Recently formed SyrennA are are currently recording our EP for release in the Summer. Find out more about the duo below!
1. What is your artist name?
2. How would you describe what you do?
Chloe: We create and perform acoustic pop/rock/psychedelic music with an etherial classical twist, SyrennA is connected to the world of the Mermaid and her Sailor.
I have always been fascinated with Mermaids from childhood, (my mum found about 50 sketches I did as a child) and Anna has always been obsessed with Sailors.
'Our music (explained in a sea shell) is sometimes serene and tranquil like the calm of the sea, but ready to surprise and corrupt with the crashing of the waves at any given moment.The pain shines through the lyrics like the beams of light trying desperately to shine through a small opening in an underwater cave and the melody conveys a disheartened soul, who however is always hopeful, like the mermaid who adores her sea world but longs to experience life on the shore! - SyrennA
3. How long have you being performing/working?
Anna: I have been performing for 2- 3 years in various bands but been playing for myself for 10 years or so, But then I'm a lot younger than Chloe...
Chloe: Thank you Anna, I have been in the music/theatre industry on various paths for 15 years, but as a duo, SyrennA formed in the summer of 2015.
4. What has been the highlight of your career to date?
Chloe: Performing on the main stage at World Pride, then Pride 2 years running when I was a vocalist for rapper/songwriter E.N.V no buzz like it, the crowds were immense. Also understudying Cilla from Corrie in 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' at The Arts Theatre was unforgettable, so humbling and enlightening.
