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, and I will release my debut album in 2018. The first song (Horses) from the album, was released 6th of April. 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 big 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."
