Cornelia Dahlgren is a Swedish singer, songwriter and producer known by the stage name Cornelia. She runs her own independent label called Camp Mozart. Cornelia participated in the first season of Swedish Idol 2004, however dropped out of the show in the final stages as she did not consider the manufactured approach to the music true to what she was about.
Dahlgren sang in choirs, played in bands, performed on stage and had a brief spell as a songwriter before creating a music label, Camp Mozart, as a home for her own musings. She debuted with the EP Capsule. She re-located to London from her homeland and released two EPs in 2011 called By The Fire/Now and Hereafter and Aquarius Dreams. Another single Stormy Weather was released in liaison with Exceptional Records in 2012.
Dahlgren has already caught the ear of José González, who declared she has a ‘charming voice’[this quote needs a citation] and music mogul Guy Sigsworth who described her as ‘wonderful’.[this quote needs a citation]
In 2012 she collaborated with Portico Quartet and Scratcha DVA. The song Steepless was written by Cornelia and Portico Quartet. Steepless was released on Portico Quartet’s third and self-titled album end of January 2012. Pretty Ugly, written and produced by Scratcha DVA and Cornelia, became the title track for Scratcha DVA’s album on Hyperdub the same year. It had been described by Mary Anne Hobbs as ‘a beautiful track with a dazzling sound’.[this quote needs a citation]
Apart from being an independent songwriter, artist and producer Cornelia is also an established voice over artist for cartoons/anime.
