Italian-born singer-songwriter Erene Mastrangeli, having settled in New York City in the aughts, has developed a significant presence stateside in addition to her established career in Europe. Part of a reflective young generation of chanteuse singer-songwriters, she composes songs exploring her unique process of self-discovery through a bi-lingual voice. Erene is a skilled guitar & piano player influenced by the likes of Pat Metheny, Michael Hedges, John Adams, and Keith Jarrett, whose songwriting inspirations range from James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Joni Mitchell and Carole King, to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, and Caetano Veloso.
Erene is not only an accomplished singer-songwriter, she has a deeply caring soul. Her name tells it all, it’s as if it determined her path since birth. “Erene” is a Greek name and it means PEACE. That is exactly what her purpose is for her music - to bring peace to the world.
The Italian singer-songwriter has been envisioning using her skills to contribute change in the world and to help transform human consciousness since she was a young girl, while learning to play classical guitar and starting to compose her first music. Her newest album, Love, Shine is the full expression of this intention and mission, which is fulfilling her birth destiny.

Erene’s first full length album Love, Shine is smoking hot!!! You may want to put your hands on it as soon as it comes out. It will be released in late 2018…
On June 12th 2016 Erene started writing the song that later became the title track of her new album, Love, Shine. That was the day of the mass shooting at the gay club Pulse, in Orlando, FL. That day something cracked, it was the last drop, a devastating human violation of that kind was hard to tolerate. She just wanted to say “Stop!”. And so she did; the song starts by saying “Stop all the violence, the massacre of life, stop with the guns, when you kill someone you die. Stop with the hatred, the persecutor lies. The other is you, it’s the little voice inside that cries, night after night…”
Erene is proud to announce that she is partnering with The National LGTBQ Task Force on her crowdfunding campaign project for Love, Shine. Let's join forces, let music speak up, touch people's hearts and help us move passed hurt, war and violence.
