Rykarda Parasol Short Info

Ms Parasol’s fourth full-length album, "The Color of Destruction", has recently been released. The thematic struggle between sinking and fiery blaze began in Europe . The album features guest vocalists including a duet with LA artist Dante White-Aliano (Starlite Desperation, Dante vs Zombies).

Enigmatic and refined “Rock Noir”. Her imagery conjures cinematic tones reminiscent of Hitchcock or Lynch. Alchemy of literature, culture, psychology, existentialism and true-life adventures, provide inspiration for her stark scenarios. Parasol’s approach to music is chiefly as playwright and poet. She’s been described as Femme Fatale, but as stock characters go, she’s also the Loner, Knight Errant, Tortured Artist, and Grande Dame. She narrates like Final Girl: The last witness who faces down the conflict-making Demons. Parasol has El Duende - A heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity. It’s soul defining, eclectic, and elegant. Parasol serves the script and calls upon her musicians the same. She narrates between a unique gender-bending voice. The hues change easily between Motown, Murder Ballad, Psychedelia, Americana, doo-wop, medieval court, as well as Brit and French pop.

Compared to the likes of The Velvet Underground, Nick Cave, Patti Smith – she’s arguably has a more diverse nature. We link her to Edith Piaf and Dianna Ross as well as Federico García Lorca or William Faulkner. Parasol is a talent in her own right beyond words and music.

Parasol has self-produced, written, and released 4 acclaimed albums and designs her emblematic covers. Originally from San Francisco, of Swedish and Israeli parentage, and lives part-time in Paris, France. She composes while studying poetry at university and dancing tango. She tours with her Warsaw-based band in and outside Poland.
