After playing her first solo tour through the U.S. opening for Moon Hooch
the vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, photographer and audio-visual
artist Elena Shirin collaborated with producers/musicians like Demuja (A), Nathaniel Markman of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (US), Moon Hooch (US), Oehl (A), Aramboa (A), Philipp Lichtblau (A),etc. allowed the Viennese singer to explore the wide range of musical and artistic interests that are interwoven in her album.
At the age of 12 Elena found poetry and music as her own personal anchor
and a way to express her self transformation. Mantras of love, trust and empathy are
scattered throughout her song writing. Transcending past her jazzy piano playing
and soulful singing, Elena was constantly in touch with electronic music.
She started recording and producing by age 15 and continued treating
sound design as part of her compositions. Now cinematic soundscapes
and energetic beats, deriving from classical music, jazz, tribal rhythm
and hip-hop, oscillate around Elena's subtle yet profound lyrics.
