2015 Artist Survey: Briana Marela

Marela on Streaming Music, the Election, Bad Dates, Star Wars, and Gun Control

Jan 28, 2016

For Under the Radar's 13th annual Artist Survey we emailed some of our favorite artists a few questions relating to 2015. We asked them about their favorite albums of the year and their thoughts on various notable 2015 news stories involving either the music industry or world events, as well as some quirkier personal questions. Here are some answers from Briana Marela. After self-releasing two small albums, in 2012 Marela was emailed by frequent Sigur Rós collaborator and producer Alex Somers, who had been passed some of Marela's material by one of his friends. Somers produced and recorded Marela's latest album, All Around Us, in Iceland.

Briana Marela doesn't require a lot of space. Wearing a floral print top with her dark hair still damp from her morning shower, the 25-year-old Seattle musical artist is sitting in her "room," a makeshift, cordoned-off spot that serves as both her sleeping and work space in the apartment she shares with five other girls.

The daughter of a Peruvian father and American mother, Marela grew up listening to a mix of traditional folk music. Though she took up the acoustic guitar and began writing her own songs in high school, it wasn't until Marela presented and played a four song EP for a senior project that her classmates even became aware of her extracurricular interest.  More
