SuRie is a classically trained musician and graduate of London's Royal Academy of Music. She is best known for representing the UK with her emotive and uplifting single Storm at the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest in 2018, which has nearly 4 million streams. Her Eurovision journey started in 2015 when she was backing dancer a vocalist for Loic Nottet, who represented Belgium (coming 4th) with Rhythm Inside. She returned again with the Belgians in 2017 as musical director for Blanche and City Lights (again coming 4th).
Her debut LP Something Beginning With... was the culmination of a recording process that took SuRie from London to Greece (via Australia, New York, Sweden, L.A. and Borneo) and her home recording studio in the UK to the state of the art Malmö live in Sweden. SuRie recently released her LP Dozen to a sell-out audience at the Bishopsgate Institute in London; a concept album featuring a collection of 12 completely revamped cover songs, one for each month of the year, and containing the name of that month in the original title. Featuring songs by Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Florence and The Machine all rearranged for SuRie’s voice, whilst playing the piano and accompanied by a full string orchestra.
SuRie's recent offering is Only You and I, a chilled pop track, with the emphasis on the mellow piano accompanying her rich vocals. Written in Switzerland and recorded in Berlin, Only You and I takes things back to where she started, singing her heart out at the piano.
With many accomplishments achieved in her career so far, SuRie was recently elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music, an honor awarded to former students for their significant contribution to the music profession.
