BIOGRAPHY

Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Eden Iris is a rising artist “with the ambition to carve out her own niche on the immense tree of folk-inspired music” (Tobi, Demerra Records). Currently based in Los Angeles, Eden records and produces in her home studio where she combines her love of infectious pop melodies, and the grit of Americana stringed instruments, to create a mesmerizing storytelling experience that has been captivating audiences wherever she performs. “Eden Iris has a fascinating style. It’s not typical or traditional folk music, but the elements of a “new world” she describes in her lyrics” - Ear To The Ground (US). Growing up, Eden was heavily influenced by revolutionary alternative female artists such as Kate Bush, Tori Amos, and Stevie Nicks. 

 

Her cinematic folk song, “Dark Sunday Dream” (Demons EP) found it’s cult following after it was picked up by indie-folk blogger Alex Rainbird and was featured on a playlist with over half a million subscribers on Youtube. “Dark Sunday Dream” was also playlisted on “Radio Paradise”, and received critical acclaim by many contemporary-folk blogs around the world. Four of her songs, “Demons” and “Dancing With A Ghost” and “Birthday Baby” received radio play on Los Angeles’ largest adult alternative radio station, KCSN - with two of them being featured as "fresh squeeze of the day" by acclaimed DJ Nic Harcourt.

 

Eden is currently releasing a new song every six weeks, which will culminate into a full length album in July of 2020. Her previous single, “Worse Things” (which she wrote with Maia Sharp) premiered with Billboard and American Songwriter Magazine.
