A bona fide national treasure in her home country and ever broadening global fan base – Astrid S has gained over 1 billion streams with hit songs such as “Hurts So Good”, “Think Before I Talk” and “Such A Boy”.The journey for Astrid S towards superstardom is one of escape and destiny.
She was born in the tiny Norwegian hamlet of Berkåk. ‘In the heart of Norway,’ she says, ‘quite literally.’ Music was her first love, soccer her second. She dropped out of a football school to enter Norwegian Idol at 16 and promptly earned her fist indigenous top 10 hit, ‘Shattered’. She signed to Sony ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter that year. Since, Astrid has been honing her brilliant ear for a pop chorus and identifiable, genre-bending lyrics. Astrid S recalls exactly what pop music made her feel like as a young girl in a small town. ‘The moment I put a Discman on I was in another world. It was magical.’ Now she is ready to translate that early metamorphosis for her own fans. ‘To give them a world to get lost in as well.’ She is ready to colonise pop music with her own indefatigable energy. ‘Now I feel ready to fly.’
