Christina Undhjem - It´s not very often i get "goosebumps" from an new artist theese days!



First i want to know how did you start your music career ?
Hehehe.....well profesionaly in Denmark with my band YOUKNOWWHO in 1995! But before that i went to different music schools: folkehøgskule and viken folkehøgskule in Norway and Vig Rytmiske Musikkhøjskule from Danemark.
I also came from a very musical family. They tought me alot!Specially my brother Eivind Løberg(composer and former childstar in Norway)

So you came from a family of musicians... that explains the mark from your music...
:)

Who came with YouknowWho name ?
I can't remember who came up with the band name.....but i do remember that we wrote a song called "YouKnowWho" but it never got released!

Who wrote the songs from Youknowwho material ?
Me, Martin Larsson and Lars Jensen wrote the tracks on the YouKnowWho album!And was produced in Lemon Studio Stockholm/Sweden by Chairon/Max Martin and Dennis Pop.

Do you still keep in touch with your colleagues ?
I don't really have contact with the guys anymore!They´re in  US now. We took different roads...but who knows what the future brings!:)

One of my favorites songs from you are: "Fly with me"(Yamino), "Dreams"(Dj Aligator) and "Underneath My Skin"... Those songs have a story if they do what are  ?
Hmmm hard 'cause i don't remember Fly with me about Dj Aligator - "Dreams" - Ali want me to sing that song thought it would fit my voice it is so long time ago, I can't remember if i co-wrote it. "Underneath my skin" it's song i like too because i could relate to the lyrics but i do not write!. I don't know if those song have a story... BUT i´m glad you like them!


What inspires you when you write songs ?
What inspires me to write?! ..Well... from life cause every experience has a story.....so i write about what i go trough in life. But i also get inspired by the norwegian nature!!!!I find it easy to write when i miss something or someone! I am very sensitive and melancolic :)


For which artists did you wrote? Why did you stop doing dance music ?
I never loved to sing dance music, but sometimes you have to compromise when you´re in a band!
I am into slow music because i'm a melancolic girl..
But do love to write dance music for other artists!!!! But not for myself to release!
I have written for Danish artists,sweedish,german,asian,nowegian,UK,US what i can think of right now! The biggest cut i have had is Jeniffer Rush´s new album "Now Is The Hour"!!!!


Christina you are the hole package - artist with beauty, talent and you wrote amazing lyrics if a big producer whats to make you bigger would you accept it ? Or do you think that commercial music is not what you want to do ?
I love comercial music,but it must be great project!!!!!!And it has to be me in it!! :)


What do you think about music market now ?
Well the music market now is not what it used to be! I miss the old days! ... There will never be a new Whitney, Michael, Pavarotti to name a few!!!And i think it's easy too to become an artist theese days.....cuz you don't have to be a good singer just good looking!!
It´s not very often i get "goosebumps" from an new artist theese days! It's so,so sad!!!


Do did you always dreamed to be a singer ?
Yes,and i will always sing till my last days!! :)


In the future whit whom do you like to work with ?
I would love to work with Rolf Løvland,Gino Vannelli(have worked with him before)and David Foster!!!


Tell me about your new song "One Last Time" what is the story behind ?
The story behind my new song?! I think once in life we all had an bad experience with - broken heart! "One Last Time" - is my story!


What are your future projects
My future projects ... hmmm is to write more songs for me and for other artits!
I hope that one day to get signed with some serious label, who wants the best for me and my music....doers not talkers and i will like to do music movie!!! That is one of my biggest dream.....to make music for movies!!!

Think for yourself and do it yourself!

The angelic voice is back


The angelic voice is coming with a new single. Christina Undhjem lead singer of YouKnowWho released a new masterpiece called "One Last Time", a tune wrote by her in the same style: slow pop, and can be found on itunes.dk.

Christina is a Norwegian singer and songwriter born in Røros but currently resides in Bergen, and has lived in Denmark for 13 years. In 1995 she was one of the finalists in the Norwegian talent contest Looking against the stars (known as Stars in Their Eyes in Britain) where she imitated Whitney Houston. The following year she participated in the international final European Soundmix Show in Holland, where she came in a tie for second place.

After emigrating to Denmark in 1995 she went on the Rhythmic School in Bay, where she met Lars H. Jensen and Martin M. Larsson. The three formed the pop band You Know Who, where Undhjem was lead singer and signed to Universal. Group selvbetitlede debut album from 1997 sold 48,000 copies in Denmark, and hittede with singles like "Good & Evil" and "Guantanamera." from Christina website


It's a complete artist when i say that it's not like saying big words i watched her career and what she did till now amaze me... first of all is a good songwriter(not yet discovered by the hunters of hits) with angelic voice and the last and not least she love-music. She doesn't like to be compared with others ... cause is not like others .. for Christina music is much more: emotion, love & passion... and with a great management team can be "bigger then bigger" but she choose being just - Christina Undhjem (YouKnowWho lead singer)

She also contribuite at Yamino single "Fly with me" and Dj Aligator's smash hit "Dreams". Right now the singer/songwriter is working at her new material that will be released soon..
So keep on eye on her
