Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen is a rare and wonderful combination, equal parts musician, poet and storyteller. This enjoyable Scandinavian lady is hailed by Norwegian press as "three parts Monroe and one part Holiday". Hilde Louise's poetry is hypnotic. Her instrumental arrangements are like dark, expencive chocolate - rich, sweet-tasting, and very satisfying, while leaving you wanting more!" Skoot Larsson

Accompanied by some of the contry's hottest jazz musicians, Hilde Louise has released 8 solo albums, and toured Norway and Scandinavia in several rounds since 2002.

LIVE REVIEW FROM TROMSØ: Hilde Louise Orchestra at Tromsø Kulturhus

In 2010, her song «Undeceivable» was ranked among the finalists in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). She fronted the Swedish jazz/electronica duo KOOP on their last tour of USA, Asia and Europe, and is the co-writer and vocalist on their single «Strange Love» (Atlantic Records/Playground).

 
"The transfixing stage presence of sultry Norwegian vocalist Hilde Louise Asbjornsen stole the show. Her smoky, note-perfect rendition of Strangelove was so close to the record, we wondered if she was pulling a Britney."  Now Magazine, Toronto

Her first of the kind, 'Round About Christmas, received splendid reviews from a unison Norwegian press and was sold out by Christmas Eve.

Hilde Louise also has an awarded carreer as a stage actress and cabaret artist. She spent the winter of 2014 playing Ms. Adelaide in the success musical "Guys and Dolls" at Oslo Nye Teater. Review in English.

The album "Sweet Morning Music" will be released autumn 2014 in Norway and Germany on Grappa Musikkforlag.


 

"Det er som om noe av Billie Holiday har tatt bolig i henne. Hun er forføreren som presser deg litt lenger enn fornuften tilsier." Svein Andersen, Aftenposten

"..mørk, forførerisk eleganse og skjev, nærmest bohemsk, livsnyteri i en og samme gavepakke." Hardware.no

Jazz chanteuse, låtskriver og scenekatt Hilde Louise har gitt ut 8 kritikerroste album i jazzens grenseland. Hun har turnert landet i flere omganger både med eget band og i revy-duoen Asbjørnsen & Joh. og vunnet Komiprisen “Beste Kvinnelige Artist" for rollen som “Ulla” i “ The Producers” på Oslo Nye Teater. Mange husker henne særlig fra NRK's reality-serie "Maestro", der hun gikk seirende ut av konkurransen om å dirigere Kringkastnings Orkesteret.

Vinteren 2014 gledet hun 40.000 publikummere i musikalen "Guys and Dolls" på Oslo Nye Teater, sammen med Andrea Brein Hovig, Kåre Conradi og Hans Marius Mittet. Les Mona Levins anmeldelse.
