These days I am beginning to see the shape of a new musical project. The songs are taking a new direction as I am working in a different way this time. I am excited! I have composed my songs in the little “cottage” in my garden. I have been dreaming about a place of my own for a long time, and finally I got my own little studio. So now I can go to work in the the morning; I go to work, almost like everybody else ...except that I just wear slippers and it takes only five seconds to cross my garden and get there.
It's truly been a great year since I released “Chain of Days”. The album was enthusiastically received by my fans and listeners all around the world. My guitarists and I have been traveling in Norway and Europe performing for absolutely wonderful crowds. Meeting you, my audience, live on stage is still my favourite part of being an artist. It always gives me true inspiration!
Lately, we have begun performing concerts in the UK again and I am really happy about this development! Many of you may remember that my career started in England in 1990 with the release of my song “Tell Me Where You're Going”. I have so many sweet memories from that time and feel that I still have a great audience waiting to hear my new music there.
Meanwhile, I hope to see you in Germany in October, and at the London Jazz Festival and the UK in November. Next year I will also perform in Japan and Korea. Can't wait to get back!
The great photographer Mathias Bothor from Berlin is taking photos for the new album. A fantastic photographer doing my covers for the last 14 years. My stylist Hilde Ottem started working with me even before that. (A very creative person.. ) I cherish long terms relationships when they keep growing and developing. We spent to great days shooting photos in Oslo and the cover came out great! ... See MoreSee Less
