“Rita Lovise sings her way straight into the jazz vocal elite with her debut album “Craving Coffee”.

Armed with her own songs and brilliantly transported by musicians full of unpretentious skills, she blows the door off the hinges with a poetic and vocal force of expression that is rare.” 

Terje Mosnes (Norwegian national daily newspaper, Dagbladet)

Who is Rita Lovise?

Debutant Rita Lovise Haugseggen has thrilled the Norwegian media and brought audiences to tears with her unique and distinctive voice and music. After only six months of touring, The Norwegian National Public Broadcaster’s (NRK) jazz expert Erling Wicklund described her as a ‘prodigy’ and emphasized her bravery in ‘playing against all expectations’.
