“I was entranced by her voice and her ability to use silences or pauses so effectively.”
Says Norman B about Siv Jakobsen, a talented new musical artist from Norway. The Life Elsewhere host’s unbridled enthusiasm led to a request for an interview with the Oslo-based musician. Arrangements were quickly made, and with disarming candor, Siv chatted with Norman B for twice as long as the scheduled interview time. “Listen carefully to her lyrics,” Mr. B continues, “Siv displays a maturity, way beyond her years. Plus, she is able to introduce a fresh, emotive take on a well-known and often-covered song, like Dolly Parton’s Jolene.”
Toward the end of the interview, Norman B asks Siv Jakobsen if she would select a Hit That Never Was. With unsurprising confidence, Siv does not hesitate when she chooses a relatively new release from American Country artist, Liza Anne. “I know it’s not old,” says Siv, “but I really believe Take It Back should have been a hit!”
After the interview, Norman B reflected, “It’s rare that you come across an artist who is so self-assured, yet completely down-to-earth and without pretension.” We are predicting you will be hearing a lot more from Siv Jakobsen. Make sure you do not miss this up-close and personal interview on the next edition of Life Elsewhere.
