Erene Performs Live in BK

I. I. (July 21, 2015)
Italian-born singer-songwriter ERENE has emerged on the NYC scene, moving her audiences with dreamy, poetic lyrics combined with strong melodies and harmonic sophistication.

Her pure, soul-touching voice captures emotions ranging from joy and self-affirmation to grief and introspection. Even when Erene sings in her native Italian, the audience invariably understands the emotion she is expressing.

She is best known for her original version of the Italian national anthem which she was asked 

to sing several times at Italian Consulate. Her unique interpretation on the Italian anthem has gained the praises of the press both in Italy and in the US.

Her self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim, and she is currently in pre-production on a sophomore album to be released next year. Erene is in the rotation of Italy’s national radio, and the artist has been featured at festivals throughout Europe. In addition, her live performances have generated a spectacular impact at NYC venues such as The Living Room, Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, The Knitting Factory, Spike Hill, and LIC Bar.

She’s developed a loyal following both online and live; her proponents include hit-maker Brad Roberts (Crash Test Dummies), with whom she has co-written, and four time Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Larry Dvoskin (David Bowie, Brandy, Ricky Martin, Van Halen).
