Live Foyn Friis is the vocalist and songwriter in the band Foyn Trio!, with bandmates Alex Jønsson (guitar, effects and chorus) and Jens Mikkel Madsen (bass, backing vocals).
In addition she has a band named “Live Foyn Friis” which includes the members of Foyn Trio! plus Andreas Skamby (drums).
And then there is the orchestra “Live Foyn Friis with Strings”, which adds to “Live Foyn Friis” Louise Grom (violin), Amalie Kjældgaard (violin), Mikkel Schreiber (viola) and Maria Edlund (cello).
