Ela Orleans (Poland)

“…The idyllic beach-house guitar conjured up an atmosphere all twilight and palm trees – a far cry from the stark onstage cluster of sampler boxes in a drafty warehouse…” - Jezebel Music

Hailing from Poland and currently living in New York...Ela Orleans takes us into a demure, suave landscape where internalizing is required and desire untouchable except behind closed doors. Harmonies melt into the sweet longing to be wanted and loved...

The joy in listening to Ms. Orleans comes in her precise editing of verse and melody where she lures you into her dreamy marshmallow jungle while keeping you just on the cusp of euphoria, revealing itself as mature restraint or masochistic benevolence. As she sings, “I am lost without you,” you become lost in her voice, the antithesis of the verse, delicate and sweet, as if she is daring you to actually feel the sadness wrapped so eloquently in a simple melody.

While maintaining her presence in the experimental/noise New York music scene, Ms. Orleans has participated in the BMI film scoring and mentorship program “Composing for the Screen 2009″
and has been a recipient of the NYFA immigrant mentorship program where she worked with renowned drummer Lukas Ligeti. With the many contributions Ela Orleans continues to make, there is a thread she weaves throughout the music, traveling in waves of melodic fragility and fierce honesty.
