Elena Steri

In a world characterized by short-livedness and pressure, the expression of sensitivity is a protest.

Elena Steri writes effective song miniatures with depth, which through her pliable and delicate voice occupy a place close to the heart without the need for volume. Sometimes she takes the prejudiced ukulele out of the closet and interprets it in her very own way, then she switches to atmospherically gentle electric guitar riffs or cleverly superimposes vocals and guitar on the loop station.

In her lyrics she processes everything that occupies her - sometimes in a carefree, nostalgic way and sometimes in a cryptically serious, but uncompromisingly honest way. At the end of the day, there stands a young woman who is able to get to the heart of her feelings without a lot of frills - and it is precisely this that makes her a unique songwriter of her kind.
