Katharina Nuttall Bio

Katharina Nuttall is an artist, film composer and music producer, born July 14, 1972 in Drammen, Norway. Nuttall lives in Stockholm, Sweden but is a Norwegian citizen with a Norwegian mother and a father from the UK.

Her debut album This Is How I Feel was released in 2007, followed by Cherry Flavour Substitute in 2008. Songs from the two albums were put together on the European release Cherry Flavour Substitute Limited Edition, an album that was awarded a German Record Critics Award in 2009.

Cherry Flavour Substitute, the second album of the young swedish musician, released on her own label Frances Records, is a great success. On the one hand, it is melancholic, dark chamber pop, on the other hand, the eleven songs of the album glitter almost cinemascope-like orchestrated. Nuttalls voice sounds fragile and elfin, but at the same time it has the energy to be a match for stars such as Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Susan Janet Ballion (Siouxsie & The Banshees) or Polly Jean Harvey easily. An exquisite musical treasure, brilliant in every sense. Für die Jury: Jan Ulrich Welke

In September 2010, Nuttall announced that she will be going back into the studio to work on a new album in collaboration with the English producer Head known for his longstanding working relationship with PJ Harvey.
The album was released by the record label Novoton in Scandinavia on March the 23rd 2011, with the title Turn me on.
