I grew up in the middle of a big forest. You could shout without anyone hearing you, which is something wonderful. For me, everything began with quietness, with the quietness of nature surrounding me. This will always remain rooted deep within me, explains Josefine Cronholm, the Swedish singer, composer and resident of Copenhagen for many years. On hearing her ACT debut, Songs of the Falling Feather, listeners will quickly understand what she means by this. There hasn t been a singer like her - someone who makes quietness so enchantingly audible - for a long time. Cronholm s clear, high voice comes from out of nowhere, developing and weaving around sounds and melodies with a calmness which is quite unique.
