Tuva Finserås is a Norwegian-born artist. She started her musical career in Melbourne, where her encounters with Australian nature, a multicultural environment and diverse art left its mark on her song writing. After nearly 5 years in Melbourne, she returned back to her home country Norway to continue creating music, but also to move a step closer to the world of film.
Tuva creates a never-ending and bewildering range of music, every note composed and arranged by her, all with her slightly off-kilter, intriguingly odd Scandinavian sensibility - a complete, 360-degree musician. Her music is hard to slot into a category and she isn’t concerned with staying true to a specific style, but instead prefers to experiment with elements from different genres. Her music is nonetheless clearly recognisable, carrying her characteristic sound form song to song.
She likes to write songs in Bb minor, and often animals appear in them.
Tuva's songwriting won her a spot at the annual 50 Songs in 5 Days founded by Specific music in partnership with APRA AMCOS. Her debut EP was released in June 2018, produced by Benjamin McCarthy. (Alex The Astronaut, G Flip, Gordi, nyck), who was instantly captivated after seeing her show in early 2017.
Tuva’s early musical days were fuelled classical piano, Norwegian folk music and composition. She found she needed to spread her wings and a change of scenery to further pursue her passion for the arts.
