I’ve listened to Solveig’s music for years and had the pleasure of hearing some of the songs from her new CD, “Time” since last summer on a mutual friend’s weekly Facebook Live program. Then, in April 2017, I got to meet her in person. It was then I knew I had to share the beautiful music and heart of this gentle and kind woman. She’s a fabulous guitarist too! It’s my pleasure to share the following interview I did with Solveig and a few of the songs from her new CD. ~ Karen Power, Owner & Booking Agent for Christian Speakers Services

Time highlights guest vocals by Anthony Skinner, Cindy Morgan, Kelly Willard and Solveig’s daughter Kari Julianna. Eight of the project’s eleven songs are new and were written by Solveig with award-winning songwriters such as: Reba Rambo-McGuire, Cindy Morgan, Sarah Hart, Anthony Skinner, and Kelly Willard.
Time was produced by Steve Hindalong and features some of Nashville’s finest musicians including Jeff Taylor, Stu Garrard, Matt Slocum, and others along with Solveig’s signature acoustic guitars.
“Blending a mature adult contemporary sound with some Americana influence, Norwegian artist Solveig Leithaug has given fans a steady stream of heartfelt melodies since the mid-‘80s when she had a deal with Word Records. These days, she’s reaching fans as an indie artist with an impressive catalog and an enjoyable new release, Time. Leithaug’s buoyant, acoustic songs, such as Lift You Upand Simple Things, are filled with equal measures of truth and encouragement. Other favorites include the title track and the beautiful opener Supermoon.” ~ CCM Magazine
