JOSEFIN WINTHER 2020
Josefin Winther har siden sin debut i 2006 høstet stor anerkjennelse for sine liveopptredener. Allerede som 19-åring fikk hun platekontrakt og ga ut EP samme år. Winther har siden den gang gitt ut fem studioalbum, høstet strålende kritikker og gjort suksess som låtskriver, blant annet med Norges vinnerlåt i MGP 2014. Høsten 2019 debuterte hun med sitt første norskspråklige album, turnerte i Canada og Norge og fikk overveldende publikumsrespons på sine liveopptredener.
Hun er kjent for sin gripende tilstedeværelse og kraft på scenen, hvor hun kan fange et hvert rom alene med gitaren. Signaturen er intense liveopptredener, hvor hun rett som det er deler fra sine tanker og følelser. Dette gjør hun like gjerne med et smil om munnen som med en tåre i øyekroken.
Den norskspråklige debuten [Uendelig lys. Uendelig mørke.] ble løftet frem som et kunstnerisk vendepunkt for henne. Anmeldere trakk frem både musikkvideoen til tittelsporet og albumet i sin helhet, og det høstet femmere hos flere anmeldere.
I 2020 følger hun opp med en norskspråklig EP, og med to ferske utgivelser i bagasjen kommer hun til å turnere med et akustisk soloformat både i Norge og Canada, I tillegg blir det utstrakt konsertvirksomhet i et storslagent, men nærgående bandformat på norske festivaler og utvalgte konsertscener.

Spring 2018 she released her new single "Moving forward" collaborating with label "Apollon records" on re-releasing her latest album.
