BIOGRAPHY

Alicia Edelweiss is an Austro-British musician based in Vienna. She started her musical career as a street musician, when she travelled all over Europe for two years, setting off at the age of 19. In her quest for freedom, and travelling without any money, she pretty soon discovered her passion and talent for music while busking on the streets – back then, armed solely with a guitar.

Settling in Portugal for a while, she recorded her first EP “I should have been overproduced”. Eventually, she decided to return to Vienna to explore new ways of performing and storytelling. Besides performing solo, she was also part of the nomadic folk-punk band “Old Trees” as the accordionist for their tours in 2015, and joined the band of Austro-pop singer “Voodoo Jürgens” in 2016. In the same year, she released her home-recorded debut album “Mother, how could you – a sick tragic comedy in 10 acts”.

Alicia Edelweiss has toured solo all over the Balkans, Austria, Germany, Poland, the UK and Portugal and collaborated with many different musicians, performers and circus artists. Recently, a documentary was made about her – “The Sound of Alicia Edelweiss” (2018). In 2018, her performance at the renowned 4-day Popfest Wien (Vienna Pop Festival) was described as “one of the most touching, most intimate and at the same time most entertaining performances of the whole Popfest.”

Her first studio album “When I’m enlightened, everything will be better” has been released in September 2019. The songs tell personal stories, wrapped in the magical language of poetry, dreams, sagas – weaving tales of sublime inspiration, light-hearted humour, bitter-sweet irony and profound sadness that touch the highest and deepest chords of human experience: these songs stay with you. The artist herself calls her music „Circus Freak Folk“.
