azra = Substance pop
"I think that within the course of time music is constantly evolving whether it be different variations of the same genre or just the overall instrumental & lyrical aspects of a song. However the one thing I find that is sometimes lacking is a strong positive message so when I come across a song with such substance, I am moved to share it with all of you." - Indie Music Review
Message from AZRA:
"In 2008, I was diagnosed with juvenile glaucoma which forced me to give up all of my passions in music temporarily and focus on seeing out of my eyes again. I eventually got my sight back, and I eventually came full circle to being an artist again, but overcoming this experience was a defining moment of my life where I promised to dedicate my work in inspiring others to never give up, shift perspectives, seek possibilities beyond what meets the eye and go after their dreams. This is my mission and intention behind all that I do as a Substance Pop artist, singer, songwriter, performer, published author, and motivational storyteller. Ever since this experience I’ve created my own Pop genre called Substance Pop to describe my catchy pop music with depth, I've also spoken and performed at numerous colleges, high schools, organizations, festivals and music venues around the country."
