“...her creativity shows no signs of abating.
In fact, with The Clouds, a project featuring a tentet of first-rank colleagues, Nyberg is poised to reinforce her place at the vanguard of chance-taking European jazz musicians.” All About Jazz, 2020 https://www.allaboutjazz.com/the-clouds-lina-nyberg-hoob-records 

In 2018 she started up her new duo collaboration together with the brilliant Swedish pianist Daniel Karlsson, and they had a very successful premiere at The Vortex in London (through the Jazzalloy-project initiated by Musikcentrum).

“Going from dramatic and cloudy to bright, Nyberg and her band seemed like extensions of one another, despite the music’s unpredictable idiosyncrasies.” Down Beat Magazine
