I'm confused. Yeah yeah, I know you're thinking that's the constant state I am in, but this time it's real. Being from the American South, I'm wondering what's going on in Scandinavia. I've heard enough country folk in my days to know an imposter when I hear one, and what I've been hearing recently confuses me. First Aid Kit could pass for native Nashvillians, and this newcomer crossing the desk at the Aimless Skylarking headquarters, Janne Hea, sounds like she learned to sing in the backwoods of Kentucky. Yet it can't be, they're from Denmark and Norway, not some holler in the foothills of the Appalachians.
Today's Song of the Day comes from a month old submission I've been sitting on because of my confusion. Janne Hea grew in the deep woods of Hadeland outside Oslo, Norway, and her music is influenced by both, the deep woods and the city. I'm captivated by her voice and the story she's telling. Stream 'Wishing Well' below and watch the video, it's my Song of the Day!
