NEW ALBUM WITH MUSIC COLLECTIVE SOLEN ER SEXET
Lise has once again teamed up with her friend, the award-winning author and playwright Bjørn Rasmussen, and together they have established the music collective SOLEN ER SEXET. The two write lyrics and melodies together and have invited a wide selection of artists to participate. Working in the field of diversity, the SOLEN ER SEXET album has 10 producers – one for each song – with a slight predominance of women, nonbinaries and queers. Westzynthius and Rasmussen both sing on the album, as well as other co-writers and vocalists appear, among others O/RIOH, Solveig, GRO, Frederik Valentin, peachlyfe, Henrik Vibskov, and Hunbjørn. The album was released on June 3rd, 2022.
