Norwegian singer-songwriter Elimarit invites you on an emotional journey of introspection and stillness. The warmth and delicacy of her cinematic, Scandinavian dream folk is balanced by a considered use of electronic elements. Her songs have a dark intensity that conjures traditional folklore as well as contemporary Nordic noir.
Through her work with London Contemporary Voices (LCV), Elimarit’s voice has caught the attention of Elbow, Tom Chaplin (Keane), Imogen Heap and Felix Buxton (Basement Jaxx). She has performed with bands and artists such as Amber Run, The Staves, Laura Mvula, Lucy Rose and Sam Brookes.
Her vocals appear on Elbow’s UK number 1 album ‘Little Fictions’ as well as Imogen Heap’s award-winning soundtrack to West End production ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’. With LCV she performed at Abbey Road studio 1 with Katie Melua, Rick Astley and Guy Garvey for BBC Radio 2’s ‘The Beatles Orchestrated’.
Elimarit has lent her music skills to several projects and charitable causes over the years, notably as resident artist on an Arts Council funded project with Living Words Arts. The project saw her write and arrange a song based on the words of John Offen, a man living with advanced dementia. The song, ‘Funny old world, innit’, was recorded and released, through the generous support of Nitin Sawhney and LCV, and was performed live by LCV at Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in November 2018.
Elimarit fittingly released her EP ‘Silences’, with its themes of loss, longing and renewed hope, during a time of social distancing and uncertainty. ‘Silences’ is produced by Anil Sebastian (Guy Sigsworth, Imogen Heap, Manu Delago) and engineered, mixed and mastered by Cherif Hashizume (Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins, David Byrne).
