Finally, it looks like the snow is melting away after a really long and snowy winter. The other day, I found my first horseshoe flower, a sure sign of spring in Norway.
Since finishing my Christmas tour, Julegaven, last year, I’ve been pretty much like a sleepwalking zombie during the first few months of the year. It took a toll on me, but with sufficient rest, healthy eating, yoga, fresh air and positive thinking, I’m now back in the saddle. It doesn’t mean I have been entirely dormant since January.
On the contrary, I have – with the help of my wonderful booking agent, Reidun Berntsen from Rocksport Booking – managed to book a full, new Christmas tour for this year. I have also played a music festival in Thailand, and done a few other concerts around Norway. Being back in Asia to play concerts was a real treat for me. It has been so long, and I felt so blessed to get the opportunity again!
These days, I’m rehearsing with a new colleague, guitar- and keyboard player David Aleksander Sjølie, in order to take things back to basic. For several years now, I have been touring with a full 5-6 piece band, which is a lot of fun to do! However, I’ve felt the need to strip it all down, and create a more intimate setting in my concerts to get closer to my audience. So – introducing: Trine Rein Acoustic!
In a little while, I will publish some upcoming events here – and until I do: Enjoy your springtime, wherever you are!
