About Oriana Setz

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I remember being 8 and setting up the living room to turn it into a stage. My family loved watching me sing along to 80's classics while on my made-up costumes. At 12 I got into poetry and soon after I was writing my first songs on an old guitar. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Florence + the Machine, High As Hope Jorge Drexler, 12 Segundos de Oscuridad Natalia Lafourcade, Hasta la Raíz These albums remind me of the time I spent at Berklee and I was just figuring out who I was as an artist and as a person. Every time I listen to them I feel like I am returning to a shelter where I am safe and where I can look back on my own growth. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Pieza Perdida” This is the first song I released ever - so it has a special place in my heart. It celebrates quirkiness and being authentic over any social and gender norms, which is a big theme for me. I love it was the perfect blend of Pop, Indie Folk, and sass! What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Producing the song and the video for Bailan (Kotahitanga) felt absolutely UNREAL. Like never before, there was a huge team of musicians, songwriters, culture ambassadors, dancers, and filmmakers. The energy was electrifying. I had tears in my eyes. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I would love to perform at the Tiny Desk Concerts and SXSW stage for sure. I would love to collaborate with my biggest idols like Florence & the Machine, and I'd say that if my music was ever featured in a Disney song I would be over the moon 100%!
