Biography:

 

Her recording "Veggen" - the soundtrack from the song & pantomime performance - received the NOPA (Guild of Norwegian Pop composers) Award for best compositary work 2011. 

 

The last years, Karoline has enjoyed great success on the stage of

the theater: a major role in the critically acclaimed modern

cabaret version of Ibsens "Peer Gynt" has taken her

amongst others to Barcelona, Lisboa, Hamburg and

New York. She spent the major part of 2017 as an actress

with acclaimed ensemble "Statsteatret", also

writing the musical score for their production

"1950- The Spy". The spring of 2019 she will take on

her biggest musical challenge until now: the part of

"Florence" in CHESS, at Folketeatret in Oslo.  

 

Both as a composer and as concert

performer Karoline leans on her

comprehensive work from the theatre

field: Whether the form it takes

is simple and bequiling or

dramatically melodious, it is always

interwoven with the narrative.

 

 

Karoline Krüger is to be found in the "Land-of-in-between". She has,

first and foremost, since her debut over three decades ago, firmly established herself in the flora of Norwegian performing artists, as an exciting and gifted performer and composer. One of her hallmarks

has always been her willingness to seek out new forms of expression - the theatre being one of them. "The difference between the

performing artist and the actor", she says, "was already clearly

visible to me in the days of schoolplay performances. Those

who dreamed of becoming actors wanted to play the

part of the Witch: we budding performers were only

interested in playing Snow White...!"

 

In the course of two decades Karoline Krüger

has released six solo albums and has been

featured on numerous others. Her debut

album, "Fasetter" (Facets) was released in

1988.

 

The same year she enjoyed a

huge hit in parts of Europe  & Asia

with the ballad "You call it love".

 

However, it was with the album "Fuglehjerte" (The Heart of a

Bird) that she really blossomed as lyricist and

composer. The triology of the "Jacob's Mass", for

which she wrote the music, have since the first

performance in Oslo in 2000, been performed

and broadcasted in several Scandinavian countries.

Her latest CD "Labyrinter!" (Labyrinths!),

based on her music to children poems by Norwegian poet

André Bjerke,received exellent reviews and was also

nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Award 2018.
