Zimbabwean singer, FRYA (pronounced Fre-ya) is ready to share her new hit single ‘Changes’, which accompanies the release of her debut album ‘Balance’.
Frya is one of the most versatile artists to come out of Africa in recent years. The 26-year-old Zimbabwean singer-songwriter has crafted her genre-bending sound through her nomadic lifestyle. This diverse, pan-African soundscape is reflected in her debut album, Balance.
Having fallen in love with music at a young age, her father travelled quite often seeing Frya spend majority of her childhood in Europe and Sudan. In 2017 she moved to South Africa. “My mother was the happiest when she sang in the house before she passed” she mentions as her biggest inspiration followed by other greats like Amy Winehouse, Nina Simon, Adele, Rihanna and Jhene Aiko. The name FRYA comes from reading a lot of books about Norse Mythology as a child. The Goddess Freya stood out as she loved music, fought for what she loved, was called in on matters of love and when she cried her tears turned to gold. When choosing a name she needed one that represented the woman she had become which is heard through her music tackling love, bold expressions of sexuality, resilience and free expression.
“Changes” sheds new light on the artist, striking a chord with spectators because of its transparency, fragility, purity, and the powerful artistic thread that runs through the work.
As a result of the overall mood shift of her melodic vocals, the audience’s spirits are lifted as a result. It is only a brief moment, but the swagger and empowerment of Frya’s lyrical passages are swiftly restored, and we begin to connect with the bold and beautiful undertones that run throughout this song.
Changes by Frya is a beautiful, soulful and emotional song about transformation…perfectly produced that will send you on a journey of emotional changes with smooth vocal melodies and beautiful piano keys in the background.
