Aisha Eisa alias AishaE is a singer, record producer, actress, dancer and visual artist. She is under contract with the Vienna indie label, Urban Legends Records, which specializes in soul, hip hop and electronic Music. Her in-house produced debut album Starchild was released on July 18, 2015. AE was responsible for everything for this album: from the composition of the songs including texts and vocals to the visual design and video production. The musical spectrum ranges from breakbeats, soul and jazz elements to classical instruments such as piano, violin and harp and includes beatbox. On the album, Starchild AE shifts vocally between nu-soul, spoken word and rap and is assisted by an introspective, deep and refreshing electronic sound. Her roots (Egypt) are also unmistakable in this production. Blending spacey and dreamy visuals as part of her stage show, AE tells her Story in Starchild.

Live, AE is supported by drummer Aron Werner and bassist RoMy. Depending on the line up, AE is joined on stage by Emily Steward on violin, Eldis La Rosa Monier on saxophone / flute and Julian Preuschl on trumpet. The listener is sent on an acoustical journey with Starchild into the jazzy imagination of the artist across the Milky Way, past Mercury and Saturn and returned again to a groovy, dazzling dance floor.
