Kerensa Stephens is a vocalist, lyricist and composer from the south of New Zealand. With a lifetime of artistic exploration from dance to music and multimedia production, she brings to her music an emotional poetics and to her lyrics, a worldly awareness.
Aviatrix, evokes the invitation to lift off and let go, to be drawn into
a journey through time and place and magic using inventive as well as
classical vocal techniques. This collection draws upon elemental notions of water, sun, breath, starlight, flight, dreams.
The fluidity of music, the surprising multivariance, the trust, the
inspiration, the imaginative force; the all encompassing strength and
belief in the power of music to transform is what drives Aviatrix.
