CHRISTY RINGROSE

Christy Ringrose is a Scottish-Norwegian singer-songwriter who grew up in Trondheim, Norway. She has a unique style that echoes both folk music, jazz and pop. Her first solo album DANCING WITHOUT SPACE (2019) explores a young woman´s wonder and discoveries about the world. While her warm voice fits a folky tradition, her songwriting which is both quirky and thoughtful, falls into a similar category as artist such as Suzanne Vega, Katie Melua and Regina Spector. 

 

Christy is currently living in Edinburgh and performs in both Edinburgh and Trondheim, Norway.

Many friends and neighbors were like under a spell during Christy's concert. She is a charismatic, warm, versatile and passionate performer who creates a strong connection with all ages.

Christy wrote and composed the song "Some Friends" for the documentary "Norveggian" (2018).When I heard the tune and lyrics for the first time, it just melted my heart.
