Being considered an outsider in a small Swedish village and years spent in a Missionary school in Japan made her want for something bigger. By 15 she moved away to find her home in music.
After studying at Stockholm Music Conservatory, a Norwegian poet brought her to Norway where she started her pop career. She won a few Grammys, moved to London to write songs and work as a model. But her heart was always in the music. After 5 albums and collabs like ”Tokyo By Night” for Hook’n’Sling and Axwell, Karin returned to the village of her youth, buying the church where she first sang in front of an audience as a child. She turned the church into a combined studio and home together with her husband, front man of the Norwegian rock band Årabrot.
We can sense the influence of Scott Walker, Massive Attack and Nico in her most recent work but the style of music is Karin’s way of using different elements to tell her stories. What defines her the most though, is her ability to touch people with who she is and what she stands for.
