Siri Nilsen won the Grappa debutant award in 2008 and in 2009 she released her debut album, "Vi som ser i mørket" to critical acclaim. Aftenposten wrote that she was "an artist who had already found her very own voice. The rumor of her excellence has not been exaggerated."
On her new album she has collaborated with the producer duo Jens Carelius and Øyvind Røsrud Gundersen (Rumble in Rhodos), who both also plays on the album.
Jens is in addition to having great success with his solo career for several years played in the band Blues Run The Game with Siri. Øyvind has previously produced all the boards to Jens Carelius and more recently Hanne Kolstø´s solo album. "I am very happy to have been working with Jens and Øyvind. They are skilled, creative and great guys" says Siri. The sound is generally delicate and translucent - dominated by acoustic string instruments, keyboards and various percussion instruments. - Something that creates plenty of room for vocalist and text intermediary Siri Nilsen.
About the title "Alle snakker sant = Everybody is telling the truth," she says: "The title refers to when your head, heart and stomach are telling you different things, and you agree with what all three are saying."
All the lyrics on "Alle snakker sant" are in Norwegian.
Three years after her breakthrough, Siri Nilsen is releasing her third album, "Skyggebokser" ("Shadow Boxer"). The title refers to recurring themes in her work: the dichotomy of not feeling entirely present in your own life, and the feeling of having to fight against different aspects of yourself, while at the same time being drawn to what is fragile and raw.
