In 1996, Sophie Zelmani shot to stardom when Sony put out her eponymous debut album. The hit Always You was in the film My Best Friend’s Wedding (Min Bedste Vens Bryllup), and Stand By can be heard in the film Independence Day. The music is folky pop, in the style of singers like Jewel and Sheryl Crow. This was success, but Zelmani’s shy nature did not permit of long interviews, and concerts were also thin on the ground, although she has fans all over the world. On the other hand she has produced loads of music, always with guitarist and producer Lars Halapi at her side. He helped start Bo Kasper’s Orkester and has subsequently produced for a long list of Swedish artists. Up through the noughties, Sophie Zelmani went on topping the Swedish charts. Her delicate voice and acoustic backing is more folk and country than assembly line pop. Last year Sophie Zelmani released her 11th studio album, My Song, and it will be songs from this album she will present for us here at Tønder Festival.
