PRODUCED AND COMPOSED BY ESTEEMED VIOLINIST LAURA ESCUDÉ “PHOENIX” IS THE FIRST RELEASE FROM VYLANA’S UPCOMING SOLO ALBUM “GODDESS RISE” 

Today (August 19) genre defying artist, and visionary Vylana Marcus releases her groundbreaking new single “Phoenix”. The song is a celebration of the alchemy of pain into liberation that transcends the simple limitations of ‘music’ alone. This is the first single from the forthcoming project “Goddess Rise” which will be accompanied by a stunningly cinematic and dangerously raw visual album. Guiding the listener through a journey of invocation, “Phoenix” can be described as climactic, inspiring, and undeniably activating. 

“I am devastating

To be liberating

I am dragon fire

Igniting your desire. 

I am magical. 

I am capable of

Anything that I believe”

Championing themes of reclamation within the dark feminine, Vylana channels a message that now is the time for the divine within us all to be remembered and awakened to shine in its full radiance. The setting of the track is established by the ancient future tribal rhythms of breakout producer Savej, and the story of the track follows the arc of a great ceremony. It opens with a rising wave of Laura Escude’s cinematic violins, setting the tone for the gentle ferocity expressed by Vylana’s powerful vocals. Vylana’s versatility and performance dances between singing to spoken word, and pulls from elements of world music, trance, tribal, and mantra. 

The power house and renaissance woman, Vylana has been featured on tracks with industry legends such as Jon Hopkins for “A Gathering of the Tribe” as well as Liquid Bloom, East Forest, Porangui, Eric Zang, and her husband Aubrey Marcus for the album “Remembrance”.  She has performed on iconic stages like ARKADIA Festival sharing the lineup with names like Emancipator, Elley Duhé, Gone Gone Beyond, Dirtwire, The Human Experience, and more. Her music can be heard on various notable playlists including Spotify’s Indian Chill, Ambiente, and Ambient Film Scores

“I feel incredibly blessed to have found friendship, mentorship, and partnership with some of the greatest artists in the world today. With this album I feel that I really found my own true artistic expression, and I am humbled to be the vessel for this transmission.” – Vylana Marcus

The key to Vylana’s mastery does not come from her voice alone, it rests in her embodiment. Embodiment of the full expression of the heart, the body, the mind, and the spirit–leaving no shadow behind. Vylana credits her journey to embrace her shadow as the tantamount ingredients to her realization as a full-spectrum artist. In recognizing that there is no part of herself, no part of any man or any woman that is not worthy of love, she is able to transmute the frequency of unconditionality of Love into her music, movement, and medicine. 

Listen to “Phoenix” today on all streaming platforms and make way for this new wave of medicine music that is Vylana.

MORE ON VYLANA MARCUS

Vylana Marcus can be called many things. A singer, medicine woman, sound healer, Polynesian dancer, polysonic muse. But the descriptor she would be most proud of is permission slip. Permission for women and men to remember the full breadth and magic of their birthright.  Permission to embrace this era of radical change and transformation. Permission to simply be, just as you are.

Passionate about leveraging various modalities and mediums within the healing arts to support the expansion of both individual and universal consciousness; Vylana is a visionary sound alchemist who has dedicated her life to healing the collective as both an artist and a medicine woman. 

Her most recent solo album entitled Goddess Rise is poised to release in 2022. The inspiration for the album was based on her own journey to remembering the full potency of her feminine expression, and her desire is for the album to be both cathartic and inspiring for the listener. Her unique ability to generate vibratory accord with both her voice and through dance provides a holistic approach to transformational medicine.

MORE ON GODDESS RISE 

“This is the album I wish I could have listened to when I was younger. It provides a map to a territory that I had to learn through my own heartbreak and self-abandonment. I’ve never done anything in my life I am more proud of, and I can’t wait to share this with the world. ” – Vylana Marcus 

The album “Goddess Rise” is both a heroine’s journey, and Vylana Marcus’s autobiography. It starts by taking the listener into the moment of awakening to the remembrance that the divine is within us all. It journeys through grief, rage, boundary, erotic allurement, and ultimately the rebirth as an embodiment of both the human and the divine.

This album is not music, it is truth expressed through sound. It is vulnerable authenticity, invoked as an invitation to bravery. And that’s the only way that Vylana would have it.
