When you think of PAENDA, the first thing that may come to mind is the Austrian artist’s magnificent blue hair. But above all, she is known as a self-determined, authentic pop act who feels just as comfortable in the studio as on the stage. The artist is among the very few women in the music business who produces her songs single-handedly. A “Self Do, Self Have, Self Made” attitude that has already brought her to an audience of millions.

In 2019, her second album “EVOLUTION II“ is being released, which is purposefully striving towards widespread electro pop. At the same time, the singer is catapulted into the international limelight: As the Austrian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, she finds herself in front of an audience of millions. A real career highlight after only two years – which changes a lot. Concerts like Electric Nation in Graz or as headliner of Popfest Vienna follow. 

After two years of successful single releases – landing her in playlists such as New Music Friday, Dance and Pop Brandneu and Equal GSA on Spotify or Apples NMD International as well as Amazon‘s Taufrisch Pop or Shazam‘s Best New Songs International – PAENDA is finally working on a new album, set to be released in on October 6th, 2023: CALL ME CAT will feature fresh, mature pop tunes dealing with topics such as equality, cat calling, anxiety issues and female sexuality.
