Personal Quote:

I took singing lessons for a year before doing the recordings for Hilde (2009). Despite all of that, unfortunately I can't imitate her. When I hear a version of mine and think, Not so bad!, then I listen to her version and my heart sinks, because of course I don't come close to what she had in her voice. But through this process I understood her better as a human being. See more »
