New York-based electro-pop & soul singer, songwriter and classically trained musician PYØR (Taronuhi “Taron” Khachyan) fell in love with music the second her fingers first touched a set of piano keys and held a pair of drumsticks at the ripe age of 6. Known for her authentic, raw lyrics, infectious piano melodies and sharp vocals world-wide, PYØR has the ability to bend multiple genres into her own "pure" and versatile sound.
Taking pure pieces of her soul and transforming them into audible masterpieces over the last 16 years, PYØR has been gearing up to take the music world by storm as not just an artist, but as a tastemaker. Known for her authentic, raw lyrics, infectious piano melodies and sharp vocals world-wide, PYØR has the ability to bend multiple genres into her own "pure" and versatile sound.
The internationally recognized success of PYØR's debut single "Broke My Rules" landed the artist in Today's Top Hits, Fresh Finds, Good Vibes and more of Spotify's star-studded editorial playlists - along with snagging the #5 spot in Spotify UK's Viral Top 50 and the #1 spot in Vodafone's Big Top 40 back in 2016. The feel-good anthem accumulated over 6 million streams and solidified a loyal international fanbase. Having taken a break from touring and releasing music over the last 2 years to focus solely on songwriting, PYØR came back with her sophomore single and electro-pop lullaby which embraced the untold, raw stories behind love - "Forget to Remember" that has already accumulated over 150 thousand streams. Her latest single “Gentleman” which takes on a character of its own, narrated by PYØR’s raspy yet sharp signature vocal and its addictive piano melody and delicate rhythm, captivates you from the very first note, embodying the perfect, clean-cut gentleman - think Don Draper from “Mad Men”. Meanwhile, it’s dark, twisted lyrics and throbbing bassline shows you a different side of the gentleman - the Patrick Bateman from “American Psycho” type of gentleman.
Her soulful, strong and distinct vocals enable her to be a chameleon and adapt to a versatile range of productions, as well as ignite her with the confidence to light up any stage she steps foot on. She has performed on stages and festivals all over the world - including Positivus Festival, the biggest festival in the Baltics at the age of 17, and NYC’s legendary Bowery Electric. Praised by the likes of Acid Stag, HillyDilly, KickKickSnare and more, she has been declared as an artist on the rise and one-to-watch. Performing for crowds of over 32,000 fans by the age of 22, her personality on-and-off stage and the camera stays the same - dedicated and passionate about her craft, while always remaining the purest version of herself.
