Biography Isabella Lundgren, Musica Vitae & Carl Bagge

Isabella Lundgren, Musica Vitae & Carl Bagge

Isabella Lundgren
is one of Sweden's foremost jazz singers and a world-class artist. With a fantastic voice and unique intensity, she has, like few others, the ability to captivate her audience.

At the age of 18, Isabella Lundgren left Karlstad for New York where she studied and performed between 2006 and 2010. She played on all sorts of legendary stages, but also mixed a perhaps bohemian artistic life with a destructive one.

Isabella talks about waking up in a bed somewhere. She doesn't know where she is or who is lying next to her, but as her gaze travels over empty bottles and bags, it finally finds a mirror, and she sees herself for the first time in a long time. She breaks up, moves home, gets sober and starts studying to become a priest...

Isabella Lundgren has released several critically acclaimed albums in Sweden and Japan, was awarded Orkesterjournalen's Golden Disc in 2015 and has been nominated for a Grammy. In 2015, Isabella was also awarded a Jazz Cat as Musician of the Year at the Swedish Radio Jazz Cat Gala and in addition to this, she has also been awarded the Monica Zetterlund Scholarship, the STIM Scholarship, the Louis Armstrong and Anita O'Day Scholarship, the City of Stockholm's Cultural Scholarship and the Gustaf Fröding Scholarship.

In 2016, Isabella gave an acclaimed Summer Talk in P1 where she highlighted several of the life issues that are also reflected and central to her music.

"This divinely gifted singer is one of the best things to happen to the Swedish jazz scene. Let me just say that Isabella Lundgren has a seriousness that is unique. She makes time slow down just by being. It's called charisma and presence. And then she sings fantastically. With a completely natural flowing timing and a low-key but very expressive phrasing. The fact that she has something to say with her lyrics also contributes to the magic." - Dan Backman, SVD
