Bassist, singer and composer Ellen Andrea Wang has distinguished herself as an inventive artist, blending genres in new and unprecedented ways.
Her music has a tasteful blend of jazz and pop elements, and she manages to balance the lyrical with the rough, the acoustic with the electric and creating an urban unique sound with a traditional configuration; bass, vocals, drums and piano.
Wang is also the founder of the critically acclaimed indiejazz band Pixel who have achieved great national and international success. For the last two years Wang has also been touring with Manu Katché band and Marilyn Mazur Shamania, Wang also performed with Sting in 2016.
Wang received the Kongsberg Jazz Festivals great musician award in 2015. The prize is awarded to a musician who has a leading position on the Norwegian jazz scene.
Ellen Andrea Wang trio includes some of Norway’s most talented musicians; Andreas Ulvo (Mathias Eick) on keys and Erland Dahlen (Nils Petter Molvær, Eivind Aarseth) on drums, who put their personal signature on the material.
«A commanding presence in any ensemble she plays in, her soft tone and vocal precision are always counterbalanced with heavy and assertive grooves from her double-bass,interlocking with drummers, jazz, pop and groove alike.»
