releases 27 April 2015

ESKA is the most talked about, revered singer you've never heard of. Prepare to be let in on one of music's best kept secrets in 2015 when ESKA finally releases her self-titled debut album.
Possessing one of the best and most memorable voices in the UK right now, ESKA weaves together diverse musical elements - hints of folk, soul, psychedelia and electronica and pairs them with stirring lyrics, born from burning passion. ESKA has created something pure and timeless which echoes past traditions while at the same time managing to surprise with its stunning originality.
In the UK, ESKA's music has already created a buzz; receiving strong radio support from tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne and John Kennedy. Her debut self-released EP, was heralded by global independent community Bandcamp in their ‘Best Releases of 2013'.
Having built an inimitable reputation as a writer and performer through collaborations with such legends of the game as Grace Jones, Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7 and Bobby McFerrin together with performances in some of the world's most famous venues and festivals, it's time to discover ESKA's own unique sound in full force. The self-titled debut album ESKA hosts production credits from cult British electronic artist Matthew Herbert (known for remixing Björk, R.E.M. and Yoko Ono), Louis ‘slipperz' Hackett and Dave Okumu of The Invisible (previous winners of iTunes ‘Album of the Year' in the UK.)

Track Name: Rock Of Ages
My Rock of Ages too many nights I’ve tried
Fighting sleep with a crowded mind
Several days, all through the night
I’m sure I’ve heard the dark angels hum
With the melody groaning I couldn’t keep my rest
With the melody strong, nearly made me lose my breath

Early in the morning, meeting You in the Garden
The look of love and lust was in her eyes, yes
Hid away when she knew her shame
But I too was naked in that rising sun
And You still hear me now?
I wish I feared You more than this fear inside of me
Then I’ll be a witness; can I be a witness to someone?
There’s no darkness dark enough to hide
From You, my Rock of Ages

And would You be all I need?
Yes I believe it, despite this constant flight in me
I’m asking, would You be all I need?
Though the melody is growing strong
Thieves coming out in the night
And they’ve been trying, trying to take me out before my time

They call You Rock of Ages
All Consuming Fire, all consuming fire
A thousand times that I am falling
Will be a thousand times that I will rise
And You hear me now?
I wish I feared You more than this fear inside I see
Then I’d take a good look
I’d take a good look in Your eyes as You see through mine

Ooh, You’re my Rock of Ages
Ooh, my rock, my right, my anchor holding
