Ida Maria Biography

Born Ida Maria Børli Sivertsen on July 13, 1984, in Nesna, NORWAY, a university town of fewer than 2,000 people near the Arctic Circle, began her musical training with piano lessons at the age of 14. Ida later moved to Stockholm where she developed a distinctive sound, a combination of raw garage-Rock, hummable choruses, gamine good looks and deliberately provocative lyrical themes, that saw her swiftly become an indie favourite winning coveted slots at 2008's Isle Of Wight and Glastonbury festivals.

The Scandinavian sensation's first album, "Fortress Round My Heart", was initially released in July 2008 on Sony BMG, it debuted inside the U.K. Top 40 Albums chart; the disc is an effective batch of catchy choruses and high-octane Rock tunes, including the British top 20 hit single "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked". In early 2009, the album was re-released in an updated edition and subsequently the aforementioned single climbed into the top 30 of the U.S. Hot Modern Rock Tracks. This was followed by the minor hit single "Oh My God".

 Featuring the single "Bad Karma", Ida Maria released her second album, "Katla", in the fall of 2010 in Norway and in mid-2011 in the rest of the world.
