Aeone - "Music is about emotion, it is about spirit, it is about the way a sound hits your heart, it is about remembering what has been forgotten, it is about the moment that allows you to return to the deepest part of yourself, it is a physical and soul experience, it is about healing, it is about joy, it is about lifting us to a place above words, above the noise of the world, it is about spirit and in its purest state, it is about love and it exists as an expression of this human experience."
British-born artist and composer Aeone (pronounced Ay-own) is known for her rich, haunting style – bringing a sense of the Ancient into a contemporary musical setting.
As a composer
- Aeone has forged her own unique path and sound - often using her ability to express deep emotion through her voice, from the ethereal to the dark and haunting, set in pure atmospheric soundscapes. At other times, she creates lush cinematic settings, layering vocals and ambient grooves, with world and dramatic orchestral elements.
As an artist
- she weaves this unique, transporting sound into her songs and music - in stories that speak to beauty and longing and the mysteries of life with a touch of the ancient Celt.
Classically trained, Aeone comes from a creative and music-loving family, with ancestors on both sides who were professional pianists and opera singers. With roots in the mystical English counties of Devon and Cornwall, as well as Wales, Scotland and France, it is not surprising that Aeone has a deep affinity with folk songs and Celtic music. Although her early career successes took her more into the fields of pop music, it was to these Celtic roots that she returned in later years and whose essence is present in her unique music and sound.
Aeone now lives and works in Los Angeles and writes, produces and records music from her studio.
