Sound from the north
The name Wikedhvani, which Josefins uses for the release of her music, came to life as a tribute to her Norwegian heritage, combining the first part of her last name with the sanskrit word for sound, creating "sound from the north". With personal lyrics, Josefin is not afraid to shine light on more difficult subjects such as depression and loneliness, something she also shares in talks about mental health.

In 2019 Josefin released "It is ok" which was originally written in Swedish with the name "Det finns en chans". The song is based on her own experiences living as a close relative to someone with mental illness and became the seed of new ideas for bringing more light to difficult topics in a creative way.
She has done several performances, mixing sharing personal stories with her own songs and she is now working on a longer version for stage performances. Curious to know more? Reach out.
I know that you are lost
You´re afraid of what will be
And the darkness that you linger in
Makes it difficult to see
And I know that it is hard
That you´ve pushed your limits far
But even though the pain is real
Please remember who you are
"5 STARS - A wonderful singer with the voice of an angel. Love her music."
