“One of this years strongest album- regardless of genre” - Oppland Arbeiderblad


“It is sensual, fiery, hot and very untraditional. Actually; it's fantastic liberating, and totally wonderful.“ - Hamar Arbeiderblad


“Finally a debutant that really surprises” - Groove.no


“If there is something called natural stage presence: Guro von Germeten has it!”
- Nordsee-Zeitung


"She loves her audience. You can see and hear her amazing joy of playing and singing”
- Mainzer Rhein Zeitung


"She sings songs of longing and broken hope - and still is that the last thing her music throws at the audience, sadness or self pity. For that is Guro von Germeten music just too beautiful.”
- Dachauer Nachrichten


“Norway can promote not only oil and win its electricity from hydropower. Norway can also give rise to vocal and musical virtuoso who give the rest of Europe and other countries a lesson in what all is possible with one voice.”
- Süd Deutsche Zeitung

Bio

Descriebed as Kaizer Orchestras creepy little sister, a female Tom Waits, Kurt Weill’s great grandchild, Kate Bush on Piaf- pills or the woman that brings a blush to Stephen King face: Guro von Germeten, and her little red accordion, stands out as delightfully burlesque with melodic boldness and French Second World War-ambiance. Her music never lacks passion, nor decadence, and her classically trained «crying cat in the night-voice» brings you every song, as was it her last in life; screaming, whispering or just by sounding extremely beautifully, all with a twist of Balkan beats, Circus jazz and a touch of Film noir.

Guro von Germeten has already gotten a name to call for in Norway and northern Europe. Her catalogue of performances contains of festivals such as Oslo World Music Festival, Vienna International Accordion Festival and Slottsfjell, small and big live venues, live performances on Norwegian broadcast and projects with the distinguished Concerts Norway:

“A word collector with distinct language: Norway can promote not only oil and win its electricity from hydropower. Norway can also give rise to vocal and musical virtuoso who give the rest of Europe and other countries a lesson in what all is possible with one voice.”
Süd Deutsche Zeitung

"The Norwegian with the bitter sweet songs: She sings songs of longing and broken hope - and still is that the last thing her music throws at the audience, sadness or self pity. For that is Guro von Germeten music just too beautiful.”
