Chilling, colorful, unconventional. This is how you would probably portray the northern lights. It is also a quite correct description of another atmospheric phenomenon of the upper latitudes - the voice and music of Estonian jazz singer Hedvig Hanson. “You Bring Me Joy” is her fifth solo album and second international release.

“There's something very “mojito” about her jazz - cool like Nordic ice, refreshing like mint, with sweet and sensual Brazilian influences in her vocals... “ - Alex Kruzin (Billboard)
