"For many years I’ve had this vision within me to bring these kind of songs into the world…"
She started composing when she was a teenager and describes her songwriting as rather intuitive. Musically, the musician draws from her roots in gospel, soul, pop and jazz. Integral to her development and her deeper understanding of life was certainly the experience with her own special son who was born with Down syndrome. His truthful way of meeting life and being fully in the present moment, justified her new style of songwriting and opened the doors to finding her own sense of musical authenticity.
„My songs had to ripen, like a good wine, as I had to mature and arrive within myself. I want to open spaces with my music and my lyrics. Maybe also inspire to higher realities. I am interested in what drives us as people, what makes us long for more and enables us to be real. When composing and singing, I am honestly searching for my inner truth and strength.I listen for deeper responses, so to speak. From this inner listening, the songs of this album have been created.“
She lets the audience participate in this journey, and does not hide the moments of failure and insecurity. Carried by a deep longing and devotion, the listener is touched by the great expressiveness and the extraordinary presence and intimacy of a voice that sings insistently to the heart of things.
Stylistically, Bianca Harrison's music moves on new paths between folk, jazz, soul and pop music, hand-made and finely drawn. Her voice hugs the listener and radiates great warmth.
