Artist bio

POWERS is Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru. If you haven't heard their names, rest assured, you've heard their tunes. After Del Rio inked a publishing deal with Alex Da Kid (Rihanna, Imagine Dragons), his eclectic writing and productions started popping up on TVs, playlists and radios everywhere. After working with top pop artists such as Kylie Minogue, Selena Gomez and Cee Lo Green, Del Rio most recently made waves by producing the international hit "Lost on You" by LP, the anthemic "Jungle" for X Ambassadors [feat. Jamie N Commons & Jay-Z] and executive producing The Knocks So Classic EP (on which POWERS wrote and featured on the title track "Classic"). On the flip side of this creative powerhouse is songwriter and bassist Crista Ru. Aside from lending her distinct vocals and unique top lining to POWERS, her credits read like a who's who of the recent pop landscape. From penning the lead tune from Selena Gomez's most recent release to working with Swedish pop duo Icona Pop, Ms. Ru has a poignant knack as an artistic muse and a searing-hot songstress, stirring the two together to create a sound that pushes the pop landscape forward.
