Helene Horlyck is a uniquely creative classical-crossover artist. From being born in India to Danish parents, Helene Horlyck has packed in more globetrotting than several lifetimes, with a spirit of adventure which defines both her life philosophy and her unique vocal talent.
At the tender age of eight, she realized that when she sang, the sounds she created were very special indeed. At 18, she travelled to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians’ Institute and to pursue her dream. She discovered her vocal mentor Enrico De Luciani and began intense classical vocal training with frequent travels to Italy. Eventually, opportunity knocked for Helene in the shape of the touring giant that is ‘Bjorn Again’, and for the next eleven years, she travelled the world with this ABBA tribute/parody show, which has often been among the top-5 grossing acts in the world.
Helene began to develop her own material and in 2005 collaborated with Enigma composer and fellow ‘Viking’ Jens Gad to create the acclaimed chill-out album “Achillea- The Nine Worlds”. After another huge tour with Bjorn Again, she completed her acclaimed first solo album “A Nordic Room”-its soaring highs and heavenly crescendos combined with wistfully atmospheric ballads to stunning effect.
To date, Helene has worked with Paul Oakenfold, Basement Jaxx, Jimmy Cliff, John Tonks, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Ingo Vogelmann as well as Apollo 440. Most recently, she has coached talent from X-Factor and now the global teen phenomenon that is One Direction.
Today, Helene remains as passionate about the voice-as-instrument as ever, boldly experimenting and reaching for new heights – and what a voice it is!
