Enya

Dátum narodenia: 17. máj 1961

Enya, vlastným menom Eithne Patricia Ní Bhraonáin ˈɛnʲə pəˈtrɪʃə nʲiː ˈvˠɾˠiːn̪ˠaːnʲ , niekedy v médiách prezentovaná ako Enya Brennan, je írska speváčka, klaviristka a skladateľka.

Enya, ako ju nazval jej starý otec, sa narodila v galskej oblasti a galčina bol preto aj jej prvý jazyk. Je šiesta z deviatich potomkov: Máire, Ciarán, Pól, Deirdre, Leon, Enya, Bartley, Olive a Bridín, ktorí sa tiež venujú hudbe. Enya spieva anglicky, írsky, latinsky, walesky, španielsky, japonsky, francúzsky, ale aj fiktívnym jazykom, ktorý sa nazýva Loxian.

Jej starí rodičia boli členovia hudobnej skupiny, jej otec bol líder skupiny Slieve Foy Band, predtým ako si otvoril piváreň, jej mama hrala v tanečnej skupine a neskôr vyučovala hudbu v Gweedore Comprehensive School. Enya má štyroch bratov a štyri sestry: niekoľkí z nich vytvorili v roku 1968 rodinnú skupinu An Clann As Dobhair. Skupina neskôr zmenila názov na Clannad. V roku 1980, keď sa Enya stala členkou Clannad, skupinu tvorili jej súrodenci Máire, Pól, Ciarán a jej strýkovia-dvojičky Noel a Padraig Duggan. Enya hrala na klávesy a spievala sprievodné vokály na albumoch Crann Úll a Fuaim . V roku 1982 producent a manažér Nicky Ryan opustil Clannad a Enya sa k nemu pripojila a tým sa začala písať jej sólová kariéra.

V roku 1987 Enya vydala svoj prvý album, ktorý sa nazýval Enya. Rob Dickins, hlava Warner Music UK, bol týmto albumom unesený a ihneď podpísal s Enyou zmluvu.

Druhý album Watermark vydala Enya v roku 1988. Pieseň Orinoco Flow z albumu sa neočakávane vyzdvihla na začiatok hitparád a práve táto pieseň ľudí ako prvá zaujala.

V roku 1991 vydala Enya ďalší album Shepherd Moons, z ktorého sa preslávili piesne Caribbean Blue a Book Of Days. Enyu tak, ako aj kedysi jej bratov, požiadali o nahratie hudby do jednej epizódy vysoko sledovaného seriálu The Celts. Keď si producenti vypočuli jej piesne, rozhodli sa požiadať ju, aby urobila hudbu na celý seriál.

Po ďalších troch rokoch sa objavila nová pieseň: Anywhere Is, predzvesť albumu The Memory Of Trees, vydaného roku 1995.

Po desiatich rokoch svojej kariéry sa Enya rozhodla zosumarizovať svoju tvorbu vo výberovom albume Paint The Sky With Stars s prevažne komerčne ladenými skladbami. Vydavateľ tohto výberu Warner Music prišiel aj s limitovanou edíciou A Box Of Dreams - tromi tematickými rozdelenými kompaktnými diskami a exkluzívnym, 32-stranovým bookletom, zabaleným do tmavomodrej škatule, ktorá sa otvára ako kniha.

„There is no formula to it because writing every song, for me, is a little journey.“

—  Enya

The Telegraph interview (2005)
Kontext: There is no formula to it because writing every song, for me, is a little journey. The first note has to lift you and make you go, 'What's this?' You play C, but why is it that one day it leads to G and it didn't yesterday? I don't know. It's everything. It's the walk you take in the morning, it's the night before, the meeting with people, landscapes, the chats, all of that evolves in some way into melody, but I'm not sure how it's going to happen. I'm dealing with the unknown all the time and that is exciting.

„There is no set sort of rules, or no set sort of formula to the way we work in the studio … so it's difficult to know … what we'll move on to next.“

—  Enya

KSCA interview (1996)
Kontext: There is no set sort of rules, or no set sort of formula to the way we work in the studio... so it's difficult to know... what we'll move on to next. We don't like to say, "Never, no we'd never do this"... But, we... like the setup as far as there's only three people in the studio... because the work is very personal, very intimate, very emotional... and that is very important to the album.

„There might be one little thing that makes all the difference, one note or one word. The fine-tuning is all important, and you've got to stay there until you get it right … That's why it can take years.“

„People have this image of me as an ethereal Lady of Shalott, floating across the battlements, but it's a very small castle as castles go — with no big ballrooms…“

—  Enya

You interview (2006)
Kontext: I live in Victorian Gothic castle in Killiney that I was so bold as to rename Manderley, because Daphne du Maurier 's Rebecca is one of my favourite books.... People have this image of me as an ethereal Lady of Shalott, floating across the battlements, but it's a very small castle as castles go — with no big ballrooms... I don't write my music in my home, only in the studio; I want as normal life as possible at home, with dinner parties and entertaining.

„Amarantine is an ancient word, which means eternity. The poets describe an undying flower with that word, and I fell in love with that idea …“

—  Enya

Anna interview (2005)
Kontext: Amarantine is an ancient word, which means eternity. The poets describe an undying flower with that word, and I fell in love with that idea... For me that word suited rhythmically to the refrain of the piece. A-ma-ran-ti-ne. In our website the fans tried to guess something super-romantic to be the album's name, but this word was obviously never guessed by anyone.

„I could have been more famous if I did all the glitzy things, but celebrity always seemed so unnecessary … Fame and success are very different things, anyway.“

—  Enya

The Times Magazine interview (2005)
Kontext: I could have been more famous if I did all the glitzy things, but celebrity always seemed so unnecessary... Fame and success are very different things, anyway. The music sold itself before anybody knew who I was, so I felt I had a choice. I told the record company I didn't feel the need to be out there at red-carpet events. I wanted a career. But I wanted to keep myself intact as a person.

„I get very inspired by traveling, by being home in Donegal … all those wonderful moments I'll take with me to the studio. And they, ah, then become at some stage, a melody. That emotion that I loved at some stage will evolve as a melody.“

„Music is like a mirror in front of you. You're exposing everything, but surely that's better than suppressing. … You have to dig deep and that can be hard for anybody, no matter what profession. I feel that I need to actually push myself to the limit to feel happy with the end result.“

—  Enya

The Telegraph interview (2005)
Kontext: The word workaholic is so severe, but I do focus a lot on my work... I think a lot about what I'm doing in all aspects of my life, what am I trying to achieve here, am I happy with this? Music is like a mirror in front of you. You're exposing everything, but surely that's better than suppressing.... You have to dig deep and that can be hard for anybody, no matter what profession. I feel that I need to actually push myself to the limit to feel happy with the end result.
