19-year-old Norwegian singer Aurora Aksnes aka AURORA taught herself how to play the piano when she was only 6 years old and started writing her first own songs at 10. Only three years later she had her very first performance. She grew up listening to Dylan, Cohen and Cash and always loved their ability to tell stories through music. Through these classic writers she made herself a promise to not only write happy ending stories and eternal love, but about real stories.
She has announced her debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend. It's scheduled for release on 11th March via Decca/Petroleum/Glassnote Records.
"It is so much more satisfying to make an album than one song at a time," says Aksnes in a press release. "One song is only a chapter and the album is the book. I’m very excited to release this one, my first, and I’m already starting to plan my second. This album is the first of many, and it’s been a journey making it."
