Karoline Krüger biography

Karoline Krüger is to be found in the "Land-of-in-between". She has, first and foremost, since her debut in her teens nearly two decades ago, firmly established herself in the flora of Norwegian performing artists, as an exciting and gifted performer and composer. One of her hallmarks has always been her willingness to seek out new forms of expression - the theatre being one of them. In the course of the years Karoline Krüger has released six solo albums and has been featured on numerous others. Her debut album, "Fasetter" (Facets) was released in 1988. The same year the soundtrack song "You call it Love", hit charts worldwide. But instead of pursuing an international pop-career, she turned home to University studies and compository work. The triology of the "Jacob..s Mass", for which she wrote the music, have since the first performance in Oslo in 2000, been performed and broadcasted in several Scandinavian countries. Her latest solo CD "De to Stemmer" (The Two Voices), based on lyrics by Norwegian poet André Bjerke, received exellent reviews and was also nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Award 2005. The last years, Karoline has enjoyed success on the theatrical stage: a major role in the critically acclaimed modern cabaret version of Ibsens "Peer Gynt" has taken her amongst others to Barcelona, Lisboa, Hamburg and New York. And the autumn of - 07 her musical show "Da Hana møtte Henne" ( When He met Her) with Norwegian actor Espen Hana sold out all of the performances at Rogaland Theater, Stavanger. Although truly enjoying both her compositary and theatrical work; it is as a concert performer Karoline has made her mark. Whether the form it takes is simple and bequiling or dramatically melodious, it is always interwoven with the narrative. The music and the written or spoken word forming a whole. This statement is clearly verified by the unique atmosphere she creates in her stage performances. Karoline now lives in Bergen, Norway with her husband, performing artist Sigvart Dagsland and their two daughters.
