Album Notes
The Norway-based artist, composer, keyboardist and singer from Kyoto Japan, SIENNÁ, is back in daylight to display the brandnew album “Essence” next to the 2 earlier releases. Since her debut in 2005, she has gained underground status due to her unique cultural background and original approach to the modern electronica genre.
She takes multiple music styles from freestyle avant electronica, club, nu-jazz, alternative, to Japanese traditional music – and effortlessly re-shapes them into a fusion of moody and flourish soundscapes. Her sound has been compared to the likeness of Underworld, Eat Static, Björk, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Y.M.O.
SIENNÁ's world is a contrast: relaxing but stimulating, oriental but European, traditional but untraditional. “Essence” is an essential expression of her identity related to those contrasts. Electronic sounds have been her tools to tell what she has perceived in her life and the lives of others. SIENNÁ's band members from Toten Norway, Abòn (guitars), Kristian Wentzel (rhodes), Hallvard Gaardløs (bass) perform on this album. In addition, Nils Petter Molvaer (trumpet) and The Square (remix) appears as guest artists.


“Amazing crossover features, from a Jazz infusion t a cute sort of Electro wizardry. There are also some tasty dream-sequence excerts that could lend the set to a decent film producer with a vivid imagination (Someone like Tarantino). The quirky strange tracks that lie within the covers add to a cult mysticism that makes you want to play it again.”
Pro Mobile Magazine (London, UK)

“The veteran sweeping synth pads and reverberating blips all set a specific mood the instant it begins. ”
Adam Irving - Blues and Soul Magazine (London, UK)

“It´s definitely worth a try for people who like house music who are a little more intelligent than the stereotypical lover of said art.”
Matt Gardner - Sound Screen (UK)

“This sophomore album showcases an artist who is at ease with a mix of genres and textures. Drawing upon her cross-cultural background,the ten tracks glide along smoothly ranging from dance grooves to jazzy rhythms to newage chill.”
Martin Raybould - Whisperin and Hollerin (London, UK)

“The best music can lift you out of your everyday life and transport you somewhere else. If I close my eyes while listening to Sienna, I can almost imagine I'm in a trendy wine bar. Some cut-up, glitchy beats and some nice atmospherics. ”
Andy Glynn - Tasty Fanzine (London, UK)
