“Terese Lien Evenstad is a musician and composer with great musicality and passion. She moves freely between different genres and utilizes her technical skill to blend into the music she performs. Her imagination and ability to phrase and improvise make her a particularly exciting musician”

— motivation by Janne Schaffer and the jury of J:son Scholarship.
