Growing up surrounded by the stunning scenery of the island of Stord, surrounded by fjords, forests and mountains, Hilde Skaar began writing and playing guitar at a very young age. It was an attitude fueled by her passion for music, from her early love for Coldplay and Foo Fighters to discovering the empowerment and vulnerability of Banks. Three years after releasing her debut single, she’s now primed for a glowing future.
After a great success with her debut EP; “The Other side of waiting” in 2020, she has been nominated twice for the Norwegian Grammy-equivalent; ́Spellemannsprisen ́ in the categories ́Breakthrough artist of the year ́, and ́Pop artist of the year ́.
“This EP is bang of an introductory,” she states. “It represents me as a person and an artist. It’s impossible to separate those two things.” A quote that truly illustrates SKAAR as an artist. Her music is characterized by her being straight forward and honest about highs and lows in her life, calling things out for what they are, and wearing her heart on her sleeve.
