Since I have been writing about Norwegian music for so long, I am just bursting with artists from my country which I want to share with you. Josefin Winther is one of those artists who has a special place in my heart.
She is an award-winning songwriter, and I have seen her live and met her several times.
She has that true passion for music which really comes to life on the stage, and she has just released “Moving forward” which I feel captures that essence.
Josefin Winther sings with her heart exposed, and she has often fearlessly put her own life into her songs.
“Moving forward” has Josefin`s signature laidback verses who are exploding into powerful choruses, and she always manages to bring goosebumps during those heights. I just love the way she can change her vocals during the songs.
When it comes to video and music I feel that Josefin is truly moving forward in her career, this is without some of the best I have heard and seen from her. She is such a star, and I hope you like this.
This is what Josefin had to say about her own song.
«Moving forward» is a song about wanting to change. Myself and the world. Every day I see it clearly and I decide to act, to do something. And then the world catches up with me, and the temptations to wait, to fade are so many. I give into them. Over and over. Despite this there is a force inside that never stops demanding that I fight. It demands that I keep deciding to move forward. I hope that this force slowly changes something in me. And in the world.
