UK: Glimpse Rocker elena at OWB Launch Party!

On Friday, March 18th, rock musician elena (who spells her name with a small "e") will appear at the Clapham Grand in London for the launch party of One World Beat Radio. She will be on-stage at 6:45pm, and will be going acoustic for this event. elena, who performed during OWB 2004 at The Garage in London, will join friends Gaudi and the Asian Dub Foundation (with duo Tetine forming the rest of this stellar line-up) to celebrate the unveiling of our newest project. OWB Radio, with UK-based Fari Bradley at the helm, will feature the latest in OWB news, musician interviews, and the glorious gamut of musical styles and genres which is helping OWB--and its artists, participants, fans, volunteers, partners, and supporters--to make a difference for youth and people in need.

Italian-born elena, described by one critic as "pure sex, pure rock, pure emotion, and what a voice!", has a special style, stage presence, and enough hauntingly beautiful songs to guarantee her star power. Her first release, the 3-song EP "The Last Night On Earth", was an exciting introduction to this fresh new rock act. "Glimpse", her debut album ("sinuous, muscular, melodic"), is due out on Delicious Records in early 2005. Often compared to Marianne Faithful, with music influenced by the likes of PJ Harvey and The Velvet Underground, elena's passion comes through in her undeniably unique and gripping performances.

Her band consists of talented musicians hailing from across the UK and America, and she is currently in negotiations with major record labels in the USA, as well as preparing for a spring 2005 tour to the USA and UK appearances to support the release of "Glimpse". Her latest single--"With Those Eyes"--released as a limited edition in the UK, has garnered the rare distinction of having both A and B sides honored by music-industry Bible, "Record of the Day", on consecutive days. elena also has a new website, sexwithguitar ( ), which acts as a forum, picture gallery, and fanbase for the band.
