Bertine started her musical journey at a young age, penning her first songs aged just 12. After emerging from a more classical route and music college, she began to concentrate on her long-term fantasy to become a singer-songwriter. Her debut album Morbid Late Night Show, released in 1998, was followed by the Tore Johansson (Cardigans) produced Beautiful So Far in 2000, before Sweet Injections was released in 2003, produced by electronic experts Howie B and Magnus Fiennes and two tracks with producer Richard X (Sugababes, Rachel Stevens) including the hit single Girl Like You, all to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success.
In 2004 Bertine released the more commercial single Fake Your Beauty which became her second best hit to date. The single Ah-Ah was followed by the album Rollerskating, produced by Fred ‘Pleasure’ Ball.
In 2006 she released the singles 500 and Midnight followed by the album My Italian Greyhound on which she worked again with Fred ‘Pleasure’ Ball as a producer. This is expected to be her last album as she plans to move into songwriting for other artists.
Bertine is a multiple Norwegian Grammy winner, has played to 60,000 people a night, alongside Chrissie Hynde and Sheryl Crow at Lilleth Fair. She has toured across the world.
