Eline Hellerud Åsbakk feat. Svaneborg/Kardyb (NO/DK)
Short stories wrapped in confident jazz
Eline Hellerud Åsbakk is a jazz singer and songwriter from Trømsø in Northern Norway. Her music is inspired by the cool Scandinavian jazz expression with some added Northern Norwegian folk song tradition. The lyrics are poetic but with clear settings that are open to interpretation.
Eline describes her own music as: 'I want people to recognise themselves in what I describe'. This has resulted in music that tells short stories wrapped in confident jazz. Her debut album Utenfor received excellent reviews.
The up-and-coming Danish duo Svaneborg/Kardyb, who have cut the format down to Wurlitzer piano and drums, will be joining her on stage. This ensures a minimalistic and light expression, which fits Eline Åsbakk's clear vocal and evocative compositions perfectly.
The three musicians are all involved with both jazz and folk music, which has given them a unique sound.
'Eline Hellerud Åsbakk (vocal) ... made a name for herself with original compositions and lyrics presented in the Norwegian language ... audiences loved her songs thanks to her crystal clear diction.'
