After 17 years as a recording artist Frida Hyvönen remains uncategorizable. Maybe she knows it, maybe she doesn’t, but fact remains that her singularity as an artist is quite extraordinary. Firmly seated on the piano bench Hyvönen tells her compelling stories with great detail – the events all accounted for, the dark secrets only hinted. And the result is as complex as it is captivating. Always fearless, always urgent – Frida Hyvönen is larger than life.
Frida Hyvönen released her stunning debut ‘Until Death Comes’ in 2005 followed by her amazing sophomore effort ‘Silence Is Wild’ in 2008 and later by the adrenalizing ‘To The Soul’ in 2012. In 2016 Hyvönen released the widely celebrated ‘Kvinnor och barn’ – her first attempt in her native tongue. On 2021’s ‘Dream of Independence’ Hyvönen returned to the English language while delivering what was considered one of the best albums of the year. This summer, you can experience the powerful Frida Hyvönen at Way Out West!
Frida Hyvönen will be playing in Slottsskogen on Saturday Aug 13th.
