Astraluna is the stage name of Jennifer Birch, a multi-instrumentalist with years of experience in writing and performing from her teen days in an indie band to touring worldwide with Corinne Bailey Rae 2009-2011.
Astraluna’s songs range from epic, ethereal soundscapes to stripped down emotions. Performing solo, her haunting and pure vocals compliment her warm ukulele sound: at times it is delicately harp-like and at others, part of a heavy looped backing with layered vocals, drum samples and synth pedals.
Since her debut THE PASS OF STORMS was released in October 2016, Astraluna has been building a fan base in her home town of Leeds and has performed at Outlines Festivals (Sheffield), Grand Northern Ukulele Festival (Huddersfield) and Gorjys Secrets Festival (Conwy).
“You will hear the lilting sound of the ukulele like never before on this enchanting album… packed full of immaculate harmonies and intriguing effects. It’s a record to get lost in”
