RRILEY (aka Sandra Riley Tang) is a Singaporean artist who made her debut back in 2012 as a founding member of local pop quartet – The Sam Willows. In 2019, she dropped her debut solo single ‘Burn’, flaunting her various musical influences and quickly taking over the airwaves. She followed up with anthem ‘mmm bye’ and unconventional love song ‘Love Me Like A’, asserting herself as the voice of self- love and confidence for her listeners.
RRILEY released her highly anticipated debut EP ‘Alpha’ in August 2020. In this fiery ode to independence, RRILEY mixes playful lyrics with unapologetic swagger and thumping power-pop beats, leading with confidence to empower everyone to be their best selves.
Her latest release 'you should have said so' brings forward the true strength of RRILEY's creative vision. With 'you should have said so', RRILEY experimented with incorporating key principles of ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) into both the production and the visual execution of the track, creating a unique experience for audiences. Pushing the boundaries as a newly independent artist, RRILEY continues to be a powerhouse in the industry to be reckoned with.
Formerly known as Daphne Khoo, Haneri entered the scene mid 2017 with her single “Burning Up” which charted in 6 different countries including Norway, Taiwan, Indonesia and earned its highest position at #9 on the spotify charts in Singapore. Her sophomore single “Feel Alright”, released a year later, saw her on the cover of Spotify’s New Music Friday (NMF) in Singapore and launched on NMF in 8 other countries and got on viral charts in multiple countries and to date has over 5 million streams on Spotify.
Her third single “Real Love” continued her success and was featured in MTV’s popular reality show Catfish: The TV Show.
The Australian/Singaporean singer-songwriter has worked with artists such as Charlie Puth, Kehlani, Rachel Platten, Paloma Faith, Josh Groban, Kuizz (Malaysia), Amber and Luna from f(x) (South Korea) and MacKenzie Bourg (American Idol), to name a few.
Haneri’s recent EDM releases have also qualified her as one of the top EDM topliners. With features with DJ producers like DASCO, Paul Van Dyk and Dash Berlin, she’s a force to be reckoned with and someone to look out for in the years to come.
Her debut EP- MILLIONA was released at the end of 2020 showing off funk-disco-pop vibes. With her constantly evolving style, 2022 sees the start of her new sound found in her latest single “Start Again”. Haneri promises to continue the string of honest, catchy hooks in the least expected ways.
