Our cover star Aurora definitely is one of the biggest newcomers 2015. The elfish Norwegian singer – who just turned 19 by the way – seems to float between two worlds: in reality she’s touring and having a song in a TV commercial, in her mind she’s still in her forest, listening to Leonard Cohen and inventing imaginative stories that might become songs. When she was a child she already began composing songs, a skill that almost reached perfection nowadays. Regardless all the success Aurora Aksnes never forgets her roots or looses her down-to-earth attitude – even if her head might be in the clouds. We had a tiny chat with the “Running with the wolves” singer:

If there were life on any other planets where would you go?
A planet where the gravity is so low that i could fly.
One thing most people don’t know about you:
I love mathematics. I love chemistry and physics.
What would you like to say to your future-you?
I hope that I will be as attached to the ground as I am now. Because I think I never know what will happen and it might become really big… And I really hope that I will stay close to my family and myself and not to forget where i come from. Stay down to earth, that’s the most important thing!

You’re a big fan of Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of The Rings – who’s your favorite/the most inspiring character?
Darth Vader is mean, but really cool. And I like Sirius Black. However my favorite role is Sam in ‘Lord of the Rings’: He’s Frodo’s best friend and he’s the one who supports him all the way– and he even carries him in the end of the movie! Sam’s a real hero. He never complains, he just makes everything possible. He’s amazing because he doesn’t really get the honor, but he’s so brave.

What would be the worst thing to lose?
I would hate to loose the joy in making music. Seeing music just as a job would be horrible. And I’m really afraid to loose the people I love. So the answer is basically love!
One skill you would like to learn:
Everything. I love to learn.
What would you like to change in future?
I always want to be kind to the people around me. I want to be a good person to be around. Now I have a big chance to be heard through my songs and I want to use that power. People would listen to me and to what I have to say. I want to be myself and inspire people to be themselves too. The world would be even a more wonderful place when people would be honest, accept other people as they are, accept themselves – and just be kind.
