Silver Lining (NOR)





Bringing together members of two prominent Norwegian acts, The Northern Belle and Louien, folky americana quartet Silver Lining have at times been dubbed a super group in their native country. Consisting of four instrumentalists, three of them also singer-songwriters, Silver Lining debuted with the low-key and mellow Heart and Mind Alike in 2018. The album was well received and reached a wide audience, thanks to millions of streams.  The members came together for a Gillian Welch tribute show in 2015. They discovered that this project had potential outside of playing cover songs, and quickly started rehearsing and writing.

The angelic voices of Stine Andreassen and Live Miranda Solberg fit perfectly with the rougher, dylanesque voice of Halvor Falck Johansen. The three singers’ acoustic guitar interplay is interwoven with and elevated by Bjørnar Ekse Brandseth’s electric guitars, pedal steel and dobro. The new album Go Out Nowhere (2022) introduces a broader americana sound, reminiscent of Aaron Lee Tasjan, Erin Rae or The Band.
