Sissel's New Manager

"Sissel exchanges her manager Arne Svare, her partner through 17 years, with Secret Garden manager Barry Matheson and veteran producer Bjørn Nessjø now that she will gamble more on classical crossover music," --translated from today's VG (Verden's Gang).

"To take over the responsibility for the career of such a great artist as Sissel Kyrkjebø is a big challenge which we readily take up," said Barry Matheson to VG, who has been partly responsible for making Secret Garden a huge star in the classical crossover genre.

Bergens Tidende
predicted last week that Nessjø would take over management (with possibly Matheson as well).
