The Finnish songwriter Mirja Klippel's music is minimalistic and poetic, evoking a muted and intimate space. Musical pictures of rugged landscapes, snow, ice and dried up lakes set the stage for soft and insistent tales and sharp observations that hit you with equal strength and fragility.
She paints minimalistic musical and poetic landscapes, that have won over audiences and critics around Europe. Her lyrics are a string of intense feelings, exploding when her voice meets Alex Jønsson’s falsetto and electric guitar. Together the duo creates a crackling musical universe that is in constant movement.
In 2016 Klippel released the EP “Lift Your Lion” which lead to a Danish Music Award as ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and in 2018 the debut full-length album “River of Silver” came out, impressing critics in Denmark and abroad.
The duo has in recent years toured extensively within and outside Denmark, having performed in everything from living rooms in East Jutland to wooden churches in Finland and established festivals in the likes of Arctic Sounds in Greenland. In 2019 they will embark on a major tour in amongst others Germany, Finland and Russia.
"Mirja Klippel cannot be recommended highly enough! It is rarely heard quality, carried through on a high artistic level and with such a personal voice that you are drawn in and seduced already from the first note...” – Diskant (DK)
