Born in Barcelona, Spain, Irene BauzÃ¡ (IreneB) was introduced to the world of r&b/soul music at the tender age of 6. She was raised listening to R&B music such as Bobby Brown, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston, just to name a few, that inspired her to pursue her own career as a singer/songwriter.
At the age of 18 she started studying music at the Aula de MÃºsica Moderna y Jazz del Liceo where she studied the art of music for 7 years, while keeping her agenda busy both live and in the studio. IreneB has since then been blessed with eight years of touring in venues such as the Razzmatazz, Jazz Room and Vic Jazz Festival with an array of jazz, blues, and R&B music. In 2005, her first independent release entitled "Mi Realidad" proved to be a breakthrough record in Spain. But IreneB's achievements didn't stay in her home country, between 2005 and 2006 she was crowned one of the most independent podcasted artist in the world and captured a very faithful audience in the indie R&B scene world wide.
In 2006, due to the success of the "Mi Realidad" release, IreneB was introduced to the idea of Platinum producer Frankie Biggz, and after several conversations, the introduction became reality when the two finally met for the first time to record.
After two years of constantly traveling between Spain and the US for hardcore recording sessions with Mr. Biggz she has just established her residence in Orlando, FL. Now "Metamorphosis" (her first English record) is ready to hit the stores in fall of this year. This album will turn IreneB into the first Spaniard ever to release a complete English R&B album worldwide.
So get ready for the Spanish Soul Inquisition...
