Aura Dione About

Maria Louise Joensen, better known as Aura Dione, was born in Copenhagen in 1985. Not many people know that this multi-platinum selling artist is of Faroese, Spanish, French and Danish origin. Her talent was a blessing in disguise. She debuted with the song “Something From Nothing” in 2007. Sadly, the song didn’t have a significant impact on the radio stations and wasn’t successful. However, despite the poor reception of the first single, Aura knew that every cloud has a silver lining and decided not to leave the building so quickly.
Still not having the breakout hit, Aura decided to keep pushing the envelope. Music for Dreams released her debut album “Columbine” in 2008 in Denmark and Island Records re-released it in 2009 in other European countries. IR decided to release “Song For Sophie” in 2008 as Aura’s second single. The track peaked at #12 in Germany and at #18 in Austria. It also charted within Billboard’s European Hot 100 Singles chart at #49.
However, it was her 3rd single what gave her the biggest publicity. “I Will Love You Monday”. In Germany, “I Will Love You Monday (365)” reached #1 in its fourth week on the chart. It became #2 in Switzerland and Austria and charted within on the European Hot 100.
After the huge success of “I Will Love You Monday”, Aura started working on her sophomore album called” Before The Dinosaurs”. It was released in 2011 by Universal Music. The first single off of it was “Geronimo”. The banger peaked at number one in Austria, Denmark and Germany.
Noteworthy is the second single from this album. Namely, “Friends” which Aura worked on with the American producer Rock Mafia, known for working on such hits as Miley Cyrus’ “Who Owns My Heart”, ”Can’t Be Tamed”, Selena Gomez’ “Naturally”, “Love You Like a Love Song” and “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” to name a few. “Friends” brought Aura the biggest recognition and success so far.
Right now the artist changed her scenic name from Aura Dione to just Aura and is cooking up her third album which is supposed to drop this year. She has already released 2 singles “Love Somebody” and “Indian Giver”.
