Frida Ånnevik has a voice that makes you stop for a while. Already with her debut album “Visible Heartbeat” it became clear that Frida is unusually strong both as a lyricist and a songwriter.
Frida has so far been nominated for Spellemann seven times, and taken home three awards. She describes her music as “pop in an open landscape”, with references to jazz, song, folk music and soul. Frida’s music and voice have also aroused the interest of Simen Kiil Halvorsen and Bjergsted Jazz Ensemble, and following the tradition, the ensemble is challenged to interact with exciting artists. Bjergsted Jazzensemble has previously played with greats such as Valkyrien Allstar, Ralph Towner, John Scofield and Bugge Wesseltoft to name a few. Maijazz is looking forward to greet Bjergsted Jazz Ensemble and Frida Ånnevik. Frida Ånnevik will also perform at the opening concert – A tribute to Joni Mitchell.
