Yalene, a 24 year old up-and-coming Toronto based singer and songwriter, weaponizes lessons learnt by her and her friends in the Toronto dating scene and materializes them into pop and R&B songs. Her music explores the deconstruction of complicated relationships and aspirational love.
In her adolescence, Yalene discovered musicians such as Lana del Rey, Britney Spears, and Beyoncé who have influenced her musical artistry. Yalene’s classical training in piano helped her create an online presence with piano covers made in her family living room. The influences of her carnatic training, the classical music form of South India, come through in her unique vocal embellishments and delivery.
Yalene released her debut Christmas single, ‘From Me to Yours (This Christmas)’ on November 12th 2021, along with a Christmas EP which will be released on December 3rd 2021.
