Editors Notes:
Born in Strasbourg, France, Oriana is a typical example of what it feels like ‘not being born in the right place’. Though she says that everything she went through made her who she is today, so she wouldn’t change any of it’, it hasn’t been a straightforward journey for her to establish herself as a singer/songwriter performing in venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Stadium or the renowned Cheltenham and Edinburgh festivals.

‘After years of hard work, I’m still learning every day. I can’t believe all the things I have already accomplished though! I’ve recorded my first original album with amazing producer Koby Israelite, mastered it at The Abbey Road Studios with Grammy award winner Geoff Poesche, performed at the Eiffel Tower, in the middle East and travelled around the world! On side projects I’ve been on a movie set with Brad Pitt, started to sell my paintings and produce my own tracks, and received a 5 star review at the Edinburgh Festival for my performance as Edith Piaf! I’ve met so many amazing people and love how we all support one another in our community, or should I say family’!

Oriana’s four-octave range but most importantly her talent as a songwriter and vibrant personality has opened up doors Oriana could only have imagined. Wanting to move and inspire with her music, she is a strong advocate for empowering women to work hard and follow their dreams, but she is also passionate about reducing the stigma around mental health in today’s society, and much of her passions shines through in her eloquently, yet playfully written songs. Her upcoming as yet untitled album will be released next year and is a Jazz and Pop influenced album about impossible love, confidence and inner empowerment.

Oriana regularly performs in iconic jazz clubs in London and Europe with her eclectic mix of her own great songs and the French chanteuse songs of Edith Piaf.

Oriana quotes:

‘2018 has been an interesting year so far and has marked for me the beginning of Charitable collaborations with charities such as BBC Children In Need, Barnardo's and Kawasaki Fund.

Being part of a prime-time TV Show has certainly opened those news doors and it always feels great to give back and help the others when we are lucky to do the things we love and want in life.

It all started to happen when we all performed with my fellow judges of the show 'All Together Now' (that aired between January and March on BBC One if you haven't watched it!) at the fashion event from the 'Fashion Collective London' in support of BBC Children in Need at The Hilton Waldorf.’

Born in Strasbourg, France, Oriana is a typical exemple of what it feels like ‘not being born in the right place’. Though she says that everything she went through made her who she is today, so she wouldn’t change any of it’, it hasn’t been a straightforward journey for her to establish herself as a singer/songwriter performing in venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Stadium or the renowned Cheltenham and Edinburgh festivals.

Coming from a multicultural family with Italian and Spanish heritance, she knew very early on that her life would be dedicated to the arts, and especially music:

'I’ve known I was a singer since a very early age. My father was playing the guitar and writing stories, and since I was little I was influenced by this creativity: I was always dancing, acting, drawing…I remember my first role being Charlie Chaplin in a play at school when I was around seven years old, and I also remember winning a poem and illustration competition at around the same age. At the time I was blown away by classical music (especially Mozart’s requiem) and wanted to be an opera singer. I soon joined a choir and started to study violin at the Conservatoire'.

A path that could have seemed so straightforward was in fact tinted by self confidence issues related to her image and abilities; a shyness and personal issues that would consequently affect her development in doing what she loved the most. In order to overcome those issues she started to develop her own inner world, that would prevent her even more from sharing her gifts.

Having studied ballet, opera, violin and piano for many years and subsequently approaching different genres of music, Oriana was still trying to find a way to express herself, but in vain. France didn’t seem to be a country where making a living as an artist or as a performer is very encouraged, and she ended up in a place believing that it was all just a dream, and that dreams couldn’t come true.

But her desire was strong, and although she didn’t know anyone in the music world, nor did she have any money, ‘when you really want it you always find a way’, she says. She started dancing in clubs and parisian cabarets in order to overcome her issues with her own image, a decisive move for the rest of her career: ' Performing almost naked in front of people has really helped me to overcome my insecurities and reach the next stage in my life: I don't know if I would feel as comfortable in my own skin today if I hadn't been through that!'. As a result, the opportunity for her to come to London soon presented itself and she found herself working on her first EP. ‘It was not easy in the beginning, I was just being told that I was not singing well enough, that my accent was too strong.. I was not feeling well, it was a really tough time.. I was working with a producer who would make me do over 100 takes for one syllabe!’ she says. But Oriana kept going.

‘After years of hard work, I’m still learning every day. I can’t believe all the things I have already accomplished though! I’ve recorded my first original album with amazing producer Koby Israelite, mastered it at The Abbey Road Studios with grammy award winner Geoff Poesche, performed at the Eiffel Tower, in the middle East and travelled around the world! On side projects I’ve been on a movie set with Brad Pitt, started to sell my paintings and produce my own tracks, and I’ve just received a 5 star review at the Edinburgh Festival for my performance as Edith Piaf! I’ve met so many amazing people and love how we all support one another in our community..or should I say family’!

Her four-octave range but most importantly her talent as a songwriter and vibrant personality has opened up doors Oriana could only have imagined. She has taken part in the new BBC1 music TV show 'All Together Now' earlier this year, featuring as a judge alongside Spice Girl Geri Horner and presenter Rob Beckett. She has also appeared in the new French TV program 'French in the city' on the main channel M6, hosted by David Ginola. Wanting to move and inspire with her music, she is a strong advocate for empowering women to work hard and follow their dreams, but she is also passionate about reducing the stigma around mental health in today’s society, and much of her passions shines through in her eloquently, yet playfully written songs. Her upcoming album ‘Because I’m French’ will be released next year and is a Jazz and Pop influenced album about impossible love, confidence and inner empowerment.
