  Kari Bremnes
Kari Bremnes Kari Bremnes' recording career started in 1980 and after releasing 4 albums with her brother Ola, she released her debut solo album "Mitt ville hjerte" ("My wild heart") in 1987. Since then she has released 7 solo albums, all with songs in Norwegian. Her eight solo albums, including a "Best of…" album in 1995, have sold over 350 000 units, and earning her two Norwegian Grammy´s ("Spelemannprisen") Although with Norwegian lyrics, close to 40 000 units is sold internationally.

Her early musical influences were a.o. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Joni Mitchell and Jaques Brel, and later elements of jazz, rock and theatre shone through in her music. Throughout her career she has developed her very personal style, easy to recognise through her strong and mystical vocal performance. On all her albums, Kari has made use of musicians from various musical genres, contributing to her exotic style.

The lyrical content has from the very start been a trademark quality on her works. Both before and after she introduced her own lyrics, on the second solo album "Blå krukke" ("Blue Jar") in 1989, she has very carefully chosen lyricists for her albums, from the Danish poet Tove Ditlevsen on her debut, to world famous Norwegian painter Edvard Munch´s unique small poems on "Løsrivelse" ( "Separation") in 1993.

Kari has also made successful contributions to various collaborating recording and concert projects, from "Salmer på veien hjem" with traditional hymns and religious folksongs, the above mentioned "Cohen på norsk" with Norwegian interpretations of songs by Leonard Cohen to "The Man From God Knows Where", a modern American/Irish/Norwegian folk opera by American author/singer/songwriter Tom Russell.

In addition to the success of her recordings, Kari is one of the most sought after live performers, and has also taken part in numerous radio and TV programs. With various musicians, she has played sold out concert halls throughout Norway for years. In 1995 she toured Japan ( a 20 date tour) and last year she was invited to play at The John F. Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts in Washington, USA.
