Biografie

Signe Tollefsen is a US-Dutch singer-songwriter, settled in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Her music has been described as Folk Rock.

Growing up in Utrecht, the Netherlands, as the child of an American father and a Dutch mother, Signe Tollefsen started to sing at the age of 7. She went to the „Kathedrale Koorschool Utrecht“, the choirschool in Utrecht (other members were Colin Benders, better known as Kyteman). She composed her first songs on guitar at the age of 14, inspired by artists such as Janis Joplin, Edith Piaf, and Paul Simon. At 15, she moved to the UK to finish high school ( European School, Culham) and studied classical singing at the Royal Northern College of Music. She eventually gave up classical song, for studies in philosophy at the University of Hull, when she started singing her own songs in public at Hull’s infamous underground club „The Adelphi“. She moved back to the Netherlands to study medicine, but gave up and started studying at the Amsterdam Conservatory with René van Barneveld (‘Tres Manos’, the Urban Dance Squad). In 2005, she played with Stephen Malkmus (’S.M.’, Pavement) in Italy and Germany.
