"Anne Lorentzen is back and is unfolding her talent again. Såre sinn has become a warm and beautiful record which draws the listener in towards it. Thesongs fall gently on the ear and the production is seductive, almost hypnotic...It is a floaty sound picture in which the listener dreamily sails."




- Anders Grønneberg

Bio

Anne Lorentzen is a norwegian singer-songwriter. She was one of the first norwegian artists to combine the beats-electronica-soundscape with songs in the Norwegian singer-songwritertradion. Her latest album Såre Sinn was declared one of the best norwegian releases in 1999 by the influential fanzine Natt og Dag, while Aftensposten, one of the main newspapers in Norway, labelled Lorentzen as "the female artist of the year".

Anne Lorentzen startet her career as a guitarplayer in a number of unsigned all-female bands located in Bergen, in the the western part of Norway. Later on she startet the duo Ravn which quickly was discovered by the prominent Norwegian singer-songwriter Jonas Fjeld. He produced their first album "Rød Ravn i en blå by" which received a lot of attention in Norway. The norwegian broadcast channel P1 proclaimed Ravn as "the debut of the year", and the record received lots of airplay. I 1997 Anne Lorentzen released her debut as a soloartist, and the song "Kvinne søker kvinne" became a hit on several of the major radiochannels. I 1999 she released her second album, which became a-critics-favorite. The record was described as "Hypnoticand seducing" by Dagbladet, one of the major newspapers in Norway, and most journalists responded with 5 out of 6 stars.

In 2001 the song Mognad (from the Såre sinn-album) was declared Best Norwegian Entry in the songwriter competition Song Expo, The Benelux International Song and Culture festival, and in the summer of 2003 Anne Lorentzen was invited to play at The Chard Festival of Women in Music, by the Daily Telegraph og The Guardian characterized as "One of Europe's top ten musical events" og "One of the national events worth leaving home for".
