Press Text
French-Indonesian Aretha Iskandar, currectly based in Paris, is a rising talent as a singer and composer, despite of her young age.

After her baccalaureat she studied music focused on songwriting, singing, piano, expression, rhythm, her own creations and projects, and got initiated to Soul and Jazz techniques.

Studying the piano for more than eight years led her to discover that singing was what made her vibrate more inside. She started choir singing at the age of twelve, soon after began writing songs. She has been greatly influenced by music during her childhood listening to Swing and Soul, later studying Jazz, Pop and Broadway. Since her move from Indonesia to Paris Aretha discovered the poetry in French chanson which she adores. The mix of these influences give her compositions their own personal sound and language.

Paris has given Aretha the opportunity to perform in several venues such as the Sunset Jazz Club, 38 Riv or Le Baltar, just to name a few. Other concert activities brought her to Normandy with concerts i.e. at La Potiniere, before she went on her first tour to Germany in summer 2018. Besides of her successful showcase at Munich’s renown festival KLANGfest Aretha and her band performed in such venues as the legendary club The Village or Lump, Stein & Küchenmeister.

Since summer 2019 Aretha is exclusively signed to ACT Music Publishing and will develop her future projects in close relation.
