Laurrhie Brouns is a Haitian/Dutch singer and songwriter.
Her music can be best described as European K-pop with a soulful touch or, in her own words, “MY spin on K-pop music!”.
This beautiful and fiercely talented artist created her own unique sound/genre (EuroKpop), by not only blending together the futuristic electronic K-pop sounds of the East with her powerful soulful voice and pop / r & b / hip hop / soul influences of the West, but her love for this style and the culture has also led her to incorporate Korean into her English lyrics.

Laurrhie: "My EP serves as the first part of what you could call a "two-part story". It's about a variety of things. It's kind of a hybrid of not just my own personal evolution process & experiences, but simultaneously this massive process that we as a collective are currently undergoing as we collectively purge, heal, grow, evolve, and navigate towards becoming the best versions of ourselves, realize the connection that we all share, and unlock our full potential as the powerful infinite beings that we are and always have been. Each of my songs represents a phase in this process, each song is a "seed of light", a "seed of illumination" if you will, but most of all.. a "seed of L.O.V.E". Through my songs, I hope to comfort, uplift & inspire you to become who you were always meant to be and to go beyond whatever you think yourself to be capable of. It is my hope & my intention that when you listen to my music, when you hear & read my lyrics, it will lift you up, fill you up, raise your vibration, SKY ROCKET your frequency, soothe you, bring you joy... MOVE your heart and stir your soul in every way possible and activate the evolution of.. YOU !"
