Einen

Einen, an Oregon Native, is a singer/songwriter who brings moments of joy and sorrow to life with her inspirational and introspective music. Gentle, folk-based melodies and often philosophical lyrics are combined with her pure 3 octave range peeling back the layers of life to expose the emotions beneath of love, loss, and hope. Einen's voice is a mixture of power and tenderness which captivates her listeners and is "Salve to the Soul". She exhibits a "oneness" with the music she performs.

"I have always been a singer/songwriter. My original compositions are like pictures in time. Moments that trickle into memory and live there. I begin writing from a particularly vivid moment. I expand that moment with descriptions pulled from my understanding of the world around me and Nature. It seems to me if we lived more in concert with Nature we could simplify our lives and enjoy them more. I hope my music affects my listeners in this way. "

Einen performs and composes with an Autoharp. She is self-taught so her technique is uniquely stylized. The mellow, full-bodied sound of Einen's voice and her 36 string Autoharp combine to create an intimate aura which soothes, uplifts and renews your spirit. Each composition gently offers a view into the hidden parts of ourselves. She borrows her imagery from the beauty that surrounds us and the similarities between us. Freedom of expression, permission for the process, and respect for Creation, including ourselves, motivates her music. Her music connects with people.

"People leave my performances soothed and relaxed. My intention is to open up your ears followed closely by your heart. I offer respite from the stresses we all experience. Music has power. I choose to sing songs that convey a message. Some purposefully contain more than one. Each listener will hear the message that is appropriate for them. I want at least one person in my audience to be able to breathe deeply, and realize that they are not alone."

She primarily writes music meant to inspire a closer connection to nature, both in the outer world and the world inside ourselves. Her album "Journeys", recorded in 1994, features just the Autoharp as accompaniment. Her second in 1996, "Phoenix Rising", also features piano, guitar, saxophone and flute. Einen's third CD"Tides" peals back the layers of life to expose the emotions beneath of love, loss, and hope. It features Autoharp, cello and flute.
