Biography

Oslo, Norway (1987 – present)

Sidsel Endresen (born June 19, 1952) is a Norwegian singer from Oslo, Norway. She is one of those creative vocal artists who are extremely difficult to describe properly.

Her music often has some backing, some elements, some elements, some non-mainstream-pop elements, and an flavour but doesn’t fall into the styles of music usually called experimental. She has a deep, haunting voice and she sings music full of ripples of sound, connotation, and allusion.

Sidsel Endresen has been active in the Norwegian music scene since the early 80’s. All the time she had been leaping between genres generating a profile spanning from multimedia performances to symphonic music. She have soloed with choir, collaborated with poets, but all the time with her own voice as instrument. Her use of the voice has inspired several of the young Norwegian jazz artists.

She first got noticed in the eighties as part of the Jon Eberson Group (1981-1987), with whom she recorded five albums and won two Norwegian Grammy Awards.

In 1989 Sidsel signed to the German label ECM Records and released two solo CDs - So I Write (1990) and Exile (1994) which won her much critical acclaim internationally.

During the years Endresen has recorded with many musicians, but she is best known for her solo work and her on-going collaboration with keyboard player and head of Jazzland Records Bugge Wesseltoft.
