Paperwing is the Swedish artist, composer and producer Jenny Soovik. Born and raised by two loving jazz musicians, Jenny is an uncompromising and unbound artist who feels quite powerless against the gravitational pull from the world of music. It seems she can do little else than find outlets for it.
After years of studying music at Sweden’s most prestigious conservatories levels leading to a BA degree in improvisation, Jenny set out as a solo artist and producer. After releasing two independent records which gained critical praise from CLASH Magazine, Scandipop and more, Paperwing was subsequently headhunted by Swedish label Ninetone, where she released the album Equilibrium in 2020.
Paperwing has been described with the words stunning, intelligent and unique. Legendary LA producer and musician Peter Bunetta once met her at a listening session in Stockholm:
- I discovered Paperwing's music on a trip to Sweden and was taken instantly by her song and vocal musicality, sensibilities and elegance. Her professional approach and ability to seek originality was obvious with every song she played for me. I'm a fan.
Paperwing writes about big feelings and small things - stories of love, life and heartbreak, human nature, mother earth and all the mysteries of the universe. Things that have touched her heart, all draped in a suit of goosebump inducing avant-garde pop.
