Behind the pseudonym ‘Maud’ stands artist, producer, songwriter and singer Kristine Hoff who grew up in Northern Norway, where the sun almost never shines or never sets. Since making waves as one of the brightest new names coming out of the legendary Norwegian music scene, Maud’s undeniable potential secured funding support from the Arts Council Norway and The Royal Norwegian Ministry of Culture – solidifying her status as one of Scandinavia’s most promising musical up-and-comers and nationwide spins on NRK P3 radio and coveted featuring on festival line-ups at the likes of Tallinn Music Week, Insomnia, Sørveiv, Trænafestivalen and Bodø Jazz Open.
