​Instantly Unforgettable | Posted June 08, 2016
Uri Grey: the name alone is unique and one that sparks curiosity. Uri means "light," and she used grey because it is the color of intellect. Uri is classically trained and plays several instruments including piano and acoustic guitar along with a little sax and violin. Her EP is titled Colors, and that is a great way to describe her voice and approach: colorful. Uri produced and wrote every song with help from Jaime Arroyo on keyboards and programming. 

Colors is a collection of empowering songs and a narrative of the everyday person. Take "Fly" for instance. Uri (with the piano following her every note) speaks of a girl who had big dreams but wondered if they would ever come to life. Obviously, she decided to step out and "spread her wings." 

The cliché about one's voice being an instrument is definitely true when listening to Uri sing "Very First Time." Maybe it is the tone in her melodic alto, or it could be the way she can weave in and out of her falsetto. The lyrics are equally rich: "I want to love like I've never been wrong / I want to live like I have it all / I want to be lost in your eyes / I want to love like it's my very first time."

"I Just Wanna Be" is a fun and liberating song about shunning popular opinion and being yourself. "Inside Out" is one of those power ballads that will never get out of your head. Think about songs like "Wrecking Ball" or "You Are Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera. Wonderfully written and carefully constructed, the song exposes Uri's vulnerability. 

The Bottom Line: This singer-songwriter who just moved to Los Angeles (from Houston, Texas) will make waves in mainstream music. Her lyrics, approach and heart is just what is needed for today's youth and young adults. You can only "turn up" for so long, and the songs on Colors have so much depth that they will make a lasting impression.
