Aurora Aksnes is a 17 year old girl from Bergen, Norway. She has been playing the piano since she was 6 years old, and is entirely self taught. As you might expect, she’s never payed particular attention to music theory and had already begun to write songs at the tender age of 10. Aurora performed for the first time when she was 13, and struggled somewhat with stage fright. However, with practice and the passage of time, this has subsided and she now loves performing more than anything else in the world. 
Growing up in a musical home, Aurora listened to Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash. She loved the stories these artists told through their music, and thereafter vowed to only write stories of real significance. Aurora does not want to write songs with the quintessential beginning, middle, and predictably happy ending. She strives to write music that can inspire people, through idiosyncratic tales of struggle, love, and all that lies in between. 
When Aurora isn’t writing and performing, she enjoys the culinary arts and literature. At a young age, Aurora derived inspiration from the books she had read to write her own stories. She would later go on to write music to those stories, and this transcends her lyrics from ordinary song writing to a higher plane of imaginative and creative compositions.
Aurora has recently been working on new recordings in the studio; every time she lays down a new track she feels ever closer to the dreams she had for her career at the young age of 10. Aurora desperately wants to share her stories with the world, and is determined to one day be a professional musician equipped to do so.
