THE SOUNDS OF URSA: The Sounds Of Ursa is the music and alias of Bristol, UK singer-songwriter, composer and pianist Helen Stanley.

Helen’s songwriting narrates snap-shot tales of those fallen from grace, touched by prevalent madness or elated by the human experience and the beauty of nature.

Although musically you may find yourself at an unlikely crossroads where the unsettling highway to David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, the breathtaking coastal path of Cinematic Orchestra’s neo-classical/jazz and the enchanted yellow brick road all rendezvous, The Sounds Of Ursa are undoubtedly in a league of their own and at times harnesses a beauty utterly indescribable.

The brand new, currently unreleased debut EP ‘Patience Panacea’ features Helen’s cinematic, ethereal, dreamy arrangements with a distinctive instrumental palette including Vibes, Hammered Dulcimer, Musical Saw, Water-phone, harmonium and Electric Violin with her keys and voice firmly at the helm.

Live, Ursa has developed far beyond a collection of songs; under Helen’s musical direction a band of hand-picked highly accomplished musicians create a dynamic show. ‘Imagined film-soundtrack’ instrumentals set the scenes where songs can seamlessly emerge and take shape. This is a sonic journey that evokes atmospheres and emotions of truly dramatic proportions
