New work in progress...

Early this year we will release one more single before the new album. "Ravn" will be out the 9th of February and the entire album "Huldreblod" the 24th of April. I feel there are so many new songs coming my way lately and sometimes I feel like overloaded, one of the best ways to prevent myself from an inner explosion is to "play it out". I really look forward to materialise some of the feelings that has lately escalated, transform them into sound files and stage appearances and to share it with you. Let 2017 be a year of not too many inner explosions and let me maintain a somewhat decent state of mind :)

Happy New Year!

Thank you to everyone who crossed our paths this year and coloured the year of 2016 so beautifully. Some dark spots will be remembered with heavy heart, but also remind me how blessed I am in this life. May 2017 be filled with strong and beautiful moments filled with love, gratitude and happiness. May 2017 contribute to strengthen this strange little worlds history of humankind in a good and inspiring way and make us collaborate and cross unfamiliar boundaries more gentle and open minded. I am more than ready to walk many further paths around the sun, so may the head, heart and soul be lifted high and may we walk together to welcome a brighter future!
