Briana Marela is a Latinx electronic musician formerly from the Pacific Northwest, but who has recently moved to Oakland, CA to pursue an MFA in Electronic Music at Mills College. She grew up in Seattle, then lived in Olympia for many years where she became immersed in the NW DIY music scene. At 22 she booked herself a 2 1/2 month tour around the United States and her music caught the ear of producer Alex Somers (Julianna Barwick/Sigur Rós). She was invited to record in Reykjavik, Iceland with Somers. The album found release on Jagjaguwar Records in 2015, titled All Around Us. The latter being an ethereal ambient pop album that featured primarily acoustic and sampled instrumentation, featuring strings by Amiina. Her second album for Jagjaguwar titled, Call It Love, was released in 2017. This newer album was a more pop/beat driven record utilizing Marela’s evolved songwriting and production skills. No longer signed to a label, Marela is deep into working on a new album with no release date set. She is currently interested in sampled instrumentation and synthesis performance with MaxMsp, using her voice as a focal point as well as an ambient texture in compositions, and exploring her fascination of interpersonal relationships and looking towards creating understanding between people through peaceful melodies and plain spoken text of open communication and unconditional love.
