Kristin’s new, enchanting songs, based on her commissioned work Traces of You for Global Oslo Music in 2016, are already met with outstanding response. Kristin has written all music and lyrics. The release will be followed by spring concerts in Germany, Norway, France and Spain.

Kristin’s 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.
