Born in Budapest, István Etiam is a Hungarian singer/songwriter living in the UK.
His songs fall into the blues-pop category. He plays electric, acoustic and slide guitar and harmonica. István enjoys performing live and loves the buzz of being on stage and connecting with the audience. He regularly performs in the UK as well as on the continent.
He released his EP ‘Faith’, the first in his trilogy of ‘Faith, Hope, Love’ in 2016. His second EP ‘Hope’ came out in March 2019, and he will record his third EP ‘Love’ in late 2019 for release in early 2020.
His influences cut right across the musical spectrum: classical, jazz (Wes Montgomery is a favourite), blues (Blind Willie McTell, Muddy Waters), pop (Abba to Zappa) and folk music from around the world.
His favourite vegetable is beetroot and his favourite colour is green. He loves to quote the American lyricist Edgar ‘Yip’ Harburg: “Words can make you think a thought, music can make you feel a feeling, a song makes you feel a thought”.
István regards his music as a vocation, a calling, which he simply has to follow.
