Frida Hyvönen released her first album Until Death Comes, already in 2005 and has since been one of Sweden’s most celebrated artists. She consistently released all her material in English, until 2016 when she released her first album in Swedish; Kvinnor och barn. Frida has taken on several different genres over the years, which has had the effect that that through her piano driven pop music she has grown a lot as an artist over the past twelve years. With her Swedish album, we came closer to Frida than ever before through her naked and honest narrative and autobiographical texts presented with her Northern Swedish accent. Live, Frida performs her songs scaled off and atmospheric and her performances are usually, as we say, soothing for the soul.
