Known by the stage moniker FIOR, which means both flower and truth, fiercely independent artist Zoe Fioravanti makes sleek, beat-driven, pop infused music with elements of funk, soul, disco, and rock. There’s a modern, atmospheric quality to her sound, where trap beats and symphonic swells provide a rich textural backdrop for her lush, agile vocals. Inspired by real life, her lyrics celebrate the kind of vulnerability that leads to strength, encouraging listeners to accept emotions and embrace the importance of speaking your mind. Fior’s distinct, self-taught style was influenced by Stevie Nicks, Cher, Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Michael Jackson. Gifted a toy piano by her dad, a tour manager for bands in the 90s, Fior learned to play by ear at just 8 years old. As a teenager she began writing her own lyrics and making beats on her computer.
