One Little Indian prodigy Emiliana Torrini has written for Kylie Monogue and been produced by Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal. Half-Italian and half-Icelandic, she’s a melting pot of diva and dilettante.
Romantic 23-year-old Emiliana’s growing popularity sees more than 60,000 people cherishing a copy of the album Love in a time of silence, produced by Orzabal.
The music’s dramatic twist complement Emiliana’s vocal histrionics ‘ lush soundscapes roll effortlessly into jazzy grooves. For a first time outing, it is a startlingly mature record that has won consistent airplay on Dutch, French, German, Italian and Scandinavian radio.
Her performances across Europe have been sold-out affairs ‘ with some fans having to be turned away each night.
Riddled with the contradictions of her homeland Iceland, where the sun illuminates the midnight sky in summer or scarcely shines in winter, Emiliana’s songwriting skills off up a mix of minx and moralist, passion and poignancy. Move over, run-of-the-mill, female vocalists.
