Singer and producer Yari Blue hails from Stockholm, Sweden. She grew up listening to Billie Holiday, Esbjörn Svenssons Trio, and Buena Vista Social Club, which she pairs with her inspiration from artists such as Björk, Sevdaliza, Lykke Li, Amy Winehouse, James Blake and Ravyn Lenae to create the Yari Blue sound that exists today.
This soulful creative writes and produces contemporary, melancholic alt-pop jams that explore her artistry through diverse textures of sounds and lyrical flows. However, the visual features of the songs are just as important to Yari, as she handles many different creative aspects connected to the project. This has lead to the plan for several short films and upcoming music videos. In April 2018, Yari Blue released her worldwide debut double-single ‘Her’, featuring two special tracks. The opening of the pair, titled ‘Not Just Friends’, was debuted and premiered on BBC Radio 1Xtra. The love for Yari’s music continues to pave the way for this Swedish singer-producer.
