LA-based producer/violinist/vocalist HÄANA's original productions are like a filmscore: Nordic and Icelandic-tinged music merged with digital and analog.
She counts Massive Attack, Björk, and Trentemøller as influences in crafting her sounds, featuring electronica influences and synthetic sonority. The resulting sonic palate takes listeners on a journey whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic & man-made, familiar and mysterious. HÄANA has been featured in Vogue, and special appearances include performing for Michael Jordan’s wedding, opening for The Rolling Stones with Kanye West, and for Obama’s Inaugural Ball. Coming off a relentless past summer of festival performances and club dates (Lightning in a Bottle, Arise, Lucidity, Enchanted Forest, Beloved, La Calaca, and more) alongside the likes of Opiuo, Ott., Haywyre, Minnesota, Dirtwire, Dimond Saints, and starting 2017 with support plays at sold-out shows with Desert Dwellers and Kayla Scintilla at 1015 Folsom (SF) and Ogden Theater (Denver).
“Sonic stardust.” (Vogue) "Rather breathtaking." (Clash, UK) “Luminous frequencies & violin instrumentation tied with foreign Icelandic lyrical messages are found in her voice...” (Afro Monk) “Majestic” (Nothing But Hope & Passion)
