My name is Solveig Borgen and I am a singer from Norway. I have been living in Amsterdam for 9 years and found a great way to use my musicality with wonderful musicians and beautiful music. Besides performing with Solveig Sings – Scandinavian atmospheric music with a touch of jazz – I performed with different jazz combo’s in Amsterdam and big bands, such as The Fellows Bigband: http://www.fellowsbigband.nl/ The AMC Bigband: http://www.amcbigband.nl/ and The Jazz Warriors: http://jazzwarriors.nl/. While living in Amsterdam I worked closely with The Norwegian Seaman’s Church and the Scandinavian Embassies: http://www.maxvanderstoelaward.com/winners/2011 I also taught singers and actors and gave workshops.
I live in Oslo since September 2015 and happy to continue my musical journey here. I perform with different Norwegian jazz combo’ such as: Solveig Sings Jazz på Lambertseter gård December, February and March: http://oslosydavisen.no/januar2017F (Se side 12) Føyka Bigband:http://www.foyka.no/ . I am in charge of cultural events at Lambertseter Gård https://lambertsetergaard.no/ . I also work for The Norwegian Pop museum in Oslo since April 2018. I often go back to perform in The Netherlands or bring my Dutch band to Norway. I live now at Jeløy in Moss and will continue singing with bigbands and combos.
