Joran Elane

A German new age goth band named for and led by Joran Elane. How can you go wrong with a foot in both camps? Wonderfully atmospheric arrangements coupled with sparkling accompaniments and interesting vocal performances.

Joran Elane on whistles and vocals, Skaldir on guitars, vocals and orchestral arrangements, Nico on keyboard, programming, orchestral arrangements and vocals, Katrin on violin, viola and vocals and Simon plays violin and clarinet.

From their press release: ELANE have their roots in the deep forests of Sauerland (?The Sour Lands?). Meanwhile Joran, Katrin, Skaldir, Nico and Simon come from the outermost regions of Germany. Almost easily the new star on the alternative music sky manages to take you into another world. ELANE?s music somehow sounds new but also very familiar at the same time. It has a special attraction on you that you cannot resist. Breathtaking: The smooth voice of singer Joran. Sometimes just a whisper, sometimes self-confidently demanding, but always clear and exactly where it has to be.

is a graphic designer who used to front a band on vocals and bass. All evidence of which have mercifully been obliterated or otherwise lost.
