"Susanna and her orchestra is in fact a duo that has been around some four years on the Norwegian live scene, to much acclaim. Singer Susanna Wallumrød (23) is a new name while Morten Qvenild (24) is a profiled keyboard player with the likes of Jaga Jazzist, jazz quartet Shining, Norwegian pop diva Bertine Zetlitz and recently Nils Petter Molvær. The first time it hit us that this was something very special was when we heard a demo including their versions of 'Jolene' and Leonard Cohen´s 'Hallelujah'. The second time was when they, with an intimate and intense performance, managed to silence a festive and lively audience at Rune Grammofon´s five year celebration in London last year. Many were taken by their highly personal interpretation of 'Jolene', but also their own songs like 'Believer' and 'Hello' made strong impressions. On our own account we´d like to add that their approach to 'Jolene' and Susanna´s heartfelt delivery brings a new dimension to this classic. Behind the maritime album title we find versions of the mentioned 'Jolene', written by Dolly Parton, and Leonard Bernstein's 'Who Am I' as well as nine originals that show a surprising degree of maturity, especially considering the writers young age and the fact that they operate in a landscape that requires a good deal of songwriting skills to hold your attention."
