Elena Tonra, front woman in Daughter, is only in her early 20s. But her downhearted but very expressive songs have enough bittersweet experience to match the American singer-songwriter queen Cat Power.
Her songs are sparsely arranged – often with the acoustic guitar as the only accompaniment. Tonra's delicate voice is so rich in nuances, colours and blues that a big backing orchestra would seem decidedly misplaced in Daughter's minimal but effective folk.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
