I always like to try new music, and after trying Lisa Ekdahl’s 2014 album “Look to Your Own Heart”, I bought her 2009 album “give me that slow knowing smile“. Such a sweet voice.

Listening to two new artists at the moment, going along with my new found interest in Nordic music. First off is Lisa Ekdahl, a Swedish singer with a incredibly soft, soothing voice.

You name it. Great vocals, love the album.
If you like the TV series Vikings, you may also like the theme song to the series, performed by Swedish musician Fever Ray (also known as Karin Elisabeth Dreijer). The theme song is If I Had a Heart, but the whole album is quiet brilliant.
