Øyunn is the artist name of drummer, artist, composer and singer Siv Øyunn Kjenstad. Her music is rough, refreshing, open and well-defined, delicious grooves and melodies with exciting rhythmic and harmonic quirks. The songs have clear themes, as well as openness, and are played with spontaneity and playfulness. Live, she plays solo or invites various co-musicians to join in.  As a drummer she’s known for her ability to listen to and follow up her co-musicians, as well as being a distinct and clear voice herself. Her lyrics are honest, and aim to inspire and uplift people to be more kind to themselves, follow their inspiration and speak up.
