Born Hilde Skaar from the small west coast island Stord in Norway, surrounded by fjords, forests, and mountains, she began writing music and playing guitar at a very young age. On this little island, she grew up experiencing total freedom and the feeling of belonging somewhere. Very attached to the astonishing and sometimes brutal nature around her, she has realized that the nature inside and the one surrounding her can be similar sometimes. Just like you can experience all four seasons in one day if you travel to the west coast of Norway, she can relate to feeling exuberantly lively and cheerful one minute and almost explosively emotional the next. In these oscillations, friction arises and often results in a flood of inspiration and creativity, which sources her urge to write music.
SKAAR’s incredible talent as an artist, but also a songwriter, resulted in a record deal with Warner Music at the age of 19. A couple of years later she has released three singles - “24”, “Wicked Rhythm” and “Higher Ground” - which have all been A-listed on Norway’s biggest radio stations.
This autumn she will be releasing her powerful single “Five Times”, leading up to her debut EP which is set to be released February 2020.
