Caroline Hitland - Folk / Pop / Easy Listening, Norway (ArenaCast E86)

About: Caroline Hitland ,very talented singer - songwriter.

"I'm a Norwegian singer and songwriter currently spending my days in Bratislava, Slovakia, recording my first album.
Music has always been my greatest passion, and after ending high school, I lived 3 years in Sweden taking a degree in Performing Arts, and later in Copenhagen studying vocal technique at Complete Vocal Academy.
Three years ago I had a turning point in my career, when I met guitar player Stanislav Pocaji from Slovakia. We started a band together, and since then we have played numerous concerts in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and Norway.
Stanislav has co-written with me all the songs for my first album."

1). What is the most exotic/extraordinary place you have ever performed at?
The most extraordinary place I've performed must have been in a small town in the middle of Slovakia, Banska Stiavnica. Here we played a gig in a small old gold mine in the wintertime. It was freezing, and I think I had 2 jackets on, but the atmosphere in this place was simply magical, and it still is one of my favorite gigs so far.

2). When you are 70 – how do you see your life?
I hope by the age of 70, I will have lived a long and happy life surrounded by the people I love. I want to live life spreading joy and love, to all the wonderful people I meet on my way, and I feel so lucky and blessed that I can do this with my voice, my lyrics, and with music.

3). If you could talk to any of the rock-stars, dead or alive, whom would you talk to and what would you ask?
One artist I truly would have loved to have met is Eva Cassidy. More than asking her a question, I would have loved to see a concert of hers, and tell her how much her songs and her way of singing has meant to me.

4). What countries and cities would you like to visit the most during the tour?
I would love to tour the United States, and of course my own country- Norway. Other cities I would love to perform in is Berlin, London, Paris and Copenhagen. Japan would also be amazing...!

5). Which famous band/artist you would be glad to share the stage with?
Sharing the stage with Glen Hansard would be simply amazing. He must be one of my all time favorite live artist and songwriter.
