In collaboration with Sony/ATV Scandinavia, Waterfall Music has signed an exclusive worldwide writer’s deal with Norwegian singer/songwriter Ingrid Olava.
Ingrid’s debut album “Juliet’s Wish”, a top 5 chart entry and two top 20 singles was released in 2008 and sold gold in Norway. Her last album “The Guest” was released in February 2010 by Universal on her own label Daring Viola and entered at to # 2 in the Norwegian album chart and stayed for over 2 months. Ingrid has won several awards and scholarships over the last year including the By:Larm Statoil Stipend, and has just released her first International release with the “Please Welcome EP” in the UK. Ingrid is also confirmed for Eurosonic in January 2011.
Ingrid is a contemporary singer/songwriter, born and raised in Oslo, Norway.
Jonathan Rice, Ingrid’s UK based manager says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Sony ATV / Waterfall, and looking forward to forming a successful team with Kai, Jonas and all the team as we roll out Ingrid’s music internationally, and build on the success we are starting to get in the UK”.
Jonas Holst, Sony/ATV Music Publishing Scandinavia A&R: I’ve had the fortune to seen Ingrid several times over the last couple of years and been familiar with her work and her music since the debut album. She’s one of a kind! A few weeks back I went to a small and intimate concert at a sold out Dramaten’s Lejonkulan in Stockholm with only 60 people in the audience and I think it might have been one of the highlights this year!
Kai Robøle, Waterfall continues: We think Ingrid has great potential and we want to help her discover how far she can go. We look forward to what lies ahead and can’t wait to collaborate on new creative endeavours.
