Welcome to
My World / SISSEL

This is Sissel

Sissel was born in the beautiful city of Bergen, located on the west coast of Norway. She began her career in a t.v. choir at the early age of 14.

Sissel`s first album, “Sissel”, was released the same year and made her a national star overnight, winning the “Artist of the Year” at the Norwegian Grammy Awards, Spellemannprisen. With her first Christmas album released when she was just 18 years old, she became- to many- the “Voice of Christmas”. Her voice is considered a Norwegian national-treasure.

Sissel`s musical journey has led to success both nationally and internationally. She has gained praise and recognition all over the world for her angelic and powerful voice, and has over the years collaborated with several international artists such as opera legend Plácido Domingo and the American rapper Warren G. There are few genres Sissel has not done.



With a recording repertoire ranging from Schubert and Chopin, Lloyd-Webber and Morricone, ABBA to John Lord of Deep Purple, she is established as one of the world’s leading crossover sopranos. One might also recognize her voice from movies such as The Titanic, and The Lord of the Rings. Sissel’s music has touched millions.

In connection with her 50th birthday, Sissel released 5 albums called Reflections, which contain standard songs from the early 1920s up to our time.

With each song it was also recorded a Music video and a Talk video. 

In 2022 she started to release new songs in a project written and produced by herself and her husband Ernst Ravnaas.
The project is “5 trilogies” – two released in 2022 and the last three in the first half of 2023.


Summer at the farm
gives me peace
time feels slower here
Make all at ease
Soon we all will dance
the night is near
but it’s summertime
the light will still be here
Listen to Trilogy V - Summer Moods

Latest News From /SISSEL

Today the fifth Trilogy named – “Summer Moods” has been released.

The three summer songs each tell a story about summer experiences. One song was inspired by a picture of Edvard Munch, another from Sissel´s own experiences from summer life on a farm and the last from the bright and warm summer evenings.
