Unni Wilhelmsen is one of my favourite singer songwriters. She has made good songs and released great albums since the mid 90’s, and is always a pleasure to see live. Tonight she played at John Dee in Oslo, as part of her summer tour. Here are some pictures from the concert.
Unni Wilhelmsen breakthrough came with the album To Whom It May Concern in 1996. The album contained songs like I Won’t Go Near You Again and This Means You To Me, Now, and sold to Gold, plus she got a Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannprisen) for the album. She also got a Grammy as Female Artost of the Year for that album.
Since For Whom It May Concern, Unni Wilhemsen has released seven albums with self-penned songs. Among them Hurricane’s Eye with one of my personal favorites, Everyone’s Honesty. Her latest album is a live CD, a collaboration with the Bodoe Sinfonietta and Boedoe Rhythm Group. You can read about it here.
The concert at John Dee was held in front of an enthusiastic audience, where most of the people were hardcore fans who know all her songs. Unni Wilhelmsen is also a storyteller, and in addition to her songs, we got many amusing stories. I didn’t see the whole concert, but what I saw was great, and the audience loved it.
