EVOCATIVE INDIE FOLK FROM NORWAY VIA MONTREAL
MARTHE HALVORSEN is a Montreal based Norwegian artist, songwriter and producer who weaves together dreamy evocative Indie Folk Music. Her debut album All is in the Seed was released in 2018, receiving great acclaim around the world. Several of the songs from her album made it on to Norwegian National Radio as well as CBC Radio in Canada. With a unique sincerity in her voice Marthe Halvorsen has a special ability to touch something deep inside the listener.
Having grown up in Arctic Norway, nature has always been an important source of inspiration in her music. The spaciousness and the raw unpolished landscapes of the north can be traced in her sense of songwriting and taste in music production. With a love for a minimalistic and an unpolished sound, Marthe seeks to write songs that carry an intention and that comes from an authentic place within herself. Emerging out of the thriving music scene of Montreal, Marthe Halvorsen is currently in the process of finishing her sophomore album, to be released later this year. On her new album the Norwegian artist has been diving deeper into the producer role, crafting and perfecting her very own characteristic sound.
Since the release of her debut album, Halvorsen has performed a series of concerts in both Norway and Canada, and played for festivals such as: Pop Montreal, Mundial Montreal, Festival FAR, Nordic Bridges, Festival FIKA(S), Festival des traditions du monde de Sherbrooke and many more.
