Ulrika Ölund

Ulrika Ölund

Countrydoftande singer/songwriter

Med spelningar runt om i Europa och USA, kritikerhyllade skivsläpp samt en rad finalplatser i större musiktävlingar är Ulrika Ölund på väg att bli ett etablerat namn inom countrypop­-genren. Ulrikas debut­ EP kom 2008 och sedan dess har fyra singlar släppts, däribland P4­favoriten ”Trains”. Nu är hon aktuell med albumet ”Paper Planes and Skylines” – en resa från tonårens orädda rastlöshet till vuxenvärldens utmaningar. Här blandas Nashvilleinfluerat sound med modern pop. Glädje blandas med sorg och minnen med längtan.

Ulrika Ölunds musik kan närmast beskrivas som countrypop och repertoaren består av egenskrivet material samt vid önskemål även lånade tongångar, både på svenska och engelska.

”(..)she writes countrypop like she’s never done anything else. Ulrika Ölund who’s already an established name in the songwriter industry will continue take the stage with the world as an audience.” -Groove

“Her vocal performance is flawless. When she fires her charming smile, behind the microphone during a perfect chorus, she feels like a star” – Sundsvalls Tidning

“(..) it gets mighty emotional when Ölunds slow swaying melodies and calm cocktail of Nashville influenced country sound and modern pop is being played. Her shivering and beautiful voice echoes over her twanged chords. Really skilfully performed” – Dagbladet

” (..) music fans are going to love this young woman’s music and they will soon be tapping their toes, nodding their heads and when they learn the words they will be singing along to her songs, as they play on the radio.” -Riveting Riffs Magazine, Canada

“In her songs Ulrika tells real-life stories, about her home and about love. ‘Paper Planes and Skylines’ contains 10 tracks and has a mixture of traditional Nashvillesound and modern pop. A modern, happy country album that gets stuck in your head.”- Country Mag, DE

” ‘Paper Planes and Skylines’, is a charming slice of country pop that is as youthful as it is wise. Helmed by the heavenly lead single ‘Home’ (a tribute to the place she grew up and what it means to her), which dropped in June, the record is a 10-track collection of wonderfully-produced musings on love and heartbreak, and all the emotions that come with that. (..) Throughout the record Ulrika’s songwriting is particularly strong and finds her wise beyond her years, yet still innocent and naïve enough to be a relatable and likeable figure. Ulrika’s melodies shine in a manner that is understated but also very instant, highlighting her impressively watertight songcraft and very capable, insightful lyricism. Her voice, in its quivering, charming soprano, is versatile but very distinctive and pretty, and I’m sure she will go down a storm” – For The Country Record, US
