Biography

One could begin with an insight into Linnea Olsson’s musical world with a description of what she has reared from. Paint a picture of a small Coastal Swedish town family of four, four musicians nonetheless. Her resume reads of a manuscript for the trained to aspire towards. All the tools, schools, accolades one could gather to claim themselves as a prepared musical being, following in the path that had been cleared before her. Yes it seems you can already guess what is next for her.

Years touring the world playing bass and cello with the likes of Ane Brun, Frida Hyvönen, and Nina Kinert amongst others. Wherever there was time Linnea filled it with musical collaboration and motion. Until the Fall of 2010 motion slowed. For this time, we are grateful. As this is when Linnea sat down with what she knew, and created something that demands a space in the musical universe. Eleven songs that are now know as the album ¨AH!¨.

Before pressing play on Linnea’s debut album, AH!, we must say we expected a lot from it. What we came away with is something much above my expectations. This record has been on repeat inside my head since the first listen. AH! stirs together longing, bliss, dream, motion and love into one. Each emotion distinct and defined in its own right upon arrival, yet harmonious in the format of one whole album. How could such a learned being create something so uninhibited? All whilst being made with just two incredibly dynamic and character rich elements; her voice and her cello.
