IRENE released her debut single “Keep on Walking” along with a haunting music video: She burned her grand piano as a healing rite after a decade of studies with a sexually violent piano teacher.
IRENE is a trained pianist, who sat down at the piano at the age of five – and instantly felt at home in the realm of keys. The shadow of her abusive teacher haunted IRENE for years. But the day came when it was time to reclaim her voice – both as a performing artist, a skilled composer and a woman who has a lot to say.
IRENE writes, composes and co-produces all her music herself. As a Master of Arts in literature, she writes poetic lyrics full of layers. After residing in Paris and Amsterdam, IRENE moved back to her Nordic roots and teamed up with producer Noah Rosanes in Copenhagen.
The Nordic Spotify playlists have given IRENE a warm welcome. Her singles have emerged on the list of Finland’s 50 most viral tracks. YleX, a national radio channel, part of Finnish Broadcasting Company, acclaims her music “ethereal, atmospheric and ambitious”.
IRENE’s creative philosophy is based on quality over quantity and unrushed vision. Her full-length studio album SLOW BLOOM will be released gradually during 2020-21.
