WHO IS ETHEREAL?

Ethereal

ethereal
/ɪˈθɪərɪəl/
 
adjective
extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world."her ethereal beauty"
 
  • delicate, exquisite, dainty, elegant, graceful, beautiful, lovely...
 
It all began in 2011 when Warissara ‘Yui (yoo-e) Karlberg had just started her transition and was using music as a creative outlet mainly for her own self healing
She discovered Bon Iver aka Justin Vernon and began writing songs about mental health issues, being trans, having Asperger’s, love as well as other spiritual songs.
Fast forward to 2016 and she rediscovered herself after experimenting with other musical projects and ‘Ethereal’ was born.
With a beautifully and hauntingly hypnotic debut album available online and as a full-time busker and musical artist, she hopes to reach out and heal others who may think they too have lost themselves .....because after all, we should never feel alone
 
 
 

 

WHO IS DEEJ?

David Jones

By profession, David 'Deej' Jones is the principal at a local ELT (English Language Teaching) college and travels abroad to other parts of the world to recruit representatives and promote the college and the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area. 

In his spare time, he's an artist, songwriter, father, husband and drummer for local prog rock band The Point Of No Return - and ever since 2019, the drummer for Ethereal (& The Elevated) 

Ethereal and Deej met via Facebook when Ethereal wanted to find a venue to release her debut album and he gave her a chance to perform at that year's One World By The Sea festival. 

Following on from that, Deej volunteered to be her 'discreet' manager before they agreed that Deej was going to do the drumming duties! 

Deej still plays a vital part in making sure the band runs smoothly, is good at finding gig slots and has all the necessary attributes to get the band going onwards and upwards! 

WHO IS STEVE?

STEVE CABLE

Down to Earth, very intelligent and calm yet persistent are a generous portion of adjectives to describe this very professional musician. 

Steve makes sure that we get to our gigs and rehearsals on time, constantly determined to improve his music skills as well as help as much as he can with getting the band some shows also. 

But...there's more to him than that...

By trade, he's an engineer and also helps out the local community as a freemason. 

Ethereal met Steve via Deej as they both know each other from their own band The Point of No Return.
