Wolves and Sheep
Imagine if water had a voice and it was guided by the curves and paths of piano acting as its river bed. Inger Nordvik is a Norwegian singer and composer whose musical universe is shaped by her classical background, roots in Norwegian folk music but also by her surroundings growing up in the wild nature of the north that nurtured her musical spirit. Compared already to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, it has been said that her music tends to avoid perfection in a catchy way, defying easy categorisation as it expands into pop, jazz, Nordic folk and improvisation.
Born in the Norwegian city of Harstad, surrounded by mountains and oceans, Inger started playing the piano at the age of six. Her passion for music later inspired her to pursue an education in classical singing, and by the age of 19, she attended the renowned Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo. However, her intuitive understanding of music as well as her interest in pop, soul and jazz, brought her back to where it all started, in front of the piano, improvising and creating melodies.
Whether solo or accompanied by musicians, Inger always takes time to taylor to the fine details in her compositions and performances, watching them grow and slowly take on a life of their own. Soft and intimate at moments and stormy and chaotic at others, her music seeks its roots. Like water flowing to the source, her sweet and crystal clear voice is a beacon in an ocean of words.
