Defining a unique balance of uproar and beauty.
Her ability to move between the often strict confines of genres and explore the elements is on full display throughout. In solo affairs as well as in collaborations, she has encapsulated her own personal vision of the role of the saxophone, often turning it into a complete physical experience. Embracing her audience with sonic altitude and prolific melody lines, rocketing a more prosaic stem. Her performances ties together audience and artist, and embodies the energy between the two.
In the recent years she has been touring with among others Godspeed You! Black Emperor throughout France, Australia and USA, Chris Corsano throughout Europe and Japan, Sofia Jernberg throughout Australia, her own band consisting of Torbjörn Zetterberg, Johan Berthling, Raymond Strid, Paul Lytton, and been doing an extensive amount of solo shows all over the world. She is seen in projects and doing collaborations with among others, MoE, Craig Taborn, Barry Guy, Zeena Parkins, Nicole Mitchel, Michio Yagi, Fire! Orchestra and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. Newly releases on American Feeding Tube Records with Bhutanese guitarist Tashi Dorji, and on French Dark Tree Records with French guitarist Julien Desprez.
