Aura Dione — Colourful singer with global ambitions

The hair is black as coal. The lips pink. The eyes focused. And the voice enthusiastic. The word “Aura” is of Greek origin and is said to be a field of coloured energy. It is a description that also applies nicely to the singer Aura Dione, a folk- and country-inspired singer-songwriter who incorporates discreet electronic undertones and is fuelled by pure pop energy. She has a certain undeniable affinity with other creative female artists like Kate Nash, Feist, Kate Bush and Emiliana Torrini, but Aura is most definitely her own woman.

Musical dreams

In Denmark, her debut album “Columbine” was released by Kenneth Bager’s label Music for Dreams in January 2008. “It appealed to me to be signed to an independent like Music for Dreams,” says Aura. “They give you a plenty of elbow room. It’s not far from idea to reality, and I am able to do things on my own terms. That’s very important for me.” Aura met label-owner Bager in Ibiza three years ago. The dialogue between the two was informal until the day she invited him round for coffee, sat him on a chair in the kitchen, picked up her acoustic guitar and played 30 songs. Bager immediately insisted that they start recording the album that would later become “Columbine”, on which he is also credited as producer. As well as Europe, Aura also dreams of performing and releasing music in America. “I think the USA and I would go well together,” she says with an arched smile – although for the time being her eyes are fixed upon the European musical battlefields.
