Tuvaband is the solo project of Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser. Tuva is a Norwegian singer, songwriter and producer from Norway, currently based in Berlin.
"I started making music some years ago while studying child welfare. While playing with two guys I was studying with, I thought we were a band, but realised that this thing we were doing was called jamming. From then on, while making music privately in my room I called myself ‘Tuvaband’ as a joke amongst friends. After putting out some music on Soundcloud I met the guitarist, Simon Would, who started playing guitar in Tuvaband. We released our first debut single on Spotify and other platforms in autumn 2016, and after a few more singles we released our debut EP autumn 2017.
After the release of the debut EP Tuvaband is back to being my solo project. I will release my debut album in September 2018. Most of the songs from the debut album consists of songs built around 1st drafts and has a more raw and unpolished sound than earlier. I have produced both the songs and the sound, and the songs/mixes are adjusted and mastered by Philip Shaw Bova, which has also mastered two of @Feist 's albums (I’m a fan).
Playing live, Tuvaband is actually a real band. I play with two more musicians; a guitarist and Håkon Brunborg Kjenstad, which has been part of the live set since summer 2017, playing both viola, synth and additional guitar."
