Ninna Lundberg, the 24 year old singer songwriter from Copenhagen, recently signed to Pussyfoot Records for the release of her debut album. And as Pussyfoot Records like to push the boundaries and do things differently, they're inviting her fans to invest in the recording of the album and be part of Lundberg's journey.
Whilst studying composition at The Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, Lundberg's solo songs and collaborations with JUMPSWIM pricked the ears of many on Soundcloud. Notably the track The Door...
Initial workings with Pussyfoot Records further establishes Lundberg's voice, as what Howie describes as "Ninna's voice is just f*ckin' incredible! It sounds like a classic vocal already". He could be right...
With inspirations drawn from from Ella Fitzgerald right through to Feist, P.J Harvey and Nick Cave; Lundberg is drawn to uncomplicated stories in song; both lyrically and melodically.
Hooking up with Howie B puts Lundberg in good hands. Howie, who has worked with Björk on several projects, engineering her second studio album Post and co-writing her US number 1 "I Miss You”.

Other notable credits include production on Tricky's 'Ponderosa’. He's rightly excited to get started on Lundberg's debut.

With a wide scope of musical interests his work has spanned everything from solo performances to writing orchestral arrangements and collaborations with Bjork, Damien Rice, Andrea Bocelli, Sigurrós, Michel Legrand, Daníel Bjarnason and Brian Eno.
