Emiliana Torrini

Singer/songwriter Emiliana Torrini composes an exquisite vocalic beauty, similar to the hums of Beth Hirsch and Kirsty Hawkshaw, making Torrini's innocence a delicate cast of luminous imagery. She is of Italian and Icelandic decent, but lives in England, and her cultural seascape is ever more inviting when her soft-spoken compositions are heard. She joined forces with Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal to produce her first album Love in the Time of Science, which was released in fall 2000 on Virgin. Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson heard her cool, otherworldly croon and approved Torrini to voice the finale music for 2002's The Two Towers, and she followed up this cinematic achievement by releasing the soft-spoken but beautiful Fisherman's Woman in early 2005.
