A Brief Introduction to Maria Mena

Arguably a much underrated artist, Maria Mena is a Norwegian singer named after the character “Maria” in Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story. Her father played in several bands in Oslo, which influenced her to write and record her own music.To date she has released seven studio albums. Internationally she is best known for songs like You’re the Only One, Just Hold Me and All This Time which charted in multiple countries. Earlier this year Maria auditioned for a role in the Norwegian TV series Etterglød (Afterglow). She was not cast but offered to record a song for the soundtrack. That song, called It Was Love, is new this week on RadiJohan.
