Biography

Singer/songwriter Frida Amundsen (born September 9, 1992) from the small town of Vaksdal in Norway landed a recording contract with EMI Music in the autumn of 2009, after the recording company received a demo she had recorded with help from producers Lars Hustoft and Yngve Høyland. At the time, Frida was studying music in high school in the town of Voss, on the west coast of Norway. EMI Music travelled to Voss only a few days after receiving the demo and signed the young girl with the big voice on the spot. Frida started working in a recording studio, writing songs and recording tracks, all whilst completing high school.

In May 2011, whilst Frida was sitting her final exams, her first single, “Closer”, was released. Her evocative lyrics and unforgettable voice has been spellbinding radio listeners since.

«I would describe “Closer” as a light, summery song about young love, and let my listeners interpret it as they wish. But essentially the song is about having feelings for someone who does not reciprocate», explains Frida.

“Closer”, written by Frida and produced by Lars Hustoft and Yngve Høyland, quickly made its way to the top of the official radio charts in Norway and became the most played Norwegian song on radio in 2011.

In the autumn of 2011, Frida moved to Oslo to work full-time on her forthcoming album, recording songs in Rainbow Studio and Propeller Studios. Frida writes all of her own lyrics, and has collaborated with Lene Marlin, Simone Larsen, Thomas Kongshavn and Martin Sjølie on the album, in addition to Lars Hustoft.

«I want to write songs that people will recognise parts of themselves in, so it will be a personal album. It is important to me that all the songs come from me and that it’s real», says Frida.
