Abir Haronni, or simply known as @xoabir is a rising singer-songwriter making waves for her fresh, soulful sound – One that doesn’t fit into any perfectly labeled genre box. Her combination of soul, jazz, blues, and modern pop works refreshingly well layered on top of funky beats and seriously stellar vocals.
The Morocco-born, New York-based vocal powerhouse claims Beyoncé and Etta James as her inspirations – The latter since childhood, as her father, a limousine driver, would pick her up from school playing the iconic soul singer.
ABIR’s goal with her music is to inspire and encourage young people to embrace their identities. And while she only dons a handful of jams, her lyrics and sound are powerful enough to leave many eagerly waiting to see what else she pulls from her sleeve. Until then, enjoy her live, and brand new #Vevodscvr performance of her hit single, “Playground.” [link in bio]
