Mirel Wagner is a young, Ethiopian born singer-songwriter from Finland. Her self-titled debut-album was released by Kioski Rec in Scandinavia in February. European release date of the album is in October by Bone Voyage 22 Pistepirkko’s label.
Mirel Wagner was definitely this year’s phenomenon in Finland. This young woman appeared out of blue 2011 and managed to convince even the most dedicated music lovers with her dark blues-folk sound. “You don’t want to listen Wagner’s stories, filled with death, self-destruction, sin, deep lakes and dark woods, alone in the dark”.
Recently Helsingin Sanomat, main newspaper in Finland, voted Mirel to be one of the most potential artist in Finland.
She is a second-cousin to Fleet Foxes, Midlake and such melancholic styles without the country twang. We are talking about a woman with a guitar who has something real to say. It has those rays of moonshine in the poignant darkness. Already the critic’s darling in her homeland of Finland, the radio has picked up on several tracks there.
