Myra Monoka is an international singer/songwriter and music producer who creates an exciting blend of contemporary r’n’b & soulful electronic pop. Having worked with many different artists in the past years, Myra is now focused on releasing her own songs.
The first track to emerge from the stack of solo material Myra has recently recorded is the single ‘Rewind’, which Myra wrote and produced together with Barna Horvath. The music video was shot in New York City by 235 Productions, directed by Miki357. The single is released by Cat Music, licensed from AM:PM Music.
"I’ve been working on my own songs on-and-off between other projects for about a year and a half. Rewind comes out of all the emotions I was feeling at the time, about the games that lovers play with each other... I’ve written all my own vocals and my trusty partner in crime, Barna helped me lay down the instrumental track in the studio. After AM:PM Music and Cat Music expressed an interest as labels, we got one of the best directors Miki357 on board, and thanks to the backing of the National Cultural Fund of Hungary we a travelled to NYC to shoot the video – hard work but a lot of fun!" - MYRA MONOKA
