Norwegian singer Silje Nergaard had an impressive career as a pop artist behind before they ventured to the jazz terrain. After they had made it in the early nineties with songs like "Tell Me Where You're Going" in the Scandinavian Favourites well as in the British Top 40, she ventured a decade later a new start as a jazz artist, which, strictly speaking, a return represented to her musical roots. Since then it belongs alongside veteran interior as Sidsel Endresen and young ladies like Rebekka Bakken and Torun Eriksen to the main voices of the far north.
As a young girl sang the June 19 Born in 1966 Silje Nergaard, who grew up in the small town of Hamar, First in school bands. As interest in local artists in Scandinavia because of limited resources is comparatively high, regional broadcasters were quickly aware of them. Nergaard was just 16 years old when she got the opportunity to frolic at the renowned Molde_Jazz_Festival backstage area It was an event that proved to be a happy coincidence for the young singer. In retrospect, it can hardly believe it himself: "I was on the ladies' room before the mirror and humming to myself Someone suddenly beside me said:. '! That's great you have to sing on stage' I nodded and thought it was a joke. A few minutes later I found myself at the microphone and jammed two songs with the band of Jaco Pastorius. And the next day I suddenly saw pictures of me in the newspapers. Journalists About Wolfschlugen formally, to me to praise as a new vocal talent. Before I knew it, I was a star. "
The Molde_Festival is a major hub for Scandinavian musicians and so several scouts were equal attention to the young artist. Nevertheless, she was not able to get a record deal in Oslo. So Silje tried after several false starts in Oslo your luck in London. They Presented on an opportunistic guitarist Pat Metheny a cassette with the first raw version of their song "Tell Me Where You're Going". Metheny liked what he was hearing, and brought Silje with Richard Niles together, which they took under Contract at his label Lifetime Records (EMI). In 1990, she debuted with a pop single version of "Tell Me Where You're Going". On the guitar it easy for them none other than Pat Metheny. In the following years Silje living temporarily in London, where it holds the three albums "Tell Me Where You're Going" (1990), "Silje" (1991) and "Cow On The Highway" (1993) on. With various single releases it lands both in the UK and in Japan in the pop charts. Her second album "Silje" includes a duet with the A-ha singer Morten Harket. Only in 1994 returned Silje final to Norway and took fOr the label Kirkelig Kulturverksted two albums in their native language on: "Brevet" (1995) and "hjemmefra" (1996).
Silje Nergaard went up to her career with a lot of enthusiasm. Over time, however, the events resemble began. The artist was part of a working machine and from the enthusiasm was routine. So they began to look for alternatives. "It must have been around 1996, when I did not know quite what I now wanted to move on. I had reasonably successful with my Popjazz_Platten. But then I became pregnant and was forced to take back the pace a bit. And so I came back to sit down and me about my future to worry. Since I had originally started with jazz, it was natural for me to return to this point. " The album "Port Of Call" (2000) was therefore a second chance again to try with a jazzy repertoire of original compositions and standards of Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and Co.. At its "Pop-past" finally remembered even cover versions of songs from the pens of Sting and Paul Simon. Nergaard had learned and allowed some tomboyish mannerisms previous years in favor of moods à la Rickie Lee Jones and Joni Mitchell behind.
The re-entry succeeded, the press praised the ease and nonchalance with which Nergaard set to work, and people in the audience and record store liked the album. Nergaard felt encouraged and went their way further, first with "At First Light" (2001), then with "Night Watch" (2003). With two albums Silje lands each directly after the publication of No. 1 on the Norwegian sales charts. In 2004, it is named in her home for "Musician of the Year". A concert in Cologne Gloria Theater in May 2005 she left for the DVD "Live in Silje Nergaard KÖln" record.
Four years after the "Night Watch" is Silje Nergaard announced in February 2007, finally with a new studio album back. The time needed, among other things, their band to regroup, as the Tord Gustavsen Trio, which she had been "Port Of Call" (2000) regularly accompanied, had now taken their own career paths. But the personnel reshuffle has Silje anything but harm, they allowed her to "Darkness Out Of blue" (the title of the new album) forging new musical territory: "It has been a very inspiring project," says Silje Nergaard.
