NORTHERN LULLABIES

Listen to the album on 

Apple Music, Tidal or Spotify

Since its release, Northern Lullabies has become a success with critics and audiences around the world – both young and old. It has received enthusiastic reviews, been nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Spellemannprisen, listed as one of the best albums of 2020, and radio stations around Europe have devoted full programs to the album. 

Out of the album's ten tracks, Apple Music has placed 5 tracks

– a full half of the album – on their official global playlists

for modern classical music and jazz. 

 

VISUALS

The album cover for Northern Lullabies and the single Chloe's Midnight Feast (right) were illustrated by Hamdi Barakat. He's got a unique eye, sensibility and a fairy tale flair which made him the perfect match for this cover. 


To me, visual inspiration is also vital 

in the process of writing music.

YOUR EXPERIENCE?

What is your experience with the album?

At its heart, this album is about creating something for both kids and adults:

A calm, warm and dreamy fairy tale world that both young and old can sink into

 – and (hopefully) enjoy – both seperately and together.


I wanted to create an album that can help you

wind down after a long day. With or without kids.

It's incredible to hear from people who tell me that this album has been a life-saver,

especially these past months.

Some say that their kids calm down and play quietly as soon as they put on this album.

They calm down in the car, or at home playing – and they fall easily asleep to the music when put to bed. 

The parents calm down with it as well, some even fall asleep to it before the kids. 

And you certainly don't have to have kids to listen to it. I have heard from just as many non-parents,

who find value in this album for themselves. 

I would love to hear more from you. What experiences have you had?
