Ane Brun on Tour

Ane Brun
In the August 2011 issue of Viking, we highlighted talented musician Ane Brun. The singer-songwriter hails from Molde, Norway. Since 2003, she recorded eight albums and runs her own label, Balloon Ranger Recordings. Who are some of Brun’s musical influences? Chopin, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Jeff Buckley, Arcade Fire, Price and Beethoven.

Recently, Brun’s song, “Don’t Leave,” caught the world’s attention when it was featured in a 2014 Super Bowl commercial for Chevrolet and The American Cancer Society, celebrating cancer survivors in a dedication to World Cancer day. Watch it here.

This spring and summer, Brun is on tour in Europe promoting her latest album, “Rarities.” Says Brunk, “’Rarities’ is a compilation of songs and recordings that have either not been released, or have been released on other compilations or as singles. This is a way to empty our cupboards of recordings that have been lying around, and another way to mark my ten year anniversary as an artist."

For the latest on Ane Brun, follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Anya Britzius is associate managing editor of Viking magazine. She lives in Minneapolis, Minn., and enjoys baking, reading and keeping up on modern Norwegian trends.
