Well, just as many other musicians, I lost my gigs for the spring and the summer.. so here's what I did instead:

- First I changed carreer and became my kids teacher when the schools closed down

- Then when they reopened I concentrated on writing music and started some nice recording projects.

-In the middle of that me and my boyfriend bought a house and started moving and renovating so I had to take a break from the projects


At the moment I'm still working long days with the house but in August I will finally have my first gig after this looooooooong break :D

Here's the facebook event for it!


Me and my boyfriend are also getting married in our garden in August so fingers crossed for sunshine and warm weather!! :) <3


After that I can get back to my recording projects and planning gigs for next spring (unless there's a second wave of covid..) ..so yeah.. no risk getting bored any time soon lol

This mess will at some point become my new very very very nice and very very very huge work space!!! :D :D :D (it's bigger than it looks in the picture I promise :P)


Over and out!

What else can you do in these times but try to hold on to your sense of humor (yes, even bad humor!) In case you didn't get my joke then look up a band called "The Knack".

I'm not gonna talk about all the negative sides of Covid-19 like people dying, canceled gigs, entire societies shutting down etc cause we're probably all really fed up with bad news by now.

So to try to find a little light in the darkness here's my list of a few positive effects on my life:


- More time with my kids

- People supporting eachother

- Lots of new jokes about toilet paper

- Finally have time to clean the appartment

- More time spent in nature (at least for the time being here in Finland!)


Can YOU think of anything positive? :)


Stay safe and positive folks!

A new decade is here and what better way to start it than with a one-year gran! (thank you Svenska Kulturfonden!)

Lots of exciting stuff will happen this year but first let's look at a few pics from the Christmas Jazz Tour :)


So what's happening in the dazzling 20's you ask? Oh well it's gonna be a whole lotta Ginger Sisters to begin with. I just made a brand new website yesterday, check it out! :D

gingersistersmusic.com

We'll be doing a few gigs in Sweden in april so very excited about that!


Another fun project this spring is a tribute to Julie London that I will do together with swedish guitarist Erik Söderlind and bassplayer Zacharias Holmkvist in March.

It's been 20 years since singer, actress and pin-up model Julie London passed away and 65 years since the release of her first album "Julie Is Her name". Good enough reason, I thought, to celebrate the very talented but often overlooked pop and jazz singer who released 32 albums during the 1950's and -60's.


I'm also currently working on booking a Norway tour for my quartet. The first step was to go through all the video material from my releasetour 2018 and make some promo material.

The result is three videos:



More about the Norway tour at a later point!


Since life isn't all about work I'm gonna squeze in lots of dancing, hiking and hopefully some skiing (we finally got snow yay!! :D) as well as my newest hobby swimming this spring.

And I will even treat myself with a warm holiday in Gran Canaria in March, can't wait!! :D




Well that's all for now.

Have a glamorous 2020!!
