ABOUT
Four vibrant singers and an unusual collection of instruments.
Major Scandinavian jazz profile and much acclaimed singer-songwriter have created a genre defiant and exhilarating debut album with their ten piece band Tone of Voice Orchestra.
Back in the fall of 2017 two Copenhagen natives, multiple Danish Music Award winner, composer and jazz saxophonist Fredrik Lundin and Trinelise Væring, a singer and songwriter with several critically-acclaimed albums to her name, broke the first ground for Tone of Voice Orchestra.
Four years and a covid-pandemic later they lead an ebullient ten piece powerhouse of a band with a debut album on the way and just enough live concerts already under the belt to call themselves a touring band.
Blending the famous cool Scandinavian sound with global influences
Tone of Voice Orchestra comfortably straddles the divide between multiple genres such as Scandinavian roots, jazz improv and indie-folk, while blending the famous Scandinavian sound with global influences from e.g. Eastern European folklore, americana and North African textures as well as a variety of indie-pop and alternative folk bands. All of these feed into one another and grow lush new forms when added to Tone of Voice Orchestra’s melting pot.
With their genre fluid approach to songwriting and an all together unconventional instrumentation with four singers, fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, cittern, saxophones, flutes, two drummers and double bass,Tone of Voice Orchestra offers a distinctive and fresh new sound.
Catchy hooklines, shamanic beats and evocative lyrics in combination with strong individual contributions from each band member, create a wide range of sonic expressions.
Tone of Voice Orchestra is:
Vocals - Ania Rybacka, Maria Kynne,Tine Refsgaard and Trinelise Væring / Hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, cittern - Christian Mohr Levisen / Violin - Emma Kragh-Elmøe / Saxophones, flutes - Fredrik Lundin / Double bass - Joel Illerhag / Drums, percussion - Jesper Uno Kofoed and Anders Provis
