Alicia Edelweiss is an Austro-British singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, actress and visual artist based in Vienna. She started her musical career as a teenage street musician without money, hitch-hiking all over Europe for two years.
Now you could try to describe her music as something between chamber pop and experimental folk – but that would hardly do justice to its poetry, light-heartedness, wildness, humour, depth, quirkiness and beauty, whether it is Edelweiss performing on her own or with her band of strings. Poetry, pop and an avowal to the weird and wonderful are combined with a delight in absolute autonomy. The result is an impressive synthesis of the arts.
Her first studio album „When I’m enlightened, everything will be better“ came out in 2019 and has led her to numerous festivals across Europe.
