Stine Janvin Motland - Motsol

Will you please keep your ears and eyes open for the Norwegian singer (or more vocal artist I guess) Stine Janvin Motland? I heard her again Tuesday evening, performing a fantastic solo set at the Landmark club in Bergen. No words were used, but still stories were told and the sound effects were unbelievable. I swear I thought it was raining around her for a while. (Bergen is a rainy City, but Landmark is pretty dry).

Stine Janvin Motland and Ståle Liavik Solberg have joined forces for several years in the voice-drum-duo Motsol, and they recently released a new album with a little help from several friends, as S/S Motsol. "Parallel Pleasures" is out on Creative Sources (2011), with Motland, Solberg and the extras: Eivind Lønning (tp), Klaus Ellerhusen Holm (as, clar), Hild Sofie Tafjord (French horn), Børre Mølstad (tuba), Nils Henrik Asheim (p) and Per Zanussi (b).
Sounds great!
