ANE TROLLE - RIVER OF CHIMES
PRESENTED BY NANNA JENSEN
Gifted with a natural musical talent, her rough and vivid voice has taken Ane Trolle far within the Danish music scene, and with a rare ability to engage in an array of creative ventures, Trolle has managed to become one the most recognized female artists in Denmark.
2006 found her bursting out of our radios with sweet treats of honey-drippin' reggae-pop in the company of Danish rapper/producer, Pato, as the duo Trolle // Siebenhaar. The same year she could be heard putting down the melancholic and yearning vocals for the highly acclaimed producer and DJ Trentemøller.
Not only has Ane been able to cross over to a larger and more mainstream Danish audience -- despite her often quite uncompromising take on musical subgenres -- she's also experienced some significant success abroad. In particular, collaborations with both Siebenhaar and Trentemøller have generated international recognition -- notably hitting the charts in Germany and France with the Trolle//Siebenhaar-single Sweet Dogs. Not to forget her crucial vocal feature on Trentemøller's massive electronica hit, Moan.
Prior to her involvement in these collaborations, Ane Trolle was a frequent act in the Danish underground, best known for her ability to jump onstage at any request and blow the audience away with an immediate outburst of improvised lyricism and melody.
Working closely with producer and musician, Peter Leth (The Crooked Spoke, Junior Senior (live)), Trolle has gathered all her experiences from previous collaborations under one roof. Now we find her ready to release her debut album as a solo artist. The material for the album, Honest Wall, has come about after several years of travelling to remote and exotic destinations, such as Rwanda, USA and Haiti, collaborating with a vast variety of authentic and enthusiastic people, all sharing their own inspiring stories. Subsequently, she would spend endless nights in the studio and in her home -- a cosy wooden cottage not far from the centre of Copenhagen -- processing the ideas and impressions from these adventures.
