Kaja Gunnufsen is a 25 year old singer songwriter based in Oslo, Norway. Her music is marked by a childhood listening through her father’s old record collection, and artists such as Neil Young have had a strong influence on her musical expression. (She even has a ”Rust Never Sleeps” tattoo on the inside of her wrist).
Her music features delicate Norwegian lyrics reflecting the thoughts of an ostensibly lonely young girl whose stories are wrapped in dreamy piano and soft guitar soundscapes. Kaja manages to capture her audience not only with her innocent characteristic voice and fine melodies, but also through her presence and charm on stage together with her five piece band.
She recorded her first EP during the summer of 2012 (which was released shortly afterwards). The song, ”Hei Sveis”, was recommended by the music streaming service WiMP and became a hit with her generation in Oslo.
2013 began with the signing of a management deal with Brilliance, the release of the beautiful single ”Au”, followed by being chosen as ”Ukas Urørt” by the radio channel P3. After having delivered some impressive off-venue by:Larm shows in 2013, Kaja was booked for two of the biggest festivals in Norway, Slottsfjell and the Øya festival. At the same time her second single, ”Desp”, was listed on P3. This song is now nominated for ”Song Of The year” by the music magazine, Gaffa.
Kaja gives the Norwegian folkpop-genre a new and exciting face (with her different tales from her own and some of her acquaintances’ life in the Norwegian capital). Her music has been given attention outside the boarder with both JaJaJa and Nordic by Nature backing her great talents.
She is currently in studio finishing her debut album together with producer Kenneth Ishak (Heyerdahl). The album is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2014.
