Norwegian pop singer/songwriter Aurora Aksnes (aka AURORA) released her debut single, “Awakening,” in late 2013. With her frosty electronic textures, spare beats, and clear, emotive vocals, the young Bergen native works in a similar dark pop milieu as artists like Oh Land, Lykke Li, and Lorde. Honing her live show and building on the momentum of her first single, Aksnes issued the follow-up single “Under Stars” in late 2014 and announced that she had signed with American label Glassnote.
Her debut EP, Running with the Wolves, was released in the spring of 2015. The young singer/songwriter then came to further prominence, having covered the Oasis track “Half the World Away” for the 2015 John Lewis Christmas ad before following up with her debut full-length, All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, in 2016. It debuted at number one in Norway and charted across Western Europe.
Aurora is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
