Pretty Cliché (CD)
Helaine Vis is a singer-songwriter from Kraków is releasing her debut album „Pretty Cliché“. Her captivating and unique voice takes listeners on a journey through the emotions of a young girl becoming a woman in Poland. Her heartfelt stories wrapped in pop sounds extend far beyond teenage tales of love and loss. Helaine, like so many others of her generation, has dealt with deep insecurity and depression along her road to self-discovery in the age of social media. Music has always been Helaine's medicine for sleepless nights and rough mornings. This autobiographical record is a collection of her thoughts, stories, memories and diary pages from the last decade. Helaine shares with the listeners not only romantic, deep aspects of her life, but also shameful, sad or seemingly unimportant moments that shaped who she is. Helaine isn't hiding her darker sides, on the contrary she emphasizes them. Helaine writes songs to help people who are also feeling lost in this fast and uncompromising society by depicting the entire experience of being a human being. Spreading a message that it’s ok to make mistakes and be wrong sometimes.
