Jette Torp, a strong voice on the danish musicscene…

In 1992 Jette Torp was a part of the show “Biz” that was made by the comedian Finn Norbygaard. This show was showed on TV and suddenly all knew “Jette Torp”. In 1993 she went on tour with her own show “It´s Showtime Folks” The year after the coorporation with Finn Norbygaard continued, this time with the show “Musik & Fis”. This show got a massive success and now Jette Torp had established herself as singer and entertainer.

After the success with Finn Norbygaard she continues her soloshows and in 1995 Jette Torps goes on the road with her musicshow and she is getting great credits for this show. Over the next couple of years she is doing different musicjobs and also touring with the famous danish actor Kurt Ravn.

In 1997 she was contacted by the writer Ivar Lind Greiner who needed a singer for his song “Utopia” that was one of the 10 songs that should be in the Danish Music Festival Contest. At this contest she gets the second place, but most important of all, she meets the musicdirector Jan Glaesel.

They begin to make music together and in 1998 Jan Glaesel has a themesong to the DGI Festival called “Endnu En Dag” song by Jette Torp and this is followed up by the debutalbum “Here I Am”. This debutalbum is selling well and shortly after she is going on a tour together with Jan Glaesel and all the great sessionmusicians that is also playing on the album.

The coorporation with Jan Glaesel continues and in 1999 the next album is ready. “What If I Do” also hit the charts and again it is followed up by a tour. After this tour Jette Torp is still thinking about doing music with more folk inspiration and she is gathering a band that is trying this idea off on a little tour called “Special Moments”. This band is getting the cornerstone in the next album called “New Tracks” that are released in 2001, a great album taking the irish folk, the new country and west coast musicstyle together all brought out by a big help from Jan Kaspersen, one of the best singer/songwriters in Denmark.

It seems like the New Country musicstyle from Jette Torp is well adapted by listeners so the “New Tracks” album is followed up by the album “Snowflakes In Fire” late 2002 and on the cd the official themesong “Vi Er Paa Vej” from the womens eurohandball 2002 is added as a bonustrack.

In May 2003 Jette Torp and her band had a gig in the northern part of Denmark. This show was very special, because it was the last gig at “Collusseum”, a local theater- & culturehouse. With the musicians Jan K., Klaus Lorenzen, Kristian Fogh, Kristian Kold & Lars Wagner the showed were recorded by the TV channel TV2 with the main purpose to show clips from the show at the newsprograms at the station.

But this TV Session would more than just being a part of a program, the show was the beginning of a new Jette Torp release, and the result are the “Past The Point Of Rescue” album. On this album you can hear songs from her earlier 4 releases, but many of the songs are liveversions, some are new studiorecordings, and the titletrack are a brand new song from Jette Torp.

In 2007 Jette Torp released the solo album “MikrofonSangerinde”, her first album with danish songs.
