A child of music, Danish songstress Naja Rosa Koppel was born into a family of many songs and stories. Her mother and father, Annisette and Thomas Koppel, lead members and founders of the legendary Danish rock group The Savage Rose took her on the road before she was even born. Growing up in the south harbor of Copenhagen, Koppel was singing and writing songs from an early age and went on to sing background vocals in her parents’ group for almost a decade. As a part of The Savage Rose she also landed two of her own compositions on their 2008 Danish Music Award-nominated release, Universal Daughter and wrapped a European tour with the band in the fall of 2008.
In 2009 Koppel finished her debut album, NAJA ROSA, with all songs written and composed by her, in a little analog Copenhagen studio. The record was mixed by renowned producer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Nada Surf, Apples in Stereo) at his Trout Studio in Brooklyn.
The sound may be reminiscent of beatnik rock and blues from the 50s through the 70s, but there is also a great depth to the album’s sound. Similar to the moodiness of a Tarantino soundtrack, Koppel’s vocals are deep, soulful and pure. Full of life and often with a wink of humor, her strong, melodic songs can take you from a rocking Saturday night to a bluesy Sunday afternoon.
