With a gripping voice, a rich sound universe and a sense for songwriting that connects deeply personal experiences with images of wild Nordic nature, the Finnish songwriter and singer, Mirja Klippel, is a remarkable talent on the alternative folk music scene. Already her debut EP ‘Lift Your Lion’ (2016) brought the Denmark-based musician a Danish Music Award as Songwriter of the Year. Since then, she has toured extensively in Europe, Russia and the North Atlantic, and released the critically acclaimed full-length album ‘River of Silver’ in 2018. Her latest album, ‘Slow Coming Alive’, received three Danish Music Awards Roots nominations in 2021. With this album, Klippel adds new nuances to her expansive and poetic folk universe and continues to explore the widths and depths of her songwriting. Supported by the critically acclaimed guitarist Alex Jønsson, she draws the audience into an ethereal and organic universe, where personal experiences open up psychological depths, and intimate spaces yield access to raw and wild inner landscapes.
