HALIE is the 17-year-old pop phenomenon who came, sang and won the audiences hearts! After a stunning debut at last year’s Vill Vill Vest, she gained praise across the country boarders and got picked by NME, Line of Best Fit, i-D and Clash as festival highlight. Her first single, Echo, was released on the renowned indie label, Kitsuné. In February she performed at Where’s the Music? in Sweden, which led to her TV debut, and being the first ‘unknown’ artist to ever perform at, Skavlan – Scandinavia’s biggest talk show. Concurrent, her second single, Youth, was released, and she performed at a crammed Sentrum Scene, during by:Larm in Oslo. Norwegian press hailed the performance and gave HALIE great reviews. Until now, 20 Norwegian festivals have made sure to put HALIE on their line up for the summer!

June 22 HALIE releases her third single, Holiday! A song about staying true to who you are, “It’s a song about finding your own path and believing in the choices you make, even though others may disagree.” She’s inspired by famous stars like Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone, but also newer starlets, such as Sigrid and Billie Eilish. She describes her music as alternative pop with a story to tell, “I want the music to convey a deeper purpose, with lyrics people can relate to and reflect over.”

Being 17, HALIE is starting her senior year at high school, where she combines homework and classes with an up & coming artist career. If you remember back a few years, or if you have seen SKAM, you might recall a time filled with intense feelings, new experiences and the final celebration – in Norwegian called ‘russetid’. HALIE is looking forward to the year to come as artist and ‘russ’, and seeks to combine these two rolls in the best way possible, though it gets surreal at times, “It’s unreal doing homework on a Wednesday and taking press photos in L.A. on a Friday! It sure is fantastic!”, she says with a big smile on her face. Being a teenager, she is exploring her identity and coming to terms with who she is and what she believes in. The audience is in a unique position to follow HALIE on her musical and personal journey in the years to come. Sit tight!
