Torun Eriksen (born 8 January 1977 in Lunde, Telemark, Norway) is a Norwegian Jazz singer,[1][2] whose musical talents first came to prominence as a music student at high school in Norway. From the age of six, she sang in various gospel choirs, and by the age of 19 had become a featured soloist. With a background steeped in soul, jazz, pop, and through her choral experience she began writing her first compositions. A major influence was the world of jazz standards via the Real Book. After moving to Oslo in 1997, she enrolled at the «Norwegian Institute for Stage and Studio» (NISS).[3]
