I'm Your Empress Of

    Under the name Empress Of, Honduran-American songwriter, musician and producer Lorely Rodriguez creates introspective, self-empowering pop music centered around her impressive, acrobatic vocals. On her 2015 debut album, Me, she established a danceable, spontaneous sound that embraced whimsicality and percussiveness. With her 2018 sophomore album, Us, Rodriguez wanted to facilitate a more equal exchange of energy between herself and her listeners, to create a community. Now she's gearing up to release her third album - I'm Your Empress Of comes on the heels of touring with Lizzo, Blood Orange, Maggie Rogers and Mura Masa and follows her collaborations with Khalid, MØ, DJDS and her song "Wild Girl" with KITO. Lorely shares, "After writing three albums, no process has been the same. This record wasn't written in a remote location. It wasn't written in a collaborative effort. It was written in my small studio in Highland Park, Los Angeles over two months in between touring the world. Music is magic. Something that possesses me, shows me things about myself that aren't easy to see. It's called I'm Your Empress Of because I've always felt that once a song is done, and the emotion is there and it's not inside me anymore, it belongs to the world."

    Empress Of

    Us

      Lorely Rodriguez, the artist known as Empress Of, recorded her new album, Us, all over Southern California. Topanga Canyon. Ojai.

      It was the first time she tried to record music this way-sequestered, for a month at a time, in between touring and performing, alone but for the company of a cricket. She would later invite collaborators-Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), LA production duo Sam Griesemer and Jerome Potter of DJDS, Spanish electronic producer Pional-but the resulting project remains a showcase of Rodriguez' skill both as a lyricist and a producer, though she is wont to admit it.

      The artist is modest about her skills as a instrumentalist ("Lorely plays every instrument half-assed," she says, "Put that in the bio.") and coy about her process as a writer ("I don't write out chords for my songs. Everything is intuitive in production. I don't have one piece of sheet music for my songs.")
