Norwegian musician with UK concerts

 Date:27/01/2008 - 02/02/2008

Following the release of her debut album, Silje Nes, an up-and-coming Norwegian musician, is playing three concerts in the UK in January and February.

Silje Nes released her debut album ‘Ames Room’ in the UK in December. The album, which is out on record label Fat Cat, was recorded at home by the Norwegian multi-instrumentalist/ singer/ songwriter, and gathers material she created between autumn 2004 and summer 2007. The music is a mixture of instruments, electronics and vocals, and was written and composed entirely by the aspiring misician, with exception of the first track, which was penned by Kristian Stockhaus from the Norwegian band ‘Ungdomskulen’. Silje wrote the songs while she was recording the music, as she explains, “It’s the recording that I enjoy, and I can’t separate that from the songwriting.”

Silje grew up in Leikanger in Sognfjord, Norway, before moving to Bergen in 2000, where she started writing and recording her own music on a laptop. Although her background is in classical piano, she would use other instruments that she had no experience of playing, guided by sounds that she loved.

Silje Nes will play three concerts in the UK, two in London and one in Bristol.
