With courage, creativity and love of improvisation and experimentation 

 

FALKEVIK combines the Nordic jazz tradition with quirky and elegant pop melodies that will linger in your ear. Vocalist and pianist Julie Falkevik Tungevåg – whose clear and unique voice instantly mesmerises the listener – playfully explores the soundscapes of the piano by applying live electronics and effects, which, in turn, provides a distinctive electronic vibe.

 

They create a fascinating musical sphere in which they confidently merge the singer-songwriter style with lyrical instrument passages, riff-based solos and the flexibility of a jazz trio, demonstrating versatility and thrilling inventiveness.

 

"Norway's Falkevik has composed one of the most beautiful and motivating pieces of music I've

heard so far this year"

// Everything is noise //


 
The members of Falkevik have a well-established foothold as skilled musicians in the Norwegian jazz scene. Falkevik released the internationally critically acclaimed debut album “Louder Than I’m Used To” in 2018, followed by a massive tour in Norway and Germany. The trio will be releasing several singles and a new album in 2021.
