Kirsti Huke Norway
Kirsti Huke has become a household name in the Norwegian jazz scene. Her voice has been described as a honey jar and a powerhouse both apt descriptions of this gifted singer´s playful and rooted approach to jazz standards as well as pop and rock songs in a quartet setting. The Norwegian music press has remarked upon her ability to make the audience feel that what she sings matters to her (Trygve Lundemo, Adresseavisen). Her quartet features Steinar Raknes, perhaps Norway´s premier bass player of his generation.
