Silje Nes is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from Leikanger, Norway. FatCat Records first became aware of her through a unique and charming demo she sent them in early 2006. Silje grew up in the tiny town of Leikanger, in Sognefjord, the largest fjord in Norway. In 2000, she moved to the rainy town of Bergen, and for the past few years has been living in Berlin. Silje has previously played in an indie pop band, and other highlights from a diverse musical background include playing timpani in an orchestra and bass drum in a marching band.
