Inger Marie Gundersen Re-Imagines Hits Including "Let It Be Me" and Willie Nelson's "Always On My Mind"!

Inger Marie waited for many years before she ventured upon a solo career, but she has ample experience from many years’ activities in the music field. For twenty years she has been active as vocalist in several bands, ranging from a youthful rock band to a six year period as lead singer of a jazz big band. She has also fronted her own jazz quintet ”My Favorite Strings”, as well as collaborating with several excellent jazz musicians, among them Tom Lund, one of Norway’s finest Latin jazz-guitarists, founder of the renowned group ”Trio de Janeiro”.

Having thus gathered a lot of experience and ”paid her dues”, Inger Marie finally decided to enter the studio to record her debut solo CD ”Make This Moment”. The time was right. Years of singing had matured her voice into an instrument of impressive sensitivity and perfection. Producer Lars Martin Myhre, himself a brilliant musician and a major artist in Norway, says that never has he got a bigger surprise than the one he got when Inger Marie started singing in the studio. She was displaying a voice so controlled, so beautiful and so personal at her first recording date, that the seasoned producer was left with his mouth open, stunned in admiration of the awareness and the warm and direct communication in her voice.

”Make This Moment” was released in Norway in October 2004. The album received rave reviews and instant recognition by jazz aficionados. After some months, Inger Marie's voice started touching hearts and impressing music lovers in places far from Norway. Japanese record buyers discovered her album, which started selling hundreds, then thousands in Japanese record stores. Record companies in Korea, The Philippines, Hong Kong, and soon also Japan, licensed the album and launched local releases. Now the album has been released in most of Asia, as well as in Europe, and has touched the hearts and souls of thousands of listeners.

"(Make This Moment by vocalist Inger Marie Gundersen)... is a nice reminder that vocal performances do not always have to be unbridled exhibitions of melismatic acrobatics. Indeed the hallmark of the album is an admirable restraint, and even austerity in the vocals and instrumentation... Make This Moment is an encouraging debut solo recording by a promising talent. Gundersen and her band treat their material with the utmost respect and delicacy. The album is a refreshingly tasteful affair." -, April 4, 2005
