In March 2008 Ingrid Olava released her debut album, Juliet’s Wishes, to both commercial and critical acclaim. It quickly reached Gold status in her native Norway and garnered three Norwegian Grammy nominations, for Best New Artist, Female Artist of the Year and Best Song. In February 2010 she followed up that success with her sophomore effort, The Guest, released on her own Daring Viola label through Universal. The album reached No.2 on the Norwegian album chart, No.1 on iTunes and Ingrid received the Best Female award at the 2011 Norwegian Grammys. She released the Please Welcome EP in November 2010 as her first international release, receiving a warm reception from European media including NME.com, Sunday TimesCulture, Music Week and Drowned in Sound. For the past three years Ingrid has recorded film soundtracks and made her mark as an actress, with prominent roles in movies and TV series such as “Oslo,” “31 August” and “Lily Hammer” – but now she returns with her third album, Summer House, a diverse, eclectic effort featuring songs that are pure pop, others that are stripped-down ballads, a few with programmed beats and a lot with a great big layered synth sound.
