04_nbgg02PRESS RELEASE

(West Hollywood, CA) — Grammy-winning singer Gloria Gaynor and “Days of our Lives” actress Nadia Bjorlin team up to perform together for the very first time, “Tell Him”, as Gloria takes the GRAMMY Sound Stage to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her smash hit “I Will Survive.”

“Nadia Bjorlin is on my favorite daytime drama, “Days of our Lives.” says Gaynor. “I’m a huge fan of the show and of hers from her TV and film projects. We also share some of the same representation, so I asked her if she would want to perform a duet with me and she called me right away and said ‘yes!!’, explains Gaynor.

“I was totally blown away when Ms. Gaynor asked me if I would perform with her! I’m a longtime fan of hers and it’s an HONOR to be asked to sing with GLORIA GAYNOR!” says Nadia Bjorlin.

Gaynor has been busy celebrating 30 years of “I Will Survive” this year. The song reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the Spring of 1979, not only once, but twice, and was #1 all over the world in nearly every country. The song has yet to be off radio playlists since that time. She also won a GRAMMY in 1980 for the first and only category of its kind, “Best Disco Song”. The category had its inception in 1980 and the category was dropped altogether by 1981.

Bjorlin herself comes from a musical background. She was classically trained when she was younger and her father was the late Ulf Bjorlin, international composer from Sweden, and Bjorlin herself has performed on “Days of our Lives” on numerous occasions and performs on a regular basis at fan, sports and charity events. In 2008 she and her brothers Ulf and Jean Paul, all known professionally as The Bjorlin Trio, released a crossover/classical EP.

Four Song EP – The Bjorlin Trio Released Digitally Worldwide

(Hollywood) – Actress Nadia Bjorlin, known to fans around the world on the NBC daytime drama, Days of our Lives, has released a 4 song EP along with her brothers Ulf and Jean Paul Bjorlin, titled The Bjorlin Trio.

“The music is best described as classical crossover, in the likes of Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli.  We recorded these four songs because of the beautiful three part harmonies and of course it is accompanied by my brother Jean Paul on piano,” explains the actress.

The trio has been performing together since they were 5 and 6 years old all over Sweden, Europe and the States where they have all grown up. As they grew older, they went their separate ways with their individual professions. Nadia pursued acting in Hollywood, and in 1999 landed the long exhausted search for the character of Chloe Lane which she has portrayed on and off since that time. In between those stints on Days of our Lives, she starred in the 2007 feature film, Redline and has guest starred in such TV series as Jake In Progress, Sex, Love & Secrets, Out of Practice and Complete Savages.  Ulf is an accomplished musician in his own right and was named after their late father, Ulf Bjorlin, Sr., a world famous composer and conductor. Ulf has also followed in his sister’s footsteps in acting, co-starring in several films and TV projects. Jean Paul is a recent graduate of Juilliard with a Master’s Degree in Piano and currently sings in various New York City opera companies.

Last year the three siblings – Nadia, Ulf and Jean Paul decided to reunite and reignite their passion for the music that their father had so inspired them to love and they recorded several tracks together for fun. The magic of the trio was there and ultimately the EP was born and of course they were encouraged to pursue this by their mother, Fary, and their three other siblings – Katja, Kaj and Kamilla.

The tracks on The Bjorlin Trio EP include “Time To Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro)”, “Dream A Dream (Pavane)”, “The Prayer” and “Cinema Paradiso.” The tracks were recorded at the famous Capitol Studios in Hollywood with two-time Grammy-Award winning producer, Rob Christie.

The 4 song EP is available on iTunes, eMusic and Amazon.com (not available anymore) and wherever digital downloads are sold.

01_trio01ACTRESS NADIA BJORLIN RETURNS TO RECORDING STUDIO and PERFORMS LIVE AT FEAST OF SAN GENNARO

(West Hollywood, CA) — Actress Nadia Bjorlin, best known for her role as Chloe Lane on NBC’s Days of our Lives and her feature film, Redline, will be heading to the recording studios next week to record new material with her brothers, Ulf Bjorlin and Jean-Paul Bjorlin.

The style will be classical crossover, in the likes of Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli. The recordings for now will be simple: three vocals, piano and string quartet.

This is not the first time the siblings have performed together, “We have been singing together since we were 5 and 6 years old, all over Sweden and Europe and the States, and we were known as the Bjorlin Trio,” explains Nadia Bjorlin.  “Our musical influences come from our father, Ulf Bjorlin, Sr., who was a famous composer/conductor all over the world” adds Jean-Paul.

The three of them bring together a rich blend of harmony musically, but as a group, Nadia brings her charisma, her charm, her fans and her beauty. Jean-Paul, on the other hand, recently received his Masters Degree at Juilliard and is currently singing opera in New York City. Ulf Bjorlin, who attended Manhattan School of Music and is also an actor, has his own brand of charm and personality that will attract the crossover appeal.

Producing the tracks is two-time Grammy Award winning music producer, Rob Christie.  Rob has produced projects for The Beatles, Martina McBride, the Frank Sinatra estate, The Beach Boys, Joss Stone, the John Lennon estate…and most recently the current hit album: Dean Martin “Forever Cool” (with guests artists Kevin Spacey, Robbie Williams, Chris Botti, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, etc.) and many more.

The Bjorlin Family will once again perform in public for the first time in nearly a decade at the Feast of San Gennaro – Hollywood, Saturday, September 29, at The Jimmy Kimmel Stage, 4:00pm.
