‘… For a moment, she was Gordon, Knowles, Joplin and Patti in marvellous unity, while music and sorcery flowed together’
Throughout a long career, Kirstine has fronted several remarkable music projects.
She was co-founder and core-member of the award-winning and highly successful group Blue Foundation – her unique voice and songwriting being some of the key characteristics of the group’s sound.
In 2013, Kirstine released her first solo album, the critically acclaimed ‘Hamskifte’ (Sloughing). As composer and producer of the entire album Kirstine expanded her artistic vision and capabilities on this album, and ‘Hamskifte’ stands out as a truly personal statement with a unique sound and intriguing and poetic lyrics in her native Danish tongue.
Most recently, Kirstine has co-invented a completely new concert form – the successful and award winning concept HUN SOLO, which presents solo concerts with female artists. The latest addition to the venture is the new record label HUN SOLO RECORDS.
Kirstine has composed music for theatre and modern dance, as well as for film and TV, among others Catherine Hardwicke’s ‘Twilight’.
In 2012-2015, she was Denmark’s representative in the jury of the Nordic Council Music Prize and Chairman of the Jury in 2015.
