Hello, dear cynics and dreamers. I’m Synne Eileen. I write songs, and sometimes I sing them too.
For the past three years I’ve been writing and recording songs for my debut album. It’s taken me some time to figure out how to put words and sounds to the message I want to share with you. I’m blessed to know so many wonderfully talented artists and musicians, who have taken part in this process, and that have each contributed to putting their colours on my black and white song-sketches. This music will, hopefully when completed, reflect some of the joy, the heartache and the utter confusion it can mean to be alive. (I know, that sounds pretentious as fuck. If anyone ever cracks the code to writing about emotion and art without sounding like an ass, please do let me know.) In all honesty though, I believe that despite my still limited life experience, I have something to say. And I want to share it with you. Some of you will probably hate it. Art is meant to stir emotions, and we all feel those differently. But when I write or sing songs, it’s not something I do to front myself, but to tell a story or convey something that can resonate within you. If I can pull that off, this is something I proudly can represent, forever.
So, until this album is ready… Here are some pieces from my old life. It may give you an idea of who I am, or was.
