Lina Nyberg is one of Sweden’s most creative and innovative jazz singers. For about 20 years she has been attracting consistent and widespread attention, starting with the debut in 1993 with the duo CD Close together with late pianist Esbjörn Svensson until the release of her 18th album Terrestrial in 2017, that was also the third part of a spectacular trilogy of double albums including Linas music for Big band, String Quartet and Symphony Orchestra.

In 2019 she will tour during summer with her band in Lebanon, Egypt, Amman and Sweden in a special project with Lebanese singer Tania Saleh, Egyptian violinist Nancy Mounir and portuguese trumpet player Susana Santos Silva. 

Lina Nyberg Band – intuitive, brave and creative, has toured all over the globe and celebrates this year 10 years together as a band.

In 2018 she started up a new duo collaboration together with the brilliant Swedish pianist Daniel Karlsson. After a very successful premiere in March at The Vortex in London (through the Jazzalloy-project initiated by Musikcentrum) they have decided to make an album that will be released in the fall.
