NOMARK – Award winning composers, artists, singers and choir directors from the west coast of Sweden.
Åsa & Ulf Nomark met during the early high school years and started singing and performing together. Over time they have developed a, by many described as, unique and anointed vocal blend and their vision is to use the gift of music as a means to give the audience a heart opening and life encouraging experience. Today they have a family with two children and work full time in their music ministry.
Having toured together with great gospel legends such as Jessy Dixon and Andrae Crouch, they have been inspired by the afro-american gospel tradition. This has had a major impact on their music which incorporates both Scandinavian and American influences.
In concert, Ulf and Åsa Nomark really feel at home. In addition to their own concerts, they are also frequent guest artists and guest choir directors at concerts and choir workshops all over Sweden and they tour both with and without musicians and background choir. Their songs have been widely appreciated by other singers as well as choirs and have been performed and recorded in several other European countries.
The discography of Åsa & Ulf Nomark is impressive; combining their NOMARK productions with the productions with choirs such as Solid Gospel and Java Gospel and the Relaxing Piano series they have released 14 full length albums. The passion for writing songs that uplift and inspire has been recognized; the songs ”Without” (Java Gospel) and ”We have come into this house” (Solid Gospel) both received awards in the Gospel Category of the international UNISONG contest. Swedish newspaper “Dagen” praised the Common Ground album: “Åsa and Ulf have delicate, experienced voices…The best song – “Love is a moment away” makes me think of great artists like Chaka Khan. I Like!”
“”It was an amazing day with the two of you and all the wonderful songs. The word is spreading about the gospel concert we had and people that normally don’t find their way to church was lyrical! Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world!
