I am a Norwegian songstress, vocal coach, teacher at a special school, wife and mother. I have been on numerous musical adventures since my early teens. The name my parents gave her means life, and this is exactly what I stand for – creating music in the purest, highest version of my artistic heart and mind, to live it and to share it with the world. The basic frequency of everything I do is authenticity, freedom, balance and love. My autodidactic way into music and career reflects my strong individuality and courage to create with a free artistic heart, inviting my audience to experience musical and tonal aesthetics on a highly individual and elevating level. In the mid nineties my life changed. A blessing. I experienced a lot of fame with my Norwegian band THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, moreover, as a solo artist with my first own album Deus Ex Machina, then in the new millennium with LEAVES‘ EYES, MIDNATTSOL and various projects. My musical achievements are various, e.g. a GRAMMY AWARD nomination for the song „Nymphetamine“ in cooperation with Cradle of Filth, 500.000 records sold with THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, I got to tour and meet my dear fans in more than 50 countries, I was lucky to enter the official charts a few times as well as European club, DJ, dance, rock and alternative charts. So far, I have released more than 15 full-length albums with my bands since 1995, and I feel like I’m just in the middle of my artistic path. I joined COLDBOUND, a magic Swedish-Finnish-Norwegian triplet in 2020. I released my single „SKYLIGHT“ on Allegro Talent Media in December 2019, which was followed by a compilation EP release “HAVE COURAGE DEAR HEART” in April 2021 with brand new studio tracks and live recordings (live in Nagold, 2019), moreover, a full-length album (tba.) composed in tight cooperation with my Norwegian friend and composer Tommy Olsson. Each song radiates a unique paradigm of depth and width of sound: „To me, aesthetics in music lies in the artist’s true and free nature of combining instruments and their chord progression with the most inspiring and interesting tonal flow, the phonetics of the words sung in the most delicate and personal singing manner, being in its expression one unique peace of manifestation coming from the artist’s heart. Music is to me a delicate dance of color-and-light, I find both balance and freedom in these energetic spheres. Music is pure elevation, sound and colors in one perfect expression, it just takes me to a higher level of passion and understanding of the whole universe and of human emotions, moreover, it has a bigger meaning, a special connection to our soul“. The new compositions and lyrics are exactly this – highly inspired by romanticism, the many facets of life, especially unveiling those feelings deeply connected to the innermost of our souls and authentic selves, moreover, the greatness and mysteries of the universe, nature, and the power of karma.
