Italian-Venezuelan social media sensation Kaory cements her place as a talented multi-disciplinary artist with the release of her new single “Wondering Why.” The project saw the 19-year-old singer-songwriter
collaborate with upcoming London-based producer Dasin Rasheed, and Armenian song-writer Syune Tatevosyan.
Kaory’s musical oeuvre is defined by a refreshing simplicity which prioritises intimate lyricism given in a stripped-back acoustic arrangement over bass-heavy beats. “Wondering Why” is cut from the same cloth. With just a piano for accompaniment, the spotlight is on Kaory’s vocals to deliver the narrative, a task she executes effortlessly by making use of soft falsettos and a weightlessly smooth tone to produce an easy listening experience.
With regards to the story itself, “Wondering Why” talks about an experience
that is often avoided in mainstream music. There are many songs out there which talk about the ideals of love, but few which confront the reality of falling out of love with someone you once had such an intimate bond with. And yet, falling out of love is as common and human as falling in love. “Wondering Why” explores this process in the first-person, paying particular attention to the hesitation, confusion, and nostalgic retrospection that accompanies the final moments of a relationship.
Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Kaory moved to Miami, Florida at the age of 12, where she began her journey as a multi-disciplinary artist. Whilst in America, she diversified her talents in the performing arts, taking part
in: dance lessons at the Miami City Ballet dance school; English acting classes at the Panaro Academy of Dramatic Arts; Spanish acting classes under the direction of famous Mexican actor Roberto Huicochea, and;
singing classes with vocal coach Debora Lebendiker. At the age of 15, Kaory moved to London to develop her talents further, attending Sylvia Young Theatre School and dancing at Pineapple dance studio. Her current singing coach is Lucinda Allen, known for her work with performers on West-End musicals such as Wicked and the Lion King, and with Grammy Award winner Lalah Hathaway.
Now based in London, Kaory splits her time between managing her popular social media accounts and Youtube Channel with boyfriend Dontai Leonard, modelling for brands such as Estee Lauder and Nike through her agency IMM Models, and expanding her musical oeuvre. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading, and working out.
