Possimiste is a New Age character - a girl who travels in time and space. As all the songs are written in a state of lucid dreaming Possimiste makes you trip to surreal places, meet fairies and ghosts and dance around the bonfire with visitors from a far away star. Close your eyes, forget about the reality and enjoy the journey through the fairy-tale-ish soundscapes of Possimiste.
The philosophy behind Possimiste is strongly influenced by New Agemovement and is brought to life by a young Iceland - based Estonian artist Leeni Laasfeld who created the character to make people see music as a meditation. The character’s partly-covered face is a peaceful rebellion against the ego and appearance-driven entertainment industry and symbolises the idea of music being a divine art of soul.
Possimiste has been developing into the character she is today since 2010. Although she started out purely as a musical act Possimiste has now become a lifestyle artist who is also an author of a mindfulness journal titled “TRIP” and the whole visual world around it. After being featured by Bad Panda Records in 2011 her music has scored numerous advertisements for The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Design Within Reach and Spell Designs, to name just a few.
In 2015 her song ”Star Caesar” won UK Amazing Radio’s Alternative Eurovision while her another single “Behind The Seas” is still one of the most downloaded Creative Commons songs on the internet with more than 300 000 downloads. She also won the “Best Vocal Performance” and “The Most Original Composition” award in the Recording Festival 2017, was nominated as “Radio FM’s Single Of The Year” in 2016 with Analogrunner and - as many music journalist have agreed- the young and unique artist has yet a lot of innovation to offer to the world’s 21st century’s music scene.
