Back in 2018 Copenhagen natives, singer songwriter Trinelise Væring and multiple Danish Music Award-winner jazz saxophonist Fredrik Lundin, handpicked an ensemble of musicians from very different walks of the Scandinavian music scene for what they imagined to be a special project for one special occasion only.
Three years and a covid-pandemic later they lead an ebullient 10 piece powerhouse of a band with a new album on the way and enough live concerts already under the belt to call themselves a touring band. 

With a genre fluid approach to songwriting and an all together unconventional instrumentation with 4 vibrant singers, fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, cittern, saxophones, flutes, 2 drummers and double bass, Tone of Voice Orchestra offers adistinctive and fresh new sound.
Catchy hooklines, shamanic beats, evocative lyrics in combination with strong individual contributions from each band member, create a range of expressions spanning from the enchanted to the mundane, from the sorrowful to the ecstatic.

Tone of Voice Orchestra comfortably straddles the divide between multiple genres such as Scandinavian roots, jazz and indie-pop, while blending the famous Scandinavian sound with global folklore, Americana and North African textures as well as a variety of indie-pop and alternative folk bands. All of these influences from i.a. Eastern European feed into one another and grow lush new forms when added to Tone of Voice Orchestra’s melting pot.
