Profile Anna Viktoria Louise Hoffsten  is a Swedish singer , composer , lyricist, vocal , harmonica player and holds an honorary doctorate at the University of Linköping . She is the daughter of Gunnar Hoffsten (jazz trumpet player) and married with the actor Dan Bratt. Her career started as singer in the popular Swedish band Clas Yngström & Sky High in the mid 80’s. After she left Sky High she started her solo career. Supported by one of Sweden’s most popular rock band at the time, Wilmer X, she released her debut album 1987, Genom Eld och Vatten.

The subsequent album “Stygg” came in 1988 and included three songs in English , including the song The seduction of Sweet Louise written by Frankie Miller, who Hoffsten also later often expressed in his concerts. The song “Vin av Frihet” ended up on the charts and in 1988 she toured in Sweden with her own band. Her first two solo albums contained the respective interpretation of Cornelis Vreeswijk song: “Lasse Liten Blues”. The production on that album is suberb and the songs performed passionate by the bluesy voice of  Louise. Great album for them who like the soft melodies with a blues touch…
