From: Vienna, Austria
The vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, photographer and audio-visual artist ELENA SHIRIN released her debut-album ‘From A to Be’ on Berlin-based record label Motor Music. Collaborations with producers/musicians like Demuja (A), Moon Hooch (US), Oehl (A), amongst others, allow the Viennese singer to explore a wide range of musical and artistic interests.
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.
