Einen Sings


Einen writes in a gentle folk style which is infused with thoughtful lyrics, layers of meaning and back-to-nature ethics. Her originals, filled with beautiful analogies to Mother Nature, are characterized by the earthiness of folk and the empathy of hard-earned wisdom. Einen's sweeping 3 octave range is pure and clear and "Salve to the Soul". Her voice is a mixture of power and tenderness which captivates her listeners. 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." Einen performs and composes with an Autoharp. She is self-taught so her technique is uniquely stylized. The mellow, full-bodied sound of Einen 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 music can be acquired through the CD Baby Online Music Store, or her website "Einenatedenagain.com". Prior performances include the Oregon Covered Bridge Festival, the Salem Art Fair, the Northwest Folk-life Festival, and the Oregon State Fair. She was awarded a Certificate of Accomplishment from the Billboard Music Contest for her song "Child of the Father".
