Liive is the new pop project of the eatablished vocalist Live Foyn Friis, who have played around the world with her jazz- and indiejazz projects, released 4 albums, all nominated for international prizes, and she was named The New Jazz Star of Denmark, and won the prize for Best Young Jazz Composer. At SMUKFEST 2018, Liive won the prize Best Performance at JazzCamp 2018, and got to play on Bøgescenen(Denmarks second biggest stage, after Orange Stage at Roskilde Festival) before Mø, Kim Larsen & Britney Spears.
Liive signed with Universal in 2017, and released her first single “København” the fall 2017 (it’s a cute song about beeing lonely in Copenhagen, with Norwegian lyrics), and it became a great radio hit in Denmark!
Next single is very soon to be released, fall 2018, and Liive & her band is ready to take over the world with their live show. Some of the material is in Norwegian and some in English. Her band consists musicians from Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
