On Winter Nights Rebekka Bakken interprets Christmas carols and songs for the wintry season with her powerful and expressive
voice which easily encompasses three octaves. Among other songs, she sings Calling All Angels, In The Bleak Midwinter and
Silent Night, and also adds a different, a gentle and romantic glow, to Last Christmas by Wham!. Because Rebekka Bakken is
not only a singer but a composer, too, she wrote seven of her own songs for Winter Nights, perfectly rounding out the contemplative
“I’ve always dreamed of doing a winter album because I adore the winter and composing songs for the holiday season. A never-ending
stream of these songs seems to pour out when I delve into this part of my music-making. I've been singing Kyrie Eleison for
months and I heard my neighbour whistling the melody when I was out in my garden.”
The songs the artist has chosen, both by others and from her own pen, reveal the singer’s passionate yet also unconventional
relationship with the holiday season. “This time of year can have so many aspects, it can be both heaven and hell at the same
time. I like the Christmas message, the message of newborn awareness. The things I associate with Christmas are full of joy
and beauty. But sometimes you also have to make your way through the holiday season in difficult circumstances. Christmas
gives more intensity to your life then, too.”
