Dagny Norvoll Sandvik grew up in a musically gifted family in Tromsø, Norway however it wasn’t until later that she truly found her passion for songwriting when she moved to London in her early twenties.
Her climb to international attention was meteoric, following the release of Backbeat in 2015. Since then she has grown to become one of Norway’s most exciting artists, live performers and songwriters – with over 450 million streams amassed, sold out tours, and critical acclaim by everyone from Nylon and Billboard to The Guardian and Harpers Bazaar, within the span of just a few short years. Carrying on this unstoppable momentum, Dagny’s debut Ultraviolet EP received unanimous praise from critics with features such as Billboard’s 10 Pop Stars To Watch In 2017, and VEVO’s Ones To Watch 2017.
She joined forces with SEEB in 2018 to deliver the hit Drink About – a track streamed over 200 million times by 2019, recently winning an award for most streamed and most played song in Norway. From working with world-renowned producers such as Steve Aoki to co-writing for Katy Perry, it’s clear that Dagny is on the precipice of stardom – if not, there already.
Dagny’s latest single ‘It’s Only A Heartbreak’ comes from her long-awaited second half of her debut album ‘Strangers / Lovers’ which is set to release on Friday, October 2nd.
