Warm&Cool songs by a raw-power artist 

Irene Graziadei is an Italian independent artist living in Berlin.

On the stage she plays electric guitar and sings, using effects and loop-station, producing a direct and personal, pretty grungy alternative songwriting. What most impresses her audience is the way she uses her voice, covering a wide range and modulating from rough to brilliant, from whisper to scream. Her songs describe her search for truthfulness: often unconventional if not even weird, they still sound simple and straightforward, from time to time round and sharp-cornered, talking straight or maybe leaving a slice of ambiguity. Sometimes edgy, others dramatic or maybe ironical, hermetical as well as the exact opposite, the lyrics, mostly in Italian, drive the composition and the performance, so that even non-Italian speakers catch the intention and get touched by it in ways that go beyond reason and language.

One-Woman Music Production

From the very beginning of her career Irene has been learning how to record and produce her music. Arranging, recording, mixing: the whole work behind a piece of music has always fascinated her and being able to record and produce her songs by herself was the best way for her to work. After private lessons, musicology studies, early music experience as a child, who knows how many tutorials about mixing techniques and some extra workshops she found herself composing and producing even other kinds of music, instrumental stuff, soundtracks, using both acoustic and electronic instruments and taking advantage of the technology available and so delivering finished and fully self-produced pieces of music, in various styles and for quite any instrument. 

Short Bio

After a long and contorted way searching for her artistic language, from flute and music theory lessons as a child, writing from the age of 7, then some theater experiences as a teenager and even some experiments with visual arts, Irene started to write songs and to take lessons in guitar and music theory&production by Friedrich Schapper in 2007. Between 2010 and 2013 she attended the faculty of musicology at the Humboldt University in Berlin, where she integrated her knowledge of harmony, composition, music history and production. Since then she’s been composing and performing regularly in various clubs in Berlin.
