We’re delighted to be working with Siv Jakobsen for the first time!

Norwegian singer-songwriter Siv Jakobsen quickly became a favourite of the indie-folk world with her first EP The Lingering. Tours supporting Bear’s Den, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Damien Jurado followed before Jakobsen then truly delivered on that early promise with the arrival of her debut album The Nordic Mellow.  The 10-song collection was a testament to Siv’s bold lyricism and stunning vocal ability, transporting the listener into her world from the very first note.

In 2020 she released her widely-acclaimed sophomore album, A Temporary Soothing, which as well as receiving incredible reviews from the likes of Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine and Under The Radar, was also nominated for a Norwegian grammy, a Spellemann. The vulnerability of her work has gained her many listeners across the world with Jakobsen having accrued 35 million streams to date. She’s spent the last few months supporting the likes of José González, The Lumineers and Susanne Sundfør, and is now preparing to share her latest body of work with the world.

Special guest is Sara Wolff – a Liverpool-based songwriter and musician from Bergen, Norway, writing lyrically focused alt-folk.
