The New Star in the Norwegian Pop Jazz Sky

 

Ellen Andrea Wang is enjoying a rapid career: The young bass player, composer and singer is being celebrated in various bands and projects: She plays with super drummer Manu Katché on an extended tour, she is a member of Marilyn Mazur´s Shamania, a member of the Norwegian women's power trio "Gurls" which is currently causing a sensation in her home country, and above all she is  the head of her own trio.

 

Ellen Andrea Wang is not just playing bass and singing but is at the same time a great composer/songwriter who skillfully masters the keyboard of song aesthetics and rock energy. Catchy melodies tend to form the basis for extensive jazz inspired phrasing.

 

Classically educated on the violin and choral singing in her youth and a double bass study at the Oslo Conservatory, the young musician is equipped with the necessary tools to realize her own ideas. With her trio she makes a clear musical statement, bringing original compositions and familiar pop songs to the stage with immense enthusiasm. Their sound worlds range from acoustic jazz to synth funk with driving grooves and opulent choir movements.
