Qatar,Doha,News,Marhaba,Quick,Today,Covid,Update

Watch this stunning video, and get blown away by the pure talent’s of this locally based singer, songwriter.

Her new single is out now on all streaming platforms: https://ditto.fm/will-i-ever

Elisa Astrid is an independent singer, songwriter and producer

Elisa Astrid is an independent singer, songwriter and producer from Latvia, based in Qatar. Otherworldly beats, introspective lyrics and her velvety voice will take you on an ecstatic journey through life experiences of a young artist. “I see life through constant movement. Just like Earth does not stop rotating, my thoughts aren’t static. Neither is my music. I see life through different lenses and characters that live inside of me.” Her music is raw emotion that lies in the nature of human beings. 

Elisa has been on a music journey since the age of 6 when she wrote her first song, about her cat Leo who sadly passed away. As a classically trained pianist, this instrument is a vital part of her songwriting process. Having explored the classical music world, she moved on to creating commercial music, inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu, Nina Simone, Rihanna and Alicia Keys. In her teenage years Elisa took part in singing competitions well recognised her homeland and internationally. Having become a confident performer, her desire to extend her skills and to become an exceptional artist led to her moving to London. For three years Elisa studied Commercial Music Performance and graduated as a Bachelor of Music and later completed a Masters Degree in Sound Engineering at the University of Westminster. Through constant experimentation, It wasn’t long till Astrid discovered electronic music and directed her passion towards production, sound design and sound engineering which grew into love for analogue synthesisers and other hardware. 

Elisa Astrid has self released an EP called “Blind Silence” that is exclusively available on Soundcloud, which got publicity in the UK and the United States. She had also supported a Texan electronic funk band called “Sphynx” on their UK tour at a legendary venue “The Troubadour”. 

About the song and the music video:

I wrote the lyrics for ‘Will I Ever’ on a sunny afternoon in London. I had just broken up with my boyfriend at the time and deep down still hoped that one day we would get back together. The feelings for my first love were so strong that I didn’t want to accept it was over. So much so that I wanted to believe it was all just a dream. “We shot the music video in the desert of Qatar because of its unique, raw and unorthodox beauty. I find inspiration in simplicity and stillness. I love walking around the Souq, inhaling the richness of local culture and admiring people’s livelihood. I want to show Qatar from a different perspective that is my own. This song is about loneliness, longing, hope and feeling small. Being in the desert all alone is a visual for my heartbreak.”
