Ane Brun

After winning over stateside critics and fans with her US debut A Temporary Dive in 2006, Ane Brun returns to the US for a string of tour dates this fall. The singer, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist, started her indie label DetErMine Records together with The Tiny´s lead singer Ellekari Larsson in 2002, where she released her Scanadvian debut Spending Time with Morgan. In November 2005, she released Duets, an album consisting of 10 duets with 10 different artists including Teitur, Tobias Fröberg, Ron Sexsmith and Syd Matters. Ane’s fifth album and second US release, Changing of the Seasons, will be released this October and it is led by a new video for "The Treehouse Song."

Songwriters who’ve mastered the art of minimalism are not very common. Rarer still, are the people who can live up to the candor and unpredictability of Ani DiFranco or Nick Drake. However, Brun does it with ease and a massive scoop of Scandinavian surrealism. Find out for yourself in October.

Well, actually, Ane Brun is norwegian and not swedish. But I suppose there are enough reasons to love Sweden anyhow.

Her MySpace says Sweden and her bio says Norwegian. I guess I unconsciously sided with Sweden. Either way - brilliant.
