Grete Skarpeid



Skarpeid fills us with so much joy as she reveals herself to be an artist of the first order...
Raul da Gama

Grete Skarpeid has always had a close association with music. She spent her childhood days in Stavanger, Norway constantly singing, playing the piano or listening to records. Joining a choir led her further on to singing solo. Musically she has been inspired by Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Maria Joan and many others, as well as the great classical composers whose music she has enjoyed extensively over the years.

The improvisational nature of jazz and its unexpected rhythmic flows and harmonic explorations has been of special interest to Grete particularly after her two years with the Freiburg jazz choir in Germany.

After obtaining her Masters degree in Music Therapy, Grete has concentrated most of her professional work as a speech therapist in her hometown Voss. Her busy day also contains family, running an active woman's choir and working with both her own solo singing and playing with other musicians, among them Frode Fjellheim's project Biejjien vuelie.
