Mirja Klippel & Alex Jonsson

Experience raw and other-worldly sounds from the Finnish alternative folk musician Mirja Klippel.

With a gripping voice, a rich sound universe and a sense for
song-writing that connects deeply personal experiences with imagery from
the wild Nordic nature, the Finnish songwriter, singer and
multi-instrumentalist Mirja Klippel is a remarkable talent on the
alternative folk music scene. Already her debut EP Lift Your Lion (2016)
brought the Copenhagen-based musician a Danish Music Award Folk as
Songwriter of the Year. Since then, she has toured extensively in
Europe, Russia and the North Atlantic, followed by the release of the
critically acclaimed full-length album River of Silver in 2018.

With her latest album, Slow Coming Alive, Klippel once again adds new nuances to
her expansive and poetic folk universe and continues to explore the
width of her songwriting. Supported by her fellow musician Alex Jønsson
and changing guests, such as the awarded string trio Vesselil, she draws
the audience into a fresh and atmospheric universe, where personal
experiences open up psychological depths, and intimate spaces yield
access to raw and wild inner landscapes.
