Vilja-Louise is a singer of haunting vocal beauty. Her work is grounded in Swedish folk music and is enriched with her passion for international vocal styles. A captivating performer, both as a soloist and in various collaborations and projects, she freely crosses genres to embrace a diversity of musical forms.

During her Masters studies at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Vilja-Louise examined the expressive clarity that moves and touches her in certain performances and recordings. Her phrase ’Singing from the Source’ describes that quality - an unmasked, authentic style of interpretation which avoids staged mannerisms and lets the music flow through the true feeling in the moment.

Bringing this attitude to all her work, Vilja-Louise inhabits her repertoire with strength and fragility. She weaves together her various influences, contributing to a living musical continuum.

”In my mind, the songs are fundamentally organic, not fixed - they live, they develop, they evolve and grow like a living organism.”
