Sara Fjeldvær from Hitra is among the most exciting new vocalists to emerge from Trondheim's jazz scene in recent years

Already at the age of 16, she moved away from home, and began to work seriously on her music. Followed by a bachelor's in jazz at NTNU, she released her self-titled debut album in 2021 and last autumn she released the EP Best Love (Fjorgata). Over the summer, she will release music from her forthcoming second album, but most importantly will help close Moldejazz 2023, as the last concert at Storyville.

Fjeldvær impressed greatly during Trondheim Calling, in the presence of Moldejazz's emissaries who did not hesitate to make contact for this year's programme.

Fjeldvær has a nerve in his music that is difficult to overcome. She herself says that the lyrics want to penetrate and force you to feel something, but also the very sound of the compositions and the communication does this to you. It hits you in the diaphragm without you seeing it coming.

In some ways she resembles Ingrid Helene Håvik's highly developed and well-controlled use of melismas, in other ways she weaves in idioms that can be linked to kveding as well as RnB, vibrato that resembles Adele, or various eastern music. At other times, one can hear possible compositional inspirations in Susanne Sundfør and Hanne Hukkelberg. There are many references that come forward, but still with such a completely cast appearance that they only become parentheses against Fjeldvær's uniqueness.

Apart from guitarist Johannes Konstad Brevik, Fjeldvær has musicians with whom Moldejazz has seen a lot in recent years. Including Alexander Riris from last year's Jazzintro winners in the Joakim Rainer Trio, and the Jazzintro winners from 2018 from I Like To Sleep, Amund Storløkken Åse and Øyvind Leite.

Come in, for a defining and life-giving rawness. We promise a concert where beauty, pain, hope and search are in contact with each other and will come out to you in the summer night, with wild and intense energy. Like the sea.

Sara Fjeldvær - vocals, Amund Storløkken Åse - vibraphone, Johannes Konstad Brevik - guitar, Alexander Riris - bass, Øyvind Leite - drums
