Description

The debut solo album from the talented Norwegian singer/multi-instrumentalist Mari Kvien Brunvoll, whose music sits somewhere between pop, electronica, jazz and folk. She performs everything you hear, utilising live looping, soundscapes, vocal harmonies, rhythms and effects in a way that leaves no one untouched by her energy, beautiful songs and how expertly they are performed.

This collection of songs, recorded live in Norway and the Netherlands, demonstrate Mari's ability to create sonic textures and settings for her unique voice and vocal style. Featuring original compositions as well as arrangements of two classic Memphis Minnie songs, Mari's exploration of traditional musical forms via modern techniques (as exemplified by her previous Jazzland Recordings release with Stein Urheim, "Stein & Mari's Daydream Community") manages to weave evocative moments with improvisational fire.

Throughout the album, the songs have a musical simplicity that disguises the complexity of the methods that have created their performance: by listening alone it seems almost unbelievable that these pieces were created by a single person alone on a stage before live audiences. This is what makes Mari Kvien Brunvoll such an important emerging artist.

Personnel: Mari Kvien Brunvoll (voice, live sampling, electronics, kalimba, kazoo, zither)
