Norwegian pop singer Dagny spent years trying to get that coveted, but hard come by, “big break” onto the music scene. After finishing school, she worked to fund a desire to travel. She interailed around Europe and did a coast-to-coast trip across the US, before ending up in London.

Based in the English capital, she spent years gigging there and everywhere else, from her home country of Norway to Austria and Thailand. Unfortunately, she never reaped the rewards she was looking for at the time.
