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.

These days Kristin is recording her new solo album «Traces of You», to be released January 2018. In 2015 Kristin was commissioned by Global Oslo Music to compose new songs, the work named «Traces of you» premiered at Caféteatret in Oslo, March, 2016 followed by extensive touring.

Kristin’s enchanting and critically acclaimed solo-album “I’ll meet you in the morning” (Emarcy/Universal Music 2013/2014) was followed by an extended release tour and festival concerts in Germany, France, Norway, Spain and Austria with Kristin Asbjørnsen Ensemble. The music affectionately reveals her enduring passion for African American spirituals as well as her own compositions.

During 2017 Kristin will continue to perform in Europe, in different duo, trio and quartet formats; combining songs from her latest album with her earlier work “The night shines like the day” and “Wayfaring stranger” as well as introducing new songs.
