Live Music: Susanna K Wallumrod


Live Music

Susanna K Wallumrod + support from Trestle Records (Colonel Acland & Lord Sydney + more TBC)


Thursday 12 July / 7pm / Free


Susanna K Wallumrod (born in 1979) grew up as the youngest child in her family, with sisters and brothers all singing and playing an instrument. She began singing from the age of three, started to take piano-lessons  a few years later, and joined the children´s choir in the local church; music has followed her throughout life and in common with her two brothers she has ended up making music for a living.


After years of studying music and working by herself and with others in longer and shorter lasting projects and bands, she started her duo Susanna And The Magical Orchestra with keyboard-player Morten Qvenild in 2000. The duo started working with other people's songs, like Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen and Jolene by Dolly Parton, and after a while they began writing their own music. The duo's first album, List Of Lights And Buoys,  was released in 2004,  and made together with producers Andreas Mjoes and Deathprod. Described as "a magical debut" and "a stunning piece of work", the album was highly acclaimed in press all over Europe and the US, and Susanna And The Magical Orchestra started to travel beyond Norway with their music, pllaying concerts in Japan and Europe.  The duo are now well established amongst music lovers, having released a second album Melody Mountain with covers of AC/DC, Kiss and Scott Walker among others.
