Thea was quickly booked for the festivals By:larm, Øya and Hove that summer and performed on several national TV channels and radio channels. More radio singles followed and her concerts at the Øya Festival and By:larm received great reviews and were well attended by both the audience, the press and the music industry. Her debut album “Strangers And Lovers” was released to rave reviews in August 2014. The album also got her nominated to an Norwegian Grammy. In 2014, she toured as supporting act for Sivert Høyem (Madrugada) and played at the Nobel Peace Prize Save The Children’s concert in Oslo.
Thea is currently in the process of writing her next album due 2016.
