Norway’s National Treasure Solveig Leithaug Reveals Her Process And Shares Her New Music

“When I look back, it’s been very, very clear to me that God has been an ever-present help in time of need,” says internationally acclaimed independent singer-songwriter, Solveig Leithaug. A witness to God’s provision as a single mother of three while struggling to fulfill her call to Christian music, she admits she is one of those artists for whom “the songs just never stopped coming.”

Solveig’s long career has touched the world through her pristine vocals and masterful guitar skills, appearing in 20 countries, winning a Dove Award, continuing to record, and appearing on Gaither Homecoming videos. As one of Norway’s top recording artists (now based in the US), Solveig offers a purity of heart and voice that is rare in today’s music world.  

Releasing her 19th recording “Riverside: Hymns and Spiritual Songs,” Solveig continues a legacy of Christian worship passed down from her musical parents. Originally begun as part of a Lenten Hymn Series she arranged each day for her Facebook fans, the project caught in her home church and soon many people were sharing out the beautiful hymn arrangements and requesting she record them.

Produced by Steve Hindalong (The Choir) and featuring powerful musicians like Stuart Duncan (mandolin/fiddle), Matt Slocum (Cello), Hannah Sorrells (violin), Odessa Settles (vocals), and Solveig’s daughter, Kari Julianna Leithaug (vocals), Riverside: Hymns & Spiritual Songs is another treasure to add to your collection of Solveig’s masterful work.
