“With music you feel a moment that you already lived in the past, or a moment you will live in the future or a moment you will never have at all. It travels with you and saves you.” CALMDOWN is a musician.
We will win Darling!! A phrase that became a motto. Also one of the very first tracks from Elisa – Irini Vidalis aka CALMDOWN back in 2014 that got the attention of press and listeners. CALMDOWN originally comes from Tinos Island, Greece, and is a fully independent musician who writes, composes and produces all of her music the last 5 Years. She poetically explains how vital music is to her: “ Through music you feel a moment that you already lived in the past, or a moment you will live in the future or a moment you will never have at all. It travels with you and saves you.”
Since then, she has released 1Ep and 4 albums, a documentary and a poetry book, with her most recent album titled ''CALMDOWN AIRLINES'' setting a milestone so far in her music path. CALMDOWN AIRLINES gives her a nomination as Newcomer Video for her song ''All is pretty in Berlin'' at the ''Listen to Berlin Awards'' and later she and her - lately formed - band(SAMADIBI) will be broadcasted live at Alex Tv Berlin. Her music has been played on one of the most known local radio ENLEFKO 87.7 FM (in Athens, Greece) and has been featured at Berlin Circus Festival aftermovie. Finally, she arranged a sold out secret concert in Berlin. Her live performances and her jazzy voice and electronic melodies are captivating. A music style that varies from classic to rhythm and blues elements, combined with a particular "smoky-booming" voice.
CALMDOWN studied classical music, arrangement and orchestration. All the rest is self-taught. She claims that: ''Every instrument or sound element I choose, mostly has a purpose. I chose to learn the piano because it talks to my heart. Beats, in whichever form, help my fear explode and disappear, but they also provoke a craving for a life purpose, and so do blues & jazz elements, because they give me a feeling of freedom. That's how I live and this is how I want my music to be. That's success to me'' She has already performed in Greece, Germany, Italy as well as Festivals such as Fusion Festival, EjC Festival.
