Discovered by Jessie J and signed to Universal Music, Esther Eden releases her debut album ‘Solitaire’ featuring her beautiful single “ Is this love”.
Esther Eden grew up in the UAE, listening to her mother singing along to jazz music and Ella Fitzgerald. With a voice way beyond her years, at the age of 18 now, her vocal maturity has reached a tremendous peak.
Her music journey started off with a life changing experience. In 2014, Jessie J heard Esther performing and filmed the entire performance on her phone.
She also invited Esther to sing her original song at Jessie J’s concert that very evening for an audience of over 10,000 people. A truly inspiring story that hit the headlines and so Esther’s fan base started to develop since then.
At the end of 2015, Universal Music MENA signed a record deal with her to produce and release her new debut album.
Esther’s debut album ‘Solitaire’ was released on November 18 2016 on Universal Music Mena and features the single ” Is this Love”.
Chasing Tunes UK Interview – Esther Eden
How would you describe your music ?
My music has beats you can dance and chill to, with lyrics that people can connect and relate to.
What is your new single about and where did the inspiration come from ?
I wrote “Is This Love” when I was 16 years old. It’s about how there can be different kinds of love. The love you may have for your family, pets, your passion and so much more. The lyrics in the song describes how I felt the world was when I felt that kind of love.
What inspired you to start a career in the music business ?
Definitely when Jessie J asked me to sing the first song I had written “Is This Love” at her concert in Dubai. Being invited by the UK sensation motivated me and gave me confidence. I thought if a singer as talented as her believed in me and my music, I should do the same.
What are your fave tracks or artists of all time ?
My inspiration is Ed Sheeran as I was listening to the “+” album when I first got my guitar. But I listen to all genres (except metal). I listen to artists from Amy Winehouse to Coldplay to Sia
How do you create your music ?
I compose my songs from the tunes, chords and lyrics. Then I approach a producer that can bring out the sound that will appeal to this market and can still show my mellow side.
Does singing come natural to you or did you have lessons ?
It comes naturally. Well it’s in my blood as my mother used to be a Jazz singer.
