AZRA is a South Korea-born, Bay Area-raised, now Los Angeles-based independent Korean-American artist, creator of the substance pop genre, performer, singer-songwriter, hip hop dancer, model, published author, and motivational storyteller. A creative powerhouse and lover of unconventional wisdom, AZRA’s mission is to inspire people to be their authentic selves and empower others to live out their dreams unapologetically and boldly. Through bewitching music and memorable live performances, she creates an experience toward a whole new state of mind — what she calls the “6th Dimension” — in which she deeply connects with her fans.
After being diagnosed with glaucoma at age 19 and losing eyesight temporarily on her right eye, AZRA sees beyond what meets the eye and is on a lifelong quest of substance and meaning in life. She grew up on musical theater, church choir as well as playing the piano, violin and hip hop dancing. She also wrote the inspirational book The Cupcake Theory. This same fiery determination is what compelled her to leave a highly lucrative career as a corporate management consultant earning six figures to reinvent herself to pursue a music career.
Her first single “Dimension” (2019) reached #1 on the Digital Radio Airplay Independent Chart, while her single “Dangerous” (2020) charted #1 on the Independent Digital Radio Airplay charts. Soon after, AZRA was selected as a ’20 and ’21 GRAMMY NEXT Artist by the Recording Academy as one of the future leaders in music and featured in their article. She was one of just three artists chosen for the program and the first Korean American to be offered the opportunity.
Hollywood Life declared, “AZRA’s music boasts messages that are as powerful as the hooks, and she aims to make tracks that move your body while uplifting your spirit.” While alternative music blog Music Is My Radar praises that AZRA “truly has a gift for penning impeccable pop belters.” Additionally, she has garnered acclaim from LA Weekly, VoyageLA, BillboardSounds, TWIST Magazine, PopDust, All Access, The WiMN, Celeb Secrets, GirlHQ, Rawfemme, and Women’s Republic, to name a few. Read her latest interview with Honey Pop here.
Citing Freddie Mercury, Whitney Houston, Cher, Madonna, Children of Bodom, BoA, Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Max Martin, Timbaland, and Michael Jackson as her influences, she has collaborated with some of the best names in the industry, including Grammy Award-nominated songwriter/sound engineer Natalia Bortolotti, Grammy Award-winning mixer and engineer Justin Hergett, Grammy Award-winning artist Jamie Jones from All 4 One and The Heavyweights.
AZRA has opened for Plain White T’s and has toured for Pride Festivals all over the country with the release of her first EP Freedom in 2017. Her magnetic stage presence and infectious energy undoubtedly captivate audiences wherever she performs.
Audacious, spirited and limitless, AZRA writes, creates, and collaborates with the mission to inspire others eloquently stated in her quote and mantra, “Follow your passion. Create your own show. The world is your stage, for anything you can imagine is possible.”
