Italian-born singer-songwriter Erene Mastrangeli, having settled in New York City in the aughts, has developed a significant presence stateside in addition to her established career in Europe. Part of a reflective young generation of chanteuse singer-songwriters, she composes songs exploring her unique process of self-discovery through a bi-lingual voice. Erene is a skilled guitar & piano player influenced by the likes of Pat Metheny, Michael Hedges, John Adams, and Keith Jarrett, whose songwriting inspirations range from James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Joni Mitchell and Carole King, to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, and Caetano Veloso. Erene is not only an accomplished singer-songwriter, she has a deeply caring soul. Her name tells it all, it’s as if it determined her path since birth. “Erene” is a Greek name and it means PEACE. That is exactly what her purpose is for her music – to bring peace to the world. The Italian singer-songwriter has been envisioning using her skills to contribute change in the world and to help transform human consciousness since she was a young girl, while learning to play classical guitar and starting to compose her first music. Her newest album, Love, Shine is the full expression of this intention and mission, which is fulfilling her birth destiny.
