Cafe Ena

A LYRICAL JOURNEY

Verena Bachinger (a.k.a Cafe Ena) is an Austrian singer-songwriter based in Lisbon, Portugal. She writes about the places, people and experiences that have shaped her life and the things in the world that inspire us to speak out.

In November 2019 she released her debut EP, “Break the Hush,” featuring 4 new and original songs exploring how we deal with life, whether we tread through or fight back and speak out in the face of adversity. The collaboration with Portuguese producer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Cardoso ventures into new territory with darker sounds and electronic elements, while maintaining a magnetic pop sensibility.

“Finding Our Hearts”, her first single from the EP, received airplay on several radio stations throughout Portugal.

Her journey as a songwriter began in 2014, when she began studying composition and writing songs in Jerusalem, Israel. Over the next 2 years, she experimented writing in various genres and styles before moving to Lisbon in 2016.

Once in Lisbon, she began to write in earnest, tapping into a deep well of inspiration from her past and present, honing her craft and developing her own style. Influenced by the sounds of Americana, indie and classic folk, garage and artists like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Cat Power and Aimee Mann, she wrote dozens of songs and collaborated with various musicians from Israel, Portugal, USA and Austria.
