Sigrid Fossan performs country music influenced by her roots in the Nowegian countryside, and her upringing on the family farm in small town Rollag. She writes meaningful lyrics inspired from her own life and her passion for women's rights.
Recording the songs “I Don’t” and “Need No Man” was Sigrid's first professional studio recordings, and they were done in Burbank, Los Angeles. She has since played several concerts and venues like Studentsamfunnet in Ås and Kongsberg Jazzfestival. She was also Rein Alexander and Anita Skorgan’s guest singer at one of their Christmas concerts.
Her newest project (2019) was recording a local folk song called "Numedalssongen". She brought in several traditional local instruments, like the Hardanger fiddle, jaw harp, Kravik lyre and flute. Take a listen to the beautiful song that takes you more than a hundred years back in time to Norway's countryside.
Sigrid's first EP will be launched this summer, and the first single Country Soul was released April 30th. The songs on the upcoming EP songs speak to the soul and bring out our love for (the) country(side). Get ready for music that will set your feelings in motion!
Boots of Norway blog says this about Country Soul:
"The song is beautifully told, and I think whether or not you belong to the countryside, you can feel the longing she is singing about. The song is so special, filled with typical Norwegian "memories", like grandmother's coffee table and lumberjack houses. The Norwegian fiddle really underlines the nationalism to it. Yet again, it's has a true country feeling to it. Sigrids Vocals are beautiful, delicate, and pure, and the English is impeccable.
This is great Norwegian country, and a piece of music Norwegians can be proud of internationally."
