Bente Smaavik



Mid-Norwegian Rocks first lady releases new single!

        "STILL STRONG" 
          Coming  out may 22. May 2015

Rock singer Bente Smaavik got a new release coming up. There she shows new and exciting aspects of herself, while she further refines her vocal qualities and emerge as an even more complete and mature artist.
The title track from her upcoming album "Still Strong" is released on every digital media in 27 countries. This is a great ballad with melody in focus and major radio potential! She now returns to her roots in the seventies when her career started.
Bente Smaavik’s musical career stretches back to 1978 and the punk band Per Kleppe og Skattesnyterne. After this her career continued in bands like BS on the Rocks, Perfect Crime, Four Jets and Blonde on Blonde. In 1989 the latter band was named “The Artist of Rock in Central Norway” by the newspaper Arbeider-Avisa.
The Trondheim artist Bente has also been singing/working with prominent musicians and bands like Bernie Marsden (ex-Whitesnake), Joe Lynn Turner (ex-Rainbow and ex-Deep Purple), TNT and Jan Holberg Project.
Her first solo CD, “Mature” came out in 2004. One of the songs from this CD, “Leaves In The Wind,” was five weeks of the Norwegian musical hit list Norsktoppen.
A compilation CD, “1979-2011″, came in 2012, and clearly documents the range of Bente’s musical career, and also shows how well she masters many genres, although she in her musical soul is definitely a rocker.
The past two years she has been one of two backup singers for TNT where Tony Harnell was back on vocals on the Intuition tour 2014 .
Bente are now recording new songs for a new release. She does this in collaboration with her husband Victor Cito Borge, MasterofPopHits (known as the bass player from bands like TNT, Autopulver and Jack in the Box). Bente has now taken a new and exciting step in her career, because now she herself is writing most of the the lyrics to their songs, while Borge are composing the melodies.
The first single from Bente’s new release was titled “Sweet Summer Feeling” and the other “Meant to be”.The third single was released on her wedding day august 16. – 2014. The song is called “Samklang” (“Bells in harmony”) a duet together with her husband to be, Victor Cito Borge.
Published by H10 Productions and recorded in studio Masterof PopHits.
