“Once a princess Now a queen I handle my shit Like a king ”
Strength of a woman is a title this young and vibrant songstress Ethanole wears like a badge of honour. The Labasa Fiji born, Hawaiian raised and Sydney based artist credits her authentic sound and creativity to the humble, positive and loving upbringing her family encased her with through her formative years.
Armed with the fortitude of positivity and good energy, Ethanole is a creative artist brimming with good fortune. Creating a sound that she describes as “dancy and bubbly” and pays homage to her Indian musical heritage, her style could be best described as a blend of western and cultural instruments which is positive and uplifting. Moving to Hawaii for a few years before relocating to Sydney, Ethanole is a definitive citizen of the world and draws upon her various travel and experiences to create a sound that she believes will make people happy and feel good upon hearing.
Meeting up with other musicians and creatives once arriving in Sydney, Ethanole has had the chance to make her dream a reality and release her first song “My Kamasutra” to the music world. A dream that has been a long time coming for this former model, making music and becoming a recording artist is fast becoming her reality. With a variety of pop culture influencers such as Nicki Minaj, Kardi-B, DJ Snake, Marilyn Monroe and Kim Kardashian to name a few, Ethanole is a woman on a mission to share with the world her hybrid blend of culture and positive message through song.
She is driven, committed and focused on a career that enables her the ability to draw on her native culture and give back to her family and a community that is her greatest motivation. Ethanole is a woman of intensity, passion and kindness and it is within these qualities that lies her greatest asset …. tenacity. She has her dream and the vocals to match, all there is to do is sit and watch as the evolution of Ethanole the artist begins!
