"Writing music has always been my anchor.

A grain of truth and identity in the midst of turmoil."

From the cobblestoned streets of Bergen, to the ocean breeze of Ipanema. Sheila Simmenes presents elegant compositions that playfully and lovingly blends nordic and brazilian folk music, jazz, pop and soul. 

The soundscape is 100% organic and analog, with a hint of vintage sound - while the compositions play with lyrics on local norwegian dialect, english and brazilian portuguese. 

This year, the jazz singer is finally emerging with her first solo-album and a sound that skilfully combines a myriad of musical impulses - manifesting itself in the genre of world music, with the veil of warm yet playful vocals layered on top.

"Hers is a singular voice, managing to be both unique and familiar, her lyrics inventive and heartfelt, her phrasing somehow elastic and incredibly precise, her control seemingly effortless" - Andy Inglis
