Mari Kvien Brunvoll

Molde, Norway

Only one solo performer at 12 Points 2010, and unlike previous editions, it was not a pianist. Though she's yet to finish her graduate studies, Molde born singer Mari Kvien Brunvoll has already created a major ripple of excitement on the Norwegian jazz scene, for she is a genuine original in the spirit of artists like Sidsel Endressen, with a voice that immediately captivates. She's pursuing a singular path that also embraces projects for children and theatre, and her music is a personal expression that straddles jazz, electro pop and accoustic blues. She's not entirely alone on stage, and makes use of loops and pedals, as well as zithers and thumb pianos to add detail to her intimate, soulful soundworld
