ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The singer Lena Måndotter toured to some of Sweden's most known venues in 2013 and the cd "Live at the Cathedral" is a collection of some live-recordings from this successful tour. Her intention was to perform songs that, through the years, have been very important to her and that her faithful audience often requested her to perform.
The artistic intention was to keep an intimate and organic acoustic sound where the voice and each instrument was given a warm and atmospheric space; just a trio with vocals, cello, guitar and bouzouki.
The cd contains some of her own compositions and also interpretations of other songwriters like Eliza Gilkyson, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Nicks and Townes Van Zandt.
Lena Måndotter has travelled and lived in many countries, and therefore the cd also contains some Greek and Hebrew hymns; some recorded with just her solitary voice in the grand chambers of the cathedral.
Her co-musicians on these live-recordings are Åsa Gjerstad (cello and harmony vocals) and Pierre Engström (guitars and bouzouki).
The cd was recorded live by Ola Glans, mixed by Lotta Wenglén Margit Music Studio and mastered by Håkan Åkesson Nutid Studio in Sweden. CD-release by Kameleont Production (LMCD007)

PRESS-CLIPS:
"Lena Måndotter's singing style is very intuitive and exciting. A beautiful combination of the warmth of the solitary voice and tasteful musical arrangements." SWEDISH NATIONAL RADIO P2, Marie Vesterholm
"Excellent songs, in the same musical spirit as CowboyJunkies. Lena Måndotters dark and lightly veiled voice also reminds me of the singer Margo Timmis...the musical way of mixing with lots of cello gets me finally on my knees." MUSIC-MAGAZINE GROOVE (SWE)
Lena Måndotter interprets and performs Leonard Cohen's songs with great warmth and deep intimacy. All concerts have been sold out since she started the tour 2006". SWEDISH NATIONAL RADIO P2
"sensual and dark dreaming vocals" BERLINGSKE TIDENDE (DANISH NATIONAL NEWSPAPER)
"In the year 2008 Lena Måndotter released a very appreciated cd with interpretations of "Songs of Leonard Cohen". This follow up cd "Songs From The RIver" is a collection of her own songs and also interpretations of classic folksongs. Lena's dark, both mellow and intensive vocals binds it all together and creates a sense of wholeness. Her own compositions are very impressive and the musical instrumentation is intuitive and in perfect understanding with her singing. This cd "Songs From The River" is one of my favourites, just like her Cohen-cd. Now I am looking forward to a cd with only compositions of Lena Måndotter. Her musical talent and capability is so obvious". LIRA MUSIC-MAGAZINE
”I really like the Swedish singer Lena Måndotter’s deep and intimate interpretations of Leonard Cohen’s songs. The sparse and tasteful musical arrangements also leave the necessary space for her strong though sensitive vocals. Acoustic guitar, bouzouki and cello mirror very well the atmosphere of each song. It is difficult to choose only one favourite-song but if I could only choose one it would have to be ’By The Rivers Dark’. It suits Lena’s voice perfectly!” JARKKO ARJATSALO ­ THE LEONARD COHEN FILES
"Lena Måndotter singing style is very poetic and it is in the world of song and poetry she deeply belongs" KVÄLLSPOSTEN/EXPRESSEN, SWEDISH EVENING NEWSPAPER
"Splendid! The most intimate and heart-warming concert I've heard in a long time. Lena Måndotter's voice and singing is perfect for Leonard Cohen's songs." SKÅNSKA DAGBLADET (SWEDISH NEWSPAPER)
"an exciting band with big potential. The music is a tasteful and alternative mix of folkmusic, pop, rock and classical avantgarde-music; a seductive musical blend. Seeing them live at the Hultsfred- festival, they're doing an excellent gig...Through their talented musicianship one realises this is profound art! ROCKPARTY MAGAZINE, (SWE)
"an evocative collection of songs...well put together, tightly connected around the themes of hope and loss, love and despair...the musical form is in the singer songwriter tradition...dramatic and
fateful...very impressive in many ways" SYDSVENSKA DAGBLADET (SWEDISH NEWSPAPER)
