They are based in Denmark, a country that warmly has embraced Live and her music as her debut album, Joy Visible was nominated to the Danish Music Awards 2012 for Best Vocal Jazz Album of the year. Live also won the category “The Years Young Jazz Composer in Denmark 2012” and “Denmark’s New Jazz Star” in 2012!

The music is truly original and can be characterized as: playful,
airy, lovely and very accessible. She fuses different styles like jazz,
pop, electronica, and improvisations into her totally original blend.
Something that has been appreciated by musicians like John Scofield, Brian Blade and most of the European jazz/ pop oriented community.

Said about Live:
– “As a jazz singer, she is simply phenomenal.» (Bernhard Hienerwadel, Altaposten)

-”One of the hottest names on the current Danish jazz scene with a recent Danish Music Award nomination and the title as Young Jazz Composer of the Year 2012.” (Kenneth Kristensen, Aarhus Musik Festival)

“An expression so strong and so musically that it was clear to all, that here is a female soloist with the world at her feet!” (Stardust – Wall of Fame – Jette Lykke)

The music: indie-jazz with elements of pop, rock and electronica. The band has played numerous concerts all over Europe and has built a reputation as a great live-act. And Live is absolutely brilliant as a live-artist. This year they have performed at: JazzAhead in Bremen, as a support act for John Scofield Ûberjam Band in the Czech Republic, in the Nordic countries, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Brazil, New York etc. Next year Live and her band will tour in South Africa, South America and China.
