Azusena has just signed to Caroline/Fiction and her debut single ‘Red Sky’ is out now and has a nod to Lana Del Rey and Pumarosa. (Publishing is via Sentric and registered for TV usage.)
Her honeyed, enticing voice brings weight to her folky, electronic soul, and she says “If I couldn’t write my own music, I wouldn’t be doing this. I could never let anyone write my songs for me, especially my lyrics. They are so personal.”
Having a mother who worked alongside Prince for 12 years and an 80’s supermodel father, is quite a parentage for Azusena.
Her origins span the majority of continents – Europe, America and Asia. Azusena grew up splitting her time between the USA and Britain. Born in New York, she went to boarding school in Wales but spent the majority of her life in the Wirral which she considers home.
She sites The Cocteau Twins as her favourite band of all time, and Kid A is her favourite album, however Azusena sees film as her single biggest influence with Wim Wenders and Jean-Jacques Beineix having the biggest impact. “I have always listened to mantras and melodies and instrumentals so I try to incorporate that in to my own music.”
