Kari Bremnes

Kari Bremnes, one of Norway's most influential, successful and critically acclaimed artists, is finally releasing her first international album. For almost 20 years she has been presenting indisputable quality music and lyrics, with an ongoing increasing popularity and recognition. Long overdue, in many people's opinion, she now presents a collection of her best songs - still in her very own and unique style - with English lyrics

Her 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.

Please enjoy Kari Bremnes´ international recording solo debut "Norwegian Mood". With English translations by US songwriters Tom Russell and Eric Anderson, the album was produced by Karis long time producer Erik Hillestad and Irish producer Declan Sinnott (Reference: MARY BLACK)

It is with great anticipation that Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KKV) in its 25th year in business offers one of our greatest musical treasures to an international audience.

Eileen Hemphill Haley

Eileen Hemphill-Haley plays a blend of folk-rock and Americana, with influences ranging from Emmylou Harris to Bonnie Raitt, Woody Guthrie to the Allman Brothers. Although a westerner since the early 1980s, there remains a bit of a twang in her sound from growing up in the American southeast, where her earliest musical ideas first arose. "I remember being aware of some kind of energy that emanated from my surroundings, almost as if it traveled out of the Georgia clay, up through my shoes and into my soul. To this day I am compelled to write and sing about the characters and images that constantly careen through my imagination." With strong melodies and relatable lyrics, her music is appreciated by audiences of all ages. A self-taught guitarist, her style is rich and energetic, incorporating various original tunings that help to define her sound. Backed by the skillful acoustic drumming of Brandon Schwab, the result is a sound that is smooth, tight, and decidely unique.

"Three years in the making, EH-H's new CD "Four Diamonds" was well worth the wait. She writes songs with bone and sinew as well as heart, with characters that breathe and stories that ring true."
Frank Gosar, The Saturday Cafe, KLCC, 89.7 FM, Eugene, OR.

E's World

"What a fine album! EH-H uses such a range of musical moods to highlight the wide variety of subject material with an obvious clarity of purpose. She knows what message she wants to convey with each of her songs and the guitar instrumentation takes care of the rest. Her approach to writing about big issues left me stunned. A most impressive debut album, with much more to come, I hope."
