There is a significant musician in Norwegian rock who is no longer among us. Anne Grete Preus is best known for her distinctive rock with deep and well crafted lyrics. Her most well-known album Millimeter came in 1994. That same year she was awarded three Spellemann awards, for female artist of the year, album of the year and hit of the year. One of her most famous songs is Månens Elev, from the mentioned album.
In 2013, the artist was awarded the honorary award during the Music Awards, and she was also inducted into the Rockheim Hall of Fame in Trondheim. Anne Grete Preus was known as an extremely warm and inclusive human being.
Anne Grete Preus also had an affiliation with Sørlandet through her work at the University of Agder. In February 2017, she began as Professor II at UiA (University In Agder), where her job was to teach the young songwriters at the Department Of Rhythmic Music to write music. A pretty important music mission!
Anne Grete Preus marked Norwegian music for forty years. Ever since the record debut with the folk rock band Veslefrikk (1978-1982) and as a front figure in the post-punk band Can Can (1983-1987) she has had great impact as a composer, musician and songwriter.
