Fresh from the success of her recent album release in the UK “Free Enough to Fall”, Tina Lie releases her new single “Twilight Hour”.
A rock-roots track that demonstrates Tina’s ability to use her distinctive, rich, raw voice to her full potential and her poignant lyrics evoke the best of her Americana, country, and rock-roots music style that she has become so well known world-wide for.

Originally from Lillehammer, now a firm favourite living in Norway, and with a flavour of country and a dash of rock ’n’ roll, tough and genuine, Tina tells it like it is in a way that is gravelly, gritty and to the point. Pulling no punches, Tina sings like she lives: Honestly
This comes through in her live shows, which take her music and her personality direct to her audiences in a way that is sometimes intimate, sometimes inspirational, sometimes humorous – but always 100% Tina.
Her performance at the Aamaal Blues Fest was called, “…a real treat…a fantastic performance; all the hair rose from our feet to our heads…[she] captured the audience’s hearts…” (Dag Koman, Hamar Bluesklubb). The press agrees; her performance at Norway’s Oktoberfest inspired one critic to say, “She has a voice that reminds you of a combination of Janice Joplin and [Danish star] Hanne Boel…she gave the chills to the audience… Tina delivered it with heart” (Østlendingen). Tina’s show at Norway’s Storm Festival prompted one critic to write, “What a voice, the audience was astonished” (Bård Kristiansen Festival manager Storm Festival).
And Tina’s performance at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club resulted in the unthinkable:
Football fans skipping a football match to see Tina’s show.
With eight American tours under her belt, and numerous Norwegian festival appearances, Tina has proven that she has international potential.
From her passion for performance from the studio to the stage, it is clear that Tina brings her lust for life to everything she does.
