When you first start listening to Marit Larsen’s debute album "Under the Surface (2006)," you picture a shy young girl, peeking out from around a corner. You know that you’re only seeing a bit of what she has to offer. The more you listen, the more you realize just how intriguing both Larsen and her music really are. And then you just can’t wait to find out exactly what else she has up her sleeve. Larsen´s second solo album ”The Chase” was released in 2008, full of beautiful and playful music. Marit has created the album with tremendous grace, that comes across both in her songs and in her personality. Larsen makes the crowd feel like they are apart of something special, at every show. The shy, young girl with the great big talent has blossomed into a very rare flower, indeed. In 2009 she was nominated for two Norwegian Grammys, “Female of the year” and “Song of the year”. The single ”If A Song Could Get Me You” was no.1 i Germany for 5 weeks, and sold to gold in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. So did the Album with the same name. Marit toured all around Germany together for 6 weeks doing liveshows in the spring of 2010. The tour was followed up by a 7 week American promo and showcase tour, where she also released her singel through Sony/RCA Jive in March. Marit has just finished an amazing Festival summer. She started in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Norway and ended up in China. Visiting festivals such as Tollwood festival(DE), Midnattsrocken(NO), Lost weekend festival(NO) and Zhenjiang Midi Festival (China). Marit Larsen: Vocal, Piano, Acoustic guitar, Mandolin & Harmonica
