Eden Iris is an award-winning artist from Auckland, New Zealand who has been described as “an artist working in a new space” (Jordan Luck, Exponents) who has “the ambition to carve out her own niche” (Demerra Records). She moved to Los Angeles, California when she was nineteen years-old to pursue her music career and has since made a home for herself on the west coast. In Los Angeles, Eden has collaborated with esteemed songwriters such as Maia Sharp (Dixie Chicks), Jamie Candiloro (REM, Ryan Adams) and Bruce Lynch (Kate Bush).
Working out of her home studio in Burbank, California, not a day that goes by that Eden isn’t writing, recording, or producing. Her Demons EP (2018) was described as “soul stirring, beautifully arranged and poignantly observed…” by Mike Alexander (Sunday Star Times) and received radio-play on Los Angeles Station 88.5 KCSN, along with three of her other singles (two of them being featured as “Fresh Squeeze of the Day” By DJ Nic Harcourt).
In 2019, the haunting folk/electronica song “Dark Sunday Dream” found it’s cult following after being picked up by indie-folk playlist Alex Rainbird, with over half a million subscribers on Youtube. “Dark Sunday Dream” has also had regular rotation on Radio Paradise and has received critical acclaim by indie-folk blogs around the world. Eden’s single “Worse Things” (November 2019) which was co-written with Maia Sharp, premiered with Billboard and American Songwriter Magazine. With the steady release of these singles, Eden has been building up a strong fanbase who warmly received the release of her debut album, The Fuchsia & the Grey in April of 2021. She was awarded the Folk/Acoustic Act of the year (2020) by UK based radio-station Radio Wigwam.
