Info for Movies & Stories Like This

A microphone and a grand piano: Two leading Norwegian jazz artists have put together an excellent album with just a microphone and a grand piano. On 'Movies & Stories Like This' they present nine self-composed songs about intangible love. Hilde Louise's voice is elegantly accompanied by Anders Arums, they cover everything from bolero and tango to French waltz and jazz ballads. Piaf, Brell and Weill are evident sources of inspiration.

Hilde Louise's lyrics span both the minor and the major kinds of love, from everyday relationships, the ones about which no films are made, but nevertheless carry with great drama, to the big love stories.

Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen has released 11 albums since 2004 and continues to be an important part of the Norwegian jazz scene. Her previous album 'Red Lips, Knuckles and Bones' was released on Ozella Music to great reviews. She has been described as "three parts Monroe and one part Holiday", and has nurtured an extensive career as a cabaret- artist and a musical actress. Her latest solo performance and book by the name of 'Stardust' is a tribute to 8 female legends from last century. The show is a great success in Norway, and is to visit Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2023.

Hilde Louise on Movies & Stories Like This: I have thought a lot about how love governs our lives. It can lie dormant for periods, but then, suddenly, it jumps up like a panther and takes control of everything. It comes in all shapes, and causes the deepest longing, endless sorrow and divine happiness, makes us hate, lie, steal and turns the most introverted dry stick into a generous and empathic lover. Love never ceases to amaze me. This is not a tribute to beauty love, but a celebration of its mysteries
