Kristin Asbjørnsen

Singer and songwriter Kristin Asbjørnsen is one of the most distinguished artists on the vibrating extended music scene in Norway. Over the last decade, she has received overwhelming international response from critics and the public alike for her personal and unique musical expression.

Autumn 2013 saw the release of Kristin’s new enchanting and critically acclaimed solo-album “I’ll meet you in the morning” (Emarcy/Universal Music).

The album was followed by an extended release tour in France, Germany, Austria, Spain and Norway and more concerts coming up during spring 2015. The music affectionately reveals her enduring passion for African American spirituals.
