Shrouded in mystery, Rhye first surfaced setting the Internet abuzz with ambiguous imagery, sophisticatedly sensual music videos, and that distinctive voice. Following the runaway online success of two initial singles, the critically acclaimed debut album Woman was released in 2013 and lauded by critics from Pitchfork to The Guardian to New York Times. Gifted songwriting, breathtaking vocals and deft instrumental arrangements combine to create an intoxicating blend of RnB influenced, deeply emotive music making the album a staple for provoking intimate moments.
Transforming what was once a studio project, live – the music has been elevated by a cast of accomplished multi-instrumentalists enrapturing crowds in theatres and festivals worldwide, highlighted by riveting sets at Coachella and Pitchfork amongst many others. Rhye's second album Blood was released in February 2018 and was hailed as "reserved, understated, and brilliant" by NPR, "soul-pop that hits all the high notes" by Wall Street Journal, and "a triumph" by NME.
A new piano focused project titled Spirit arrived in May 2019 celebrating the subtle magic of gentle moments and featuring collaborations with Ólafur Arnalds, Doveman, and Dan Wilson. 2020 will see the Rhye story continue to evolve with the release of more new music.
