Helen Trevillion is a British composer, arranger, songwriter, performer and producer of eclectic, modern ethereal faerie pop and classical-influenced songs and soundscapes. Heavily inspired by poetic imagery, ancient mythology, fairytale and Eastern philosophies, she uses music and lyrics to build collages of poignant life experiences. Piano, violin and delicate vocals combine with electronics to create a charming and magical canvas rich with emotion.
Helen fell in love with writing music as a child, enthralled by how many worlds were contained in sound, how profoundly it spoke of the feelings there are no words for. What began as a hobby became a necessity, a passion and an alchemic path. Inspired in her teens by the unlikely charms of old-school video game soundtracks, her first musical endeavours on the internet were soundtracks for independent video games and arrangements of existing video game themes, which she unleashed to the online world under her alias 'Destiny'.
In 2005 she won the categories of 'Best Unsigned Artist' and 'Best Song By Unsigned Artist' at Radio Rivendell's Fantasy Awards with her haunting orchestral work The Mermaid, based on Jan Siegel's book Prospero's Children - the song was later released by Waerloga Records on the Radio Rivendell Compilation CD.
:: INSIDE MYSELF / ONCE UPON A TIME ::
Spanning two CDs, this debut album was created entirely within the four walls of her bedroom as a solo project.
The first disc, 'Inside Myself', is a collection of the artist's self-produced songs from the past 4 years, which vary in style from epic and poetic classical landscapes to electronic fusions and intimate piano pop.
The second disc, 'Once Upon A Time', is a concept album exploring the multi-layered nature of popular fairytales through music and lyrics.
