Norwegian singer Marie Noreger and her latest single 'Soulfully High'

Marie Noreger is a Norwegian musician with a recent single 'Soulfully High'

Burgeoning Norwegian singer Marie Noreger releases her single ‘Soulfully High’ this September 4th.

The track is the second release in the lead up to Marie’s debut EP and is her first introduction to the UK.  

Marie on Soulfully High: 

Soulfully High is expressing an inner journey. 

It was originally a poem I wrote when I was 16, facing a rough time. 

As a means to help myself I was writing a lot at that time.. and it was especially this poem I kept writing on as I was growing out of the pain. 

About four years ago I went abroad to live on an island in Spain for a little while. 

I experienced something really nice happening inside, as I went inwards rather than looking outside myself to find happiness. 

I was often spending a lot of time alone, walking, listening to music and feeling the movement of the ocean. But I also spend some time with people that mean something special to me.. And at some point it just clicked. 

I realised I had no toxic energy around me, and I had the space to reconnect with myself.

When I recorded the song two years later, I brought some of that experience into the poem. Now the song is really not sad at all. I'm basically singing to myself as if I was my best friend, lover or sister.. It became a sort of guiding song rather than a sad song telling a sad story. 

About Marie Noreger:

Even though there are no other musicians in 23-year-old Marie Noreger’s family, she is not surprised she ended up as an artist and songwriter. Marie grew up in a creative family, her father being a photographer, and a house-dj in his younger days, her grandmother being a painter, and her aunt being a puppet maker. There was always music playing in the house, and her father taught her about obscure house-remixes from the 90s. She also attended concerts with her father from a very young age. 

Speaking on her music, Marie explains; “I have a lot of emotions I haven’t processed properly, and they come out through the music. I write a lot about what it’s like to be human in the society we live in, and how it feels to be around other people.”

Marie Noreger is the first artist services signing from The Orchard Nordics. The 23-year-old Norwegian released her first single “Adore” in June, which was radio listed on NRK P3. A lot’s in store for this newcomer, and two singles are yet to be released in 2020 before she releases her debut EP in January 2021. Her second single ‘Soulfully High’ is out 4th September. 

As a freelance photographer Marie has a distinct and artistic expression that is perceived throughout the whole project, and everything from artwork to music videos are produced and organised by the artist herself. The music is created and recorded together with her producer and manager Kim Ofstad in his home studio.
