Vilja-Louise is a rare singer who can create entire musical worlds with nothing but her voice. Singing from the Source is an unaccompanied solo album in which she sings powerful yet intimate interpretations of traditional folk songs from Sweden, Appalachia and Ireland.

The album captures the vitality and resonance of a concert, shimmering with variety and nuance. The spellbinding quality of Vilja-Lousie’s voice strokes your cheek with velvet and tickles your neck with a light breeze. It is tender, raw, unearthly and beautiful.

Singing from the source is Vilja-Louise’s debut album. It is a result of three years of artistic research at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden.
