Lene Marlin

Born in Tromsø, Norway, Lene Marlin Pedersen had a keen interest in creating music from a young age. In 1995, at the age of 15, she was treated to her first guitar. This gift from her parents would inspire her to spend hours writing music in her room, if only as a hobby while in the midst of long, dark Scandinavian winters. Two years later, some of Lene's friends contacted NRK -- the largest media organization in Norway -- with regards to what they considered to be a special talent. An NRK radio station in Tromsø agreed, and invited Lene along to record a demo, which caught the ear of Virgin Records, who signed her pretty much on the spot. Lene Marlin's hobby had quickly become far more significant in such a short space of time, as she began recording her debut album at the age of 17, while still studying at school. The pay-off was nothing short of miraculous as her debut "Unforgivable Sinner" became the fastest-selling single in Norwegian music history, while Playing My Game topped her country's album charts. Success was also to be found in other parts of Europe, such as in the U.K., where the catchy single "Sitting Down Here" made the Top Five in 2000, and in Italy, with the album making the Top Ten. 2003 saw the release of Lene Marlin's second album, Another Day, which proved to be equally popular, reaching number one in Norway and number three in Italy. The follow-up, Lost in a Moment, arrived in 2005 and enjoyed success once again around Europe although, as with 2009’s Twist the Truth, it was Lene's Norwegian fan base that would prove most loyal to the singer/songwriter. Lene Marlin has also been credited as a songwriter for other artists, including Rihanna on 2007’s "Good Girl Gone Bad." ~ Daniel Clancy, Rovi

Never To Know❤
Love her voice. Does remind me of the Cranberries. That's the great thing about Pandora....I ' v e discovered such amazing music on here!
I have been a fan of hers since the late 90's. Just wish she had been more popular at the time, would have loved to have heard more from her.

duh cranberries- how can that be a missed comparison?

I never realized how many artists were out there that I would love until I started using Pandora... I at first thought it was something new by the Cranberries but was happy to find that it's someone with similar styling.

I first heard her back a few years ago, on Pandora... And, still every time I hear her, it's awesome stuff.
Love it! She also reminds me a bit of the Cranberries. I wish commercial radio played her music.

she has a lovely voic

As soon as I heard her I thought that she absolutely sounded like Doloris from the Cranberries! Such a beautiful voice!
mingtealove
her voice reminds me of jewel.
no one can compare!
She does at times have a Celtic tone to her voice, so I as well thought she might have been Irish. So I was surprised to find out she was Norwegian. Her voice is beautiful and her songs are sweet and melodic even when singing deep lyrics. Her new album is called Twist The Truth.
She sounds just like the cranberries! ! !
lilredmedic
I thought it was Doloris form cranberrys too! Both are great voices
Lene is super..hopef u l l y she releases a new CD in the US soon.
Just absolutely beautiful. Her words and emotion and everything is amazing. :)

"When You Were Around" is such a beautiful song... always brings a tear and a few sighs. Lene is the real deal.
her accent drives me nuts,so beautiful,ca r i n g , s i m i l a r to cranberries singer,oh im american,wis h i knew english,norw e g i a n girls with a accent like this
"Sitting down here" is my favorite song!
"Eyes Closed" has me hooked and is going on the "purchase list". Her sound is wonderfully familiar and yet has an elusive quality that keeps my ears guessing. The fact that she slipped past the Hollywood meat grinder is a plus. You go, girl!

Todd, I completely agree, I looked it up to see if it was Dolores O'Riordan, figured it wasnt from the picture, but was double checking. I wouldn't put her comparative to Jewel as it said above. I'll give Lene a chance, hoping she has something edgier in store.
I think that the most accurate comparison of Lene's voice and style would be
to put her on a parralell to Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries. The lilt and note flips are what made me look up this artist to see if Dolores had gone
out on her own. Its sad to me that it isn't O'Riordan but I'm please to have
discovered Lene Marlin.
I cannot find this song to purchase anywhere- I love it - help!!
Wow... I'm impressed. Her voice is gorgeous!
Surprised some norsk metal band hasn't snapped her up; she could contribute a lot. Guess not everyone can be Liv Kristine in Theatre of Tragedy and Leaves' Eyes.
She has an amazing, soothing voice.
certainly my favorite norwegian artist...gre a t voice, great songs.
lovely ..but for the first time listening to her
