In 2020, Annisette (The Savage Rose) and DR Big Band went into the studio to record songs and music that, among other things, have inspired and shaped Annisette throughout her life - a musical journey through time. The album 'Tale Of Time' is a rare opportunity to join the journey that turns the past into the present, when Annisette reinterprets a number of classics by, among others, James Brown, Bob Dylan and songs from her own back catalogue. Together with the exuberant brass arrangements and the DR Big Band's soloists, you are taken into the organic world of music and songs that live.
There is no doubt that Annisette is a legend on the Danish music scene. She has fronted the band The Savage Rose for more than 50 years, and despite being 73, she has no plans to start slowing down her career. In 2019, she was invited to sing with the DR Big Band at a number of concerts in the DR Koncerthuset. The joint concerts were the starting point for a rare musical collaboration that has now resulted in 'Tale Of Time'
Naja Rosa is back in 2022 with a personal and soulful album, Closer To The Sun. A series of extremely solid songs in a completely unique atmosphere that, with its quirky and alluring twilight pop, takes the listener on a hypnotic journey. The first single "Break The Chain" has been in A-Rotation on DR P6 Beat. It has been 8 years since Naja Rosa released her latest critically acclaimed and award-winning album "These Are The Times" (Universal Music), which was also sampled by American rapper A$AP Rocky. A lot has happened since then. Naja has toured intensively in the UK and abroad with his other band The Savage Rose, on stages such as Roskilde Festival's Orange Stage, KB Hallen, Det Kgl Teater and the Opera. She has composed, recorded and produced, and together with the band received DMA's honorary award in 2020. On the personal side, Naja Rosa has also felt the development of life. She has now moved back to DK after having lived half her life in the USA, lost her father-in-law, and in the middle of the Corona era gave birth to a daughter who is already on the roads, on the stages and in the studios.
Billie And The Bell is a new trio consisting of singer Billie Koppel, Frank Hasselstroem (keyboards) and Joel Gjærsboel Pedersen (guitar) – all experienced, distinctive musicians with a past and present in bands such as The Savage Rose and Catbird and as instrumentalists with a large number of Danish artists.
