Henrik Høven – The new Scandinavian male voice in pop music:
Henrik never actually became an artist, he kind of always just was one. At nine years old he won a talent competition at school, and at 13 he came in second in a national singing competition, which led to an extensive tour. In 2013 he also landed the role of the Snake in a production of Oliver Twist at Oslo Nye, a well-known theatre in Oslo. At 15 he began releasing his own singles after the band leader of Karpe, one of Norway’s most significant groups, mentored him.
Henrik, as an actor, has also been active, most recently in the teen series “Blank”, a follow up to the sensation NRK series “Skam”, where he played the member of the fictional band, “Hernandez”. Henrik is now currently combining his musical career and his studies in Songwriting and Production at Kristiana University College in Oslo.
New single “Sad Boy (Get Better!) is now out on all platforms
The multi-talent from the Oslo area has had a team of Scandinavian creative collaborations on his upcoming songs and recordings in Oslo. The past year Henrik has spent plenty of time writing songs for himself and others, which you will hear more about very soon. The corona-lockdown has given him time to focus and sharpen his work in the preparation for his upcoming releases in late 2020 and early 2021.
“Some of the songs took a while, and some only took a couple of minutes to write”
Henrik Høven says about the process.
