Sigrid is from a tiny town in Norway but has a mind, attitude and voice bigger than most 20-year-olds.
Displaying remarkable songwriting ability as a skilled lyricist, with hard-hitting and empowering words laced over unexpected and expansive melodies, Sigrid wrote her first song at 16-years-old and in just two weeks – when Sigrid’s older brother challenged her to write an original song and perform it at a local gig with him. Born and raised in Ålesund, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, it was as if Sigrid was always destined to drive the ten minutes across to the neighbouring island of Giske, and make music in the famously idyllic Ocean Sound Recordings.
Self-releasing her first song in high school and dropping a second track that was immediately playlisted on national radio, Sigrid moved to Bergen at 18 and was catapulted into the burgeoning music scene. With the rest of the world only just waking up to her charms, Sigrid has already quietly created a world which emboldens her followers, through the power of the song.
We are very excited to have Sigrid make the pilgrimage to Dingle this December to perform for Other Voices in St. James' Church.
