“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."
