I know this means two Introducing posts in a row, but honestly Daughter aka Elena Tonra, is worth it. Despite the fact that she has only just released a demo it is easy to see her talent shine through and, having just announced that she will be part of HMV’s Next Big Thing festival next year, hopefully everything bodes well for 2011 bringing success to this incredibly talented young lady. The song below Peter, is a stunning introduction to a beautiful voice that will leave you lost for words. It is achingly and tragically enchanting, which is a perfect way of describing the rest of the four-song demo she has produced (available HERE) Your Kisses tells a tale of lost love, while Run is more uptempo singing of running from danger, fleeing with a loved one. In each and every song she has produced a captivating story that it is impossible to not feel drawn into thanks to the way her delicate voice makes every word and emotion feel utterly sincere. What she has managed to exemplify is just how phenomonal music can sound when stripped back to the bare bones of an acoustic guitar and a voice. This undercurrent of music relying on simplicity to be hard-hitting is a running theme at the moment both within music as a whole, and this blog in all honesty! However, Daughter makes it look easy with such charm that she has the ability to stand above other artists within her genre.
So sit back and enjoy, I promise it is a worthwhile experience for the beauty of Daughter’s music.
Don’t forget you can download the demo, or find her on Facebook to provide some well deserved support.
