VIRA is an illustrator and recording artist based in Los Angeles. Born in New York, She majored in theater and history at The New School before writing a one-person play that she landed Off-Broadway. It was during that time that she was introduced to the underground electronic scene living in the East Village and began to focus on music after garnering attention from producers like Lorn and Machinedrum. Her music blends trap drums, ethereal synths, rap flows, and melodic singing, which she calls dark RnB.
