Splashgirl Splashgirl

Splashgirl is the young, exciting norwegian alternative piano trio featuring Andreas Stensland Løwe (piano, acoustic guitar, Casio SK5), Jo Berger Myhre (double bass, zither, kantele, radio) and Andreas Knudsrød (drums, percussion, mandolin).

Splashgirl's music is 100% honest, complex in its simplicity but first and foremost overwhelmingly beautiful.

Splashgirl released its debut album in March, 2007, Doors. Keys. (AIM). The disc further develops a fusion of contemporary acoustic jazz and chamber music known to fans of musicians including Christian Wallumrød, Trygve Seim and Paul Bley, but taken further with references to post‐rock bands like Mogwai and Sigur Rós, as well as 20th century composers like Eric Satie, Steve Reich and Morton Feldman.

In May 2008, Splashgirl began recording its second album, Arbor, which demonstrated a slight change of style. Still acoustic, the music took an even more minimalistic and defined collective approach where the use of long, sustained sounds bound together a broad palette of string and percussion instruments.

Pressure (Hubro) followed in 2011, an album which All About Jazz's Chris May described as, “Deeply spiritualized and altogether irresistible. As the Arctic ice cap retreats, Nordic jazz takes another step forward.”


Andreas Stensland Løwe: piano, acoustic guitar a.o. (b. 1983). Andreas is Splashgirl's primary composer, as well as a composer of various commissioned works. He also plays piano, keyboards, electronics and guitar in bands like Post, Lama, L/W and Pilcrow, to name a few.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
