[Love] Anna Järvinen
If I you should listen to one artist that sings in Swedish this year it should be Anna Järvinen. She released her first solo album Jag Fick Feeling in 2007, but I fell in love with Anna years ago when she was one of the singers in Stockholm based pop group Granada.
Anna was born in Finland but moved to Sweden as a child [Finland have big areas with Swedish speaking natives, a heritage from the day when Sweden incorporated most of Scandinavia]. She has always been a creative person and went to art school and still paints regularly between recordings. Both of her albums have been realsed by Häpna and have been great success storeys for the small label. When creativity is a natural force it can be this great!
Earlier this year she released her second album Man Var Bland Molnen, a step up from the first one, even if you didn't think it was possible. Her delicate voice signals both softness and strong will when she delivers wonderful Swedish lyrics. Enjoy some of her music from the new album, recorded by PSL here. Im sure we can expect more wonderful music from Anna in the future :)
Anna is doing live shows in Sweden and Finland this spring/summer. Check out her Myspace for more information about when and where!
