Sigrid – Norwegian singer, songwriter
Sigrid is a singer, painter, songwriter, and dancer. Her full name is Sigrid Solbakk Raabe. She was born in a small Norwegian town Alesund on 5 September 1996. Her parents weren’t artists. However, all of Sigrid’s siblings work in the music industry. When they were young, the aspiring artist and her sister formed a band called Sala Says Mhyp. As the singer later revealed in one of her interviews, the sisters named the band after their diseased cat. Even though the girls were talented, the band didn’t become popular. Sigrid went on to a solo career inspired by such artists as Joni Mitchell, Adele, and Neil Young.
In 2013, Sigrid began her career by releasing a debut single “Sun”. It helped her become popular on the local level. The success was cemented after Sigrid’s performance at Øyafestivalen music festival. The number of fans increased after the release of her new song “Two Fish.”
In 2014, the singer presented a new non-album single “Known You Forever". It didn’t become a hit, but the fans appreciated the effort. At the same time, the artist signed a contact with a Norwegian label Petroleum Records. Two years later, she changed her mind.
