Hege Brynildsen :: When My Man Comes To Town

by

HegeOm met de deur in huis te vallen: When My Man Comes To Town, de derde CD van de Noorse singer/songwriter Hege Brynildsen, is niets meer of minder dan een meesterwerk. Nog steeds zijn de belangrijkste invloeden, Iris Dement en Emmylou Harris, duidelijk hoorbaar, maar hier heeft ze haar eigen stem gevonden. Prachtliedjes, geworteld in gospel en country, en zo gezongen dat het kippenvel bijna constant over je rug loopt. When My Man Comes To Town kookt over van de, soms donkere, emoties. Nu al kandidaat voor de top 10 van beste CD’s van 2016.

Singer/songwriter Hege Brynildsen was born into music. Her father, Tor Brynildsen, was one of the first who sang rock´n´roll in Norway in the mid fifties. In fact, Tor was so early at it, that there was no one who could back him up when he did his first concerts, the problem was solved with Tor just singing on top of records. Thus, initially Elvis Presley was actually Tor´s back up singer!
Later in his career Tor brought in Hege to do duets with him, she herself did her first singing in church school, where so called «movement songs» made a profound impression on her. Echoes of these practices to be seen in Hege´s very special stage performances today.
