“A beautifully dark and haunting hybrid of styles, which nourishes your soul with its sensuous and captivating melodies, mystical and alluring vocal expression, Zory Burner’s music makes you travel to another world!” --- www.zoryburner.com --- My goal is to "attract sophisticated listeners from a maturing audience growing ever more bored with the same old two dimensional stand up performers who've dominated our music for 50 years."

Film Composer, Singer / Songwriter, Music Producer.

I started writing music at a very early age. After studying music theory and playing the piano professionally for over 10 years (BG School of Performing Arts), I focused on composing, writing lyrics and singing. After having spent a few years of studies in Moscow, with sufficient education and experience in various aspects of music, in 2008 I moved to London to pursue my dreams. After having worked with several recording studios and put 3 singles on the online market, also having completed training in music production software, in 2010 I released my debut album through my own self-titled label, while steadily progressing in the film industry, as a film composer, but also as an actress.

My great passion for music focuses on creating completely innovative styles and unique tunes. My personal preference is a hybrid of genres, influenced by my Bulgarian background, extensive classical training, singing at a Byzantine Orthodox choir for 7 years, a taste in melodic rock and heavy metal, and tremendous passion for film and soundtracks.

I specialize mainly in composition, arrangement, orchestration, music production, song writing and signing.
