Sena Şener Casts Her Spell With A Poignant Beauty
For every moment of joy in life there can be one of poignance, and for every smile there can be tears; but even in the deepest of pathos there lurks an idiosyncratic beauty. Upon listening to Turkish singer Sena Şener's uniquely compelling voice we quickly found ourselves aware of just how exquisitely she articulates that proposition. An intoxicating mix of keening, bruised emotion, raspy fragility and heart-aching vulnerability, her voice is a conduit for the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve authenticity and maturity of expression that can render a listener on their emotional knees with every breath-taking inflection and heartfelt phrase. Sweetly tortured, plaintively agonizing and beautifully bereft, the Istanbul-based Şener's stunning voice possesses the unique ability to channel the rawest of heart-wrenching introspections with a tear-inducing charm that is utterly magnetic in its draw. Having had her distinctive voice featured on several dance tracks, Şener's Soundcloud is a testament to the remarkable ability she has to invest both covers and her own nascent songwriting with a purity and depth of emotion that is deeply moving in its beauty and truth.
