Sienná

Sienná is an awake-walking daydreamer, a blurry contrast of multiple styles, an illusionist of the vivid pastel sound, a contemporary traditionalist, and a beautiful reflection of the crossover of cultures we see in the modern world.

She is a songwriter, producer, keyboardist, singer and experimental music sensation. As a Japanese expatriate in Norway and live-electronic artist who has performed across Europe and Asia over 10 years, Sienná not only acts as a unique innovator; but also fearlessly brings ‘no rules’ approach to creating improvisational mixes through a command of the avant-garde EDM genre consisting of electronica, house, jazz, and traditional-contemporary Japanese.

Sienná is known for collaborations with renowned artists including Nils Petter Molvaer, a psychedelic jazz trumpeter from Norway, Mick Karn, a deceased English bassist, and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, where Sienná performed as an opening act to the band in the UK on several occasions.

”This entire album truly falls into the category of real art. Massively impressed with Sienná’s talent, writing and confidence to create music that’s off the beaten path, but that still hits the mark of satisfaction and then exceeds it by every possible measure. A real highlight for this year in creativity, imagination and the courage to follow the wildest of ideas (Sleeping Bag Studios, Canada)”

“The music is “a richly-textured bed of melodic layers, freeform electronica and jazzy flourishes which becomes the deepest house in the galaxy when the groove kicks in (Kris Needs - Update Magazine, UK)”

“This album (”Essence”) has some amazing crossover features, from a Jazz infusion to a cute sort of Electro wizardry, and also some tasty dream-sequence excerts that could lend the set to a decent film producer with a vivid imagination (Someone like Tarantino)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
