Alana Yorke

With dream-like vocals and a minimalist piano style, Alana Yorke combines irresistible hooks and captivating rhythmic patterns to draw listeners into her hypnotic and beautiful world. Raised on mid-80’s synth-pop (Kate Bush, Gowan, Enya) and standing on the shoulders of musical visionaries from Philip Glass to Beach House, Yorke is poised to emerge as an exciting new voice in Canadian independent music.

Yorke's debut album, Dream Magic, was mixed in Montreal with Arcade Fire's engineer Mark Lawson and was released January 20, 2015. Armed with a strong musical vision and unafraid of bold sonic choices, Yorke steers her music deftly between sparkly synth-pop, grand cinematic gestures, and stripped-down intimacy on this much-anticipated release.
