Tuva started singing and making music in 2011. She really wanted a band, but didn't dare to sing outside her bedroom. Amongst her friends, she joked about calling herself Tuvaband. Moving to Oslo in 2013, she finally sung on a duet with the singer of the band Mischa Non Penguin/I See Horses, while Simon played guitar.
Eventually Tuva asked Simon to play guitar in Tuvaband, as Tuva played guitar only to create songs. The duo were formed in 2014, and built up a catalogue of songs whilst playing intimate shows and small festivals across Norway. Towards the end of 2016 they self-released their debut double single “Unknown/Running”.
1st of November 2017 they will release their debut EP.
