Jeg er så glad for den opmærksomhed, mit album Simple Matters har fået efter sin release. Til sommer kan du opleve vores trio spille live bl.a. i Tivoli i København den 22. juli kl. 19. Og i Musikhuset i Aarhus 8. juni kl. 13. Mette Kirkegaard – originale sange (vokal, guitarer, piano) Mads Jørgensen (guitarer, dobro, elbas m.fl.) og Søren Pedersen (perc. m.fl.) Come to Copenhagen, 22 July, and listen to the sound of Nordic Americana music – in our beautiful amusement park Tivoli.

“Krystalklart og enkelt fra Austin”.
Det er en positiv Politiken-overraskelse at blive anmeldt på bagsiden af fredagens Kultursektion 2. nov. 2018. ❤️❤️❤️❤️Fire flotte hjerter af seks får mit album ‘Simple Matters’ af Kim Skotte. Jeg er beæret og glad. Tak til alle, der har bakket mig op på vejen.


“Crystalclear and simple from Austin” -Four fine Hearts in the Danish Politiken paper ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I feel honoured and blessed as it is difficult to be even mentioned here – and thanks to all who helped me – and thanks to Kostas and Johann Wagner and producer Patrick Herzfeld


Crystal clear and simple from Austin:

Simple Matters. Trubadur Records.♥♥♥♥review by Kim Skotte

Anyone who is into Nordic Americana should be in Austin, Texas now, which is where the Danish singer-songwriter Mette Kirkegaard has recorded ‘ Simple Matters ‘. While there she fine tuned  and refined her songs with the songwriter Kostas Lazarides in Montana. Since her debut album in 2007 Kirkegaard has honed her craft. Vocally she shines on ‘ Simple Matters ‘. Clarity and simplicity are the keywords on this album and Joan Baez would have surely approved of ” Simple matters ” . The songwriting is heartfelt but stays simple and clean without looosing itself in to many twists and turns. Where the tracks show greater depth and feeling her voice holds them high and clear ensuring the depth does not overshadow the enjoyment.

November 2016

Home again the first new concert awaits in Copenhagen Nov 26th at Kompasset Bar, Østerbrogade 103, a new place in Copenhagen. In April Mette returns to play in Musikhuset Aarhus, as well as a tour to New York is coming up Calendar


“Its the second time I visit Austin and its been a pleasure to go back,” says Mette. She used The House of Songs as a base for her time in Austin, TX, and went to the countryside to record at Signal Hills recording studio. She had a great cooperation with a local producer, and looking forward to the results and more information coming up soon.

As well, she finished a song with Austin based songwriter Johann Wagner betitled “Foreign Pines” – the song has also been recorded.
