Alternative pop soul dance from Nashville TN
Shaped by the streets of Brussels and Paris, Irenka’s colorful music transcends borders and genres effortlessly. She fuses self-penned enchanting European melodies with warm smoky vocals in French and English. Her soulful voice, at times deep at times ethereal, gets easily compared to Annie Lennox, Gwen Stefani, Sade, and Enya. In 2014, she released her self-produced debut EP Wait 4 It…, with songs like the sarcastic jazzy “I Don’t Need No Lover”, the ethereal “Dreamland”, and the funky French "Comme Si", that topped MuseBoat Radio's charts for eight weeks at #1.
Irenka has played hundreds of shows across the country from Florida to California in well-known venues such as B.B.Kings. In 2016, her song "Autumn" was placed in a movie. That same year, she performed with internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Regi Wooten, from the Wooten Brothers band, who described Irenka's music as groovy, unique and soulful.
As a French speaking artist, she has been featured on Radio Canada and national French TV channel, France 2.
