When your past ignites
the flame of your future. Now.

Esther’s new solo project “80s Classics Reimagined” was born to bring comfort in a world of saturation. When the soul wishes to be held in a place that is familiar yet renewed with a new flavour.

Esther plays a combination of hand-picked time-tested 80s classics and occasionally a few original songs, but with the soothing simplicity of just voice and guitar, giving you needed space, in a restless world.
