Linnea Krepper is a name to remember. With her big voice and strong personality, this girl from Sweden has managed to get her music to the USA on her own, and several radio stations have already fallen for her pop-sounding tunes.
Music has always been a big part of Linnea´s life. Ever since she was a little girl, she´s been singing in choirs and performing in musicals, dance shows and plays. At every graduation she took the stage and dazzled the audience with her strong voice and charisma. Growing up she was shy and timid, but that soon disappeared during college when she realized the great potential she had, and that´s when her vision of becoming an established international artist started to form itself. As an 18 year old she moved out of her hometown to go and study music. After some years of studies she started to make concrete plans in making connections with people in the business, writing songs and take every opportunity to perform for an audience.
The process to be the woman she is today has been long, but now she can proudly say that she knows who she is, both as an artist and as a person. Linnea has a certain authority that reflects in her music, and a rare mix of power and softness in her voice, which creates a unique sound. With her independent and driven personality she´s already played live on Swedish radio, performed at one of the biggest music festivals in the country, been interviewed by several Nordic magazines and released her own songsAdd New.
Today Linnea is just in the beginning of her future career as an artist. Her hunger and fearlessness will take her where she wants to go. Even though the music business is a tough industry, the goal will always be to inspire others to fight for their dreams and have the courage to invest in what they truly love.
Check out this amazing interview we did with her after Music Clout sent this talent our way. This interview is about her single “Color Me Blue”.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
Color Me Blue is a strong track which, what I think, many people can relate to. It also has, what I believe, many of the qualities your looking for in a hit; it´s catchy, has a clear message, a strong melody and a mainstream sound.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
The song is a good reflection of me as an artist and it also has a similar sound as the other single I released at the same time.
What was the writing process for the song?
My best friend, an American singer/songwriter and I wrote Color Me Blue together many years ago. We wanted a catchy and strong melody with a memorable chorus.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
The lyrics for the track is about letting go of many of the expectations, from both society and yourself, regarding how you should feel in certain situations. You don´t have to put up a facade and pretend that everything´s alright when it´s not. With all of our social media channels, many of us wants to show of a “perfect” life when the reality really is something else.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I want to tell a story when I perform. If the listener feel something when I sing I´ve succeeded. It doesn´t matter what kind of emotion it is, that´s the beauty with music, it´s personal and you can just let yourself feel and think whatever you want to. I have a quite rare mix of strength and softness in my voice and my expression on stage is very open and personal.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
This track is very much like me as a person and as an artist. It represents strength, confidence and courage but with a humble touch.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
The video for Color Me Blue was released only a few days ago, June 20th. I wanted a simple and tasteful video that shows Nordic surroundings and natural beauty. I also wanted to show that I´m going towards something, that I´m on my way up in my music career and that I´ll go wherever it may take me.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
Through my music I want to give people strength and courage to stand up and fight for their dreams, just like I always have.
