ERWILIAN - Billboard #1 Acoustic Ensemble: Description
Blending elements from celtic, new age, and world music, Seattle-based Billboard #1 ensemble Erwilian's cross-genre style is led by soprano recorder, violin, and hammered dulcimer, with an eclectic range of supporting instrumentation - nothing synthesized, everything acoustic.
Celebrated for their commitment to expanding the boundaries of acoustic instrumentation, Erwilian's live concerts showcase their wide-ranging collection of instruments including celesta, harps, hammered dulcimers, recorders, strings, and many others. Drawing on the diverse musical and life stories of each of its members, the signature sound and energy Erwilian brings to the stage ensures a memorable live performance for both the eyes and ears. The late music critic Michael Diamond summarized, "There is no doubt that Erwilian has the power to thoroughly engage an audience. Each member is a virtuoso... but more than their individual talents is the level of interplay between them that is absolutely magical."
Through the 2010s, Erwilian has received broad acclaim, most recently debuting their EP ADVENT (2019) at #1 on the Billboard New Age charts, #1 Billboard Heatseekers - Pacific, and #26 Billboard Independent Album. In February 2015, Winds of Samsara (Ricky Kej & Wouter Kellerman), with contributions by Erwilian, was awarded Best New Age Album at the 57th GRAMMYÂ®
