Singer, songwriter and former member of pop 90’s duo – M2M, Marit Larsen, releases her EP, Joni was right (tracklist below), today via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all other digital service providers! Recorded on the Faroe Islands and self-produced by Marit, this project is a departure from her pop records. While staying true her artistic storytelling abilities, she takes on a new approach and strips down the layers to fully embrace the folk sound.
As a teen, Marit’s good friend gave her Joni’s albums (Blue, Court and Spark, Ladies of the Canyon) and she was never the same again. Through the natural rollercoaster of life, they have been the soundtracks of her journey. To Marit, Joni’s lyrics unfolded like the advice of an older sister, trying to guide her down the right path. With Joni’s help, however, Marit learned that we all continue to make our own decisions, and have to learn the tough lessons ourselves. Come to find out, in the end, Joni was right.
“If you’re on the hunt for lush and gorgeous folk that draws from the best of classic inspirations, you need more Marit Larsen in your life immediately.” – Baeble Music.com
This EP is the debut release on Marit’s very own label, Håndbrygg Records (translating to “hand brew” records). She is an avid coffee connoisseur! And how she brews her coffee, is how she brews her records, with lots of love.
“Starting this label has been a long time coming. One of the biggest changes in this new life is that I’ll be able to release music how and when I want to, meaning more frequent releases and being able to release my records worldwide simultaneously. Geo blocking simply does not belong on 2016.” says Marit on why she wanted to launch Håndbrygg Records.
