In 2006 after numerous showcases Ina signed a record deal with TVT Records and began finishing her album, but due to unforeseen circumstances TVT folded and Ina was left without a label. She went back to Norway to reflect, rethink and reload for what was in store for her next. In the summer of 2007 Ina started her first co-writes, writing for artists other than herself. It soon became apparent that this was to be her future.
The first songs Ina wrote were recorded by the UK based girl group ‘The Saturdays‘ (Poyldor/Universal). She ended up with 9 songs on their Platinum debut album including the 1st single «If This Is Love» (No.8), 2nd single «Up» (No.4 – Selling Gold) and 5th single «Work». Soon after, Ina relocated to London and has had nothing but success since. In just a few short years Ina has gone from struggling artist to one of the most successful songwriters around.
Ina’s songs have been cut by Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls, Shontelle, Cobra Starship, Leona Lewis, One Direction, Cover Drive, Tinchy Stryder, Alexis Jordan, Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, N Dubz, The Saturdays & Flo Rida, the majority of the songs being released as singles.
With her success, Ina now finds herself co-producer of most of her songs involved mainly the vocal production. She’s co-written with top talent such as Rodney Jerkins, Tricky Stewart, Jim Jonsin, Arnthor Birgisson, Steve Mac, Fraser T. Smith, Bonnie McKee, Quiz & Larossi, as well as many others. It’s hard to imagine so much success, so quickly, but Ina’s talent is undeniable, so it was only a matter of time.
Waterfall has now sold their share of Ina’s publishing rights to Reverb Music. We wish Ina all the best of luck in her new ‘home’ at Reverb where she will surely be well looked after!
