Gjertrud Lunde’s debut album “Hjemklang” is an impressive collection of songs, gently inviting the listener on an atmospheric journey, sharing experiences and impressions of the distance travelled. Her soulful compositions are skilfully wrapped with impressionist sound paintings, just as with groovy beats. Therewith, Gjertrud Lunde creates a musical cosmos, that exceeds artistic, stylistic and national boundaries in an effortless manner. Her timeless music is a sensitive blend of Jazz, Classical, Pop and World Music.
An excellent four-piece band adds a wide range of expression to Gjertrud Lunde’s voice. The Cologne based artist sings her compositions in English, Norwegian, French and Portuguese. Diverse and homogeneous at the same time, “Hjemklang” unfolds its own magic, keeping the quality level up to the very last note. With luminosity, lightness -always accompanied by a live near depth- the album sounds as close and familiar as a good old friend.
