Great review of our Christmas concert in Stavanger Aftenblad
"The combination of talented people, good music, original program, splendid arrangements and beautiful vocal harmonies is nothing but great!" Kine Hult
Great review of the concert in Darmstadt 20.09.2015
Sober, insistent, convincing
DARMSTADT. The audience in the town church was really enthusiastic. The singer Randi Tytingvåg convinces with her simplicity and intensity.
Some of the pieces written by Tytingvåg made us think of Pete Seeger and the folk music of the early sixties ; she proves a competent view of the genre with a wonderful version of Gillian Welch song " Hard Times." Gerd Döring
Nice report from Egersund Visefestival 2015
"Randi Tytingvåg Trio , with Erlend Egeberg Aasland and Day Sindre Vagles, captivated the audience with their sincerty, and many of us were brought to tears during this special concert.
(..) After the concert I heard several people say that Randi Tytingvåg Trio was worth the whole festival ticket in itself!" Karianne Artnzen
Great review of THREE in Dag og Tid
"Tytingvåg is not only a great singer, she is also a songwriter with a strong message.
Her minimalistic phrasing is an expressive artform in itself."
Dag og Tid, Lars Mossefinn
Great concert review in Dalane Tidene
Here are some quotes from a great review of our concert at Egersund Visefestival 03.07.2015.
"Randi Tytingvåg Trio, with their intense and honest presence, gave the audience a beautiful music experience in the church on Friday.
(...) We actually prefer Randi Tytingvåg Trio's versions of the songs rather than Doris Day and The Everly Brothers. The three musicians from Rogaland have managed to add their very own, personal touch to these classics from the music history.
It was a true delight to hear them." Daland Tidene, Frøydis Bredeli
A fine French review of THREE
Here is a quote from a fine review of THREE in a French magazine in a recent edition:
"This sensual young Norwegian singer reveals
an irresistible charm. She is an acclaimed singer in Norway, and now she introduces herself to us with pop songs and some classic standards that revisit with humor and elegance. Accompanied with finesses on guitar, banjo and piano, she has made a very transparent recording. It has been recorded live by Per Ravnaas the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK)."
Great review of the concert at Orre 02.06
"Tytingvåg has a great range and dynamics in her voice; from a sparkling, clear soprano to a warm, husky colour in the lower range.The arrangements are elegant, almost like chamber music, with polyfonic lines accompanying the melody." Karl Fjogstad
More good reviews!
From the June issue of the Polish magazine Audio:
”Her voice is very gentle but at the same time convincingly strong and clear. When it blends with the beautiful backing vocals of her musicians it creates a sound that makes us feel like we are in a festival gig in the Midwest.” Cecary Gunminsky
Rzeczpospolita, a national daily newspaper in Poland:
”This is a minimalist production of high-impact.
Arranged with taste and with restrained virtuosity. Pay attention and put these songs to heart.”
The Italian online newspaper Affaritaliani:
” Three is a successful mix of country, emotional presence, folk, chamber music and jazz elements.
…persuasive, full of charm and slightly stinging..”
Great review at gaffa.dk
" A new Eva Cassidy - located in Norway."
" …a crystal clear voice with depth and authenticity."
"She demonstrates a natural, light control of her instrument and sound."
Wonderful review of the concert in Zehdenick 23.May
Sabine Slatosch from Gransee-Zeitung describes our music as heartfelt and sincere; a tribute to hope. She also emphasizes the subtle arrangements and mature craftsmanship of our trio.
More good reviews of THREE
DAGBLADET - 5 of 6:
"Essential, mellow and beatuiful." Fredrik Wandrup
Hamar Arbeiderblad - 5 of 6:
"..its fragile and minimalistic, but at the same time it has an intence core and fine balance." Geir Vestad
"Her own songs stand remarkably well between the classics."
And she also mangages to put her signature on the cover songs." Olav Solvang
One of the highlights at Maijazz
Jan Granlie/ salt-Peanuts.eu points out the relase concert of THREE as one of the highlights of this years Maiajazz festival.
"..a fantastic voice and a storytelling we believe in all the way..."

Great review in salt-peanuts.eu

Concert review from Oldenburg
"The music of Randi Tytingvåg is as if you walk on your tiptoes over a lake with very this ice - quiet and fragile, and incredibly intense. It can be described in one word: beautiful. (...)Balm for the soul." Thomas Haselier
Great reviews of THREE in Germany!

Great review in All About Jazz!
"...the pieces are closer to a type of Scandinavian chanson—strongly appealing while, at the same time, profound and touching." Andy Shaw
19 of 20 points for LIGHTS OUT in "Musik an sich"!
"Lights Out is delicate, dark and hopeful music with great lyrics. Randi Tytingvåg confirms that she is one the best singers from her homeland and beyond.
Recommendation!" Ingo Andruschkewitsch
6 of 6 points for LIGHTS OUT in Østlendingen:
"The first song "Blind Ignorance" is just incredibly beautiful. It strikes you right away; a classic folk-song that goes straight to your heart and soul." Geir Hovensjø
Great review of Lights Out in JAZZNYTT
"...singer-songwriter tradition with elements of blues and roots. (...) Very emotional and personal lyrics without getting private. (...) Randi Tytingvåg has a fantastic voice and she sure knows how to use ut. No release have made a stronger impact on me in a very very long time." Roy Ervin Solstad
Review in Rocktimes!
"The musical expression the artist here represents is so strong in its storytelling that it really gets to me. (...) Wonderful and intense music, this record is definitely on my "best of" list this year." Wolfgang Giese

Jan Ingvar Toft is in my opinion the best vocalist and storyteller in Norway - he is my absolute favourite! His presence and honesty makes a deep impact. I got to know him in 2006/07 when we worked together in Skyfri himmel at Rogaland Theatre.
I will make a guest appearance at his concert in Stavanger Concert House on the 22nd of January. I am really looking forward to it!

MOR: Eg konne vel tenkt meg å gå heile Den kinesiske mur
I am now working at Rogaland Theatre in the new play "MOR: Eg konne vel tenkt meg å gå heile Den kinesiske mur" by author Rønnaug Kleiva. The play is also starring the great actress Sally Nilsson. She is the mother and I am the daughter. A story that hopefully will touch and challenge our audience. The story is based on compositions from my two albums Let Go and RED. But it also includes a few completely new tracks. I have worked closely with Rønnaug Kleiva and translated the English lyrics into Norwegian.

Great review at NRK Rogaland:
