About Me

The Swedish jazz singer, arranger, composer and improviser Lina Nyberg released in 2017 her 18th CD, ”Terrestrial” the grand final in her double album trilogy. An epic artwork in which Linas voice, music, lyrics and arrangements creates a brand new universe for the listener. ”Terrestrial” was awarded the ”Gyllene skivan”-prize as the best jazz album of the year by the legendary Swedish jazz magazine Orkesterjournalen.

For about 20 years she has been attracting consistent and widespread attention, starting with the debut in 1993 with the duo CD Close together with late pianist Esbjörn Svensson until now, at the release of ”Terrestrial” with her amazing new music for her band and symphony orchestra. “Masterful, imaginative and inspiring…” All About Jazz ”Nyberg’s incredible command of the lyrics and music, and compelling musical vision make this ambitious storytelling project riveting.” DownBeat Magazine
