My latest album presents 10 brand new, swinging tunes recorded with Hilde Louise Orchestra in March 2015. With Julie London, Louis Prima and Duke Ellington on my playlist, I’ve has written tunes about black coffee, shoes and optional breakfast.

I was thrilled to be working with Georg «Jojje» Wadenius as a co-producer. He has produced albums for Silje Nergaard, Lisa Ekdahl and many more, played with Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and an unknown number of great artists AND being a member of the epic  «Blood, Sweat and Tears». Honored!

"Pet Me Poppa"

«Pet Me Poppa»

Phew. Feels like my first day off since November. And maybe it is. We startet reharsing «Guys and Dolls» at Oslo Nye Teater around then, and releasing ‘Round About Christmas the exact same day has filled my head and my calendar, days and nights. The album was a success, made me so proud, considering we made it out of pure love for eachother and the music, me and my little orchestra. We sold out and was announced Christmas album of the year. My booking is now planning a Christmas tour for 2014, and I can hardly wait, having played just one single concert this Christmas.

In the meantime, my head has been filled with the lines and steps of «Ms Adelaide», the nightclub singer, and one of the four leads in «Guys and Dolls». We opened this friday, the 31st of January, and the response and the reviews have been stunning. On behalf of Oslo Nye Teater, the beautiful cast, the devoted creative staff behind the scene, the gifted director; Svein Sturla Hungnes and the exquisite choreographer Marianne Skovli, I am so happy right now.

Nothing pleases me more than when really hard working people get the acclaim that they deserve.
