Alida grew up on a hill, outside Stavanger on the west coast of Norway, with big dreams of performing and writing songs for a living. At the age of nine she began singing into a tape recorder and listening to herself for fun.
- I would spend hours everyday alone in my room just imitating artists I liked and singing some of the things I made.
It wasn't until she was eleven that anyone heard her potential. After performing at a school talent show she received acclaim from her fellow students and teachers inspiring her to go on to a music high school. She has been writing, singing and playing piano ever since. <br>
