Announcing Newly Released 11 Song Album by Indie Artist Solveig Leithaug
Time is now available on CD, iTunes and Amazon Music.
Franklin, Tennessee: Solveig Leithaug (pronounced Sol-vey Light-houg) has been an internationally revered singer and songwriter since the 1980s. However, unlike most 80s sensations, this musical veteran is now releasing the greatest work of her career. Her signature vocals, laden with tender strength, deliver peaceful hope with impeccable musicality in this new 11-song collection.
Produced by prolific producer and songwriter, Steve Hindalong, Time weaves together the beauty and dissonance of life with brilliant precision. Leithaug is joined by award winning producer, artist and songwriter, Anthony Skinner, on the album’s 2nd single, “Get Together,” which he also co-wrote with her. “Lift You Up” was co-written with CCM songwriting icon, Cindy Morgan, who is featured on the album’s third cut. Adding to the musical landscape are breathtaking instrumentation, including Leithaug’s own masterful guitar savvy, Stu G on electric guitar, Matt Slocum on cello, the multi-instrument texturing of Jeff Taylor, and background vocals by Kelly Willard and Solveig's daughter Kari.
Norwegian journalist Olav Solvang in Vårt Land describes Supermoon, the opening cut, as fitting for an Eva Cassidy or Gillian Welch recording. And it has been said that, although Solveig has historically been considered a CCM artist, the freshness and authenticity infusing each heart-felt song launches her into another echelon with far broader appeal.
“These are songs that - when I sing them - help me lift my eyes a bit higher, center my heart, see the simple things,” Solveig says of the songs on Time. She refers to the collection as “eleven songs to lift your day, lower your shoulders, give you hope, bring you peace.” The songs embody empathy, faith, and the value of our important relationships, which make them particularly relevant at this time in our world’s history.
The album is now available for download wherever digital music is sold, and on CD at www.SolveigMusic.com and select musical retailers.
About Solveig: Solveig is a Dove Award-winning singer and songwriter, whose gentle-yet-powerful gift for communicating a song has won the hearts of audiences across the globe. Time is the fifteenth album of her career.
