elsesolheim.com is an international music blog driven by me, Else Solheim. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Studies and a Master’s Degree in Journalism. elsesolheim.com does not receive any form of financial support. In fact, this site is a huge expense for me. But, I love music, I live for music, and thats why I keep this site going. I do get accreditation for some shows or festivals, but I pay for most of the concerts myself (by having a part-time job at a clothing store).
In 2010 I was picked out of hundreds of applicants to blog for the Roskilde Festival. Which is the biggest music-festival in Scandinavia.
In 2011 I became one of VICE Scandinavia’s bloggers.
Around November 2015 I changed this site to English, so the old posts will be in Norwegian. Here you will get anything from music reviews: concerts, albums, EP’s, singles etc., music recommendations, and I also post about some artists and bands that happen to end up in my inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org). I do write my opinion though. I’m not claiming to have any sort of music-expertise. I can like something, I can love something, I can also hate something. Feel free to email me your music (at your own risk ;)).
I’ve also done photography and head of Social Media for Det Akademiske Kvarter in Bergen (2012 – 2014).
