BüzE – Bürgerzentrum Ehrenfeld
THALA has only known how to plug a cable into a guitar since 2019. That's what the young Berliner says herself. Born and raised in Berlin, THALA made her first appearances at open mic events and as a street musician in 2019. After just a few months, she was offered support slots for internationally renowned bands and gained international attention as one of the most promising artists of 2021, already getting airplay on BBC1 Radio and other radio stations around the world, from Australia to Argentina.
THALA combines dreamy soundscapes with thoughtful lyrics. Her sound draws on the vibes of the 70s as well as the shoegaze and psych of the 80s and 90s - some of her influences include Mazzy Star, Beach House, Cigarettes After Sex and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Her admirable songwriting skills, angelic, distinctive voice and a charisma that anticipates the international spotlight make her stand out from the vast pool of newcomers. Berlin-based label Duchess Box Records, which has helped other local talents like Gurr and Sofia Portanet gain popularity in the past, signed THALA and released her debut album "Adolescence" on 17 September 2021. In the USA, the Born Losers label takes care of the artist.
THALA's concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2022 musichubgermany " and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
