The family of the 52-year-old musician Andréa Meyer, who was killed in Kongsberg on Wednesday, says she will be deeply missed.
Andréa Meyer was one of the five people killed by Espen Andersen Bråthen on Wednesday night. The family’s lawyer, Knut Fure, sent out a statement on Sunday on behalf of the woman’s family and survivors.
“Andrea leaves behind an adult child. The daughter expresses great sorrow and longing for the loss of her mother. Andrea will be deeply missed by both her Norwegian and German family. The family otherwise wants peace after this tragic event,” the statement says.
Meyer was from Germany but had lived in Norway and Kongsberg for several years. She was a well-known musician in several music genres and had a number of releases behind her.
Music journalist Didrik Søderlind told the newspaper VG that Andréa Meyer had a fan base in underground music all over the world.
“In Norway, Andréa Meyer was unknown because the Norwegian press does not cover this type of alternative music, but, for example, in Germany, she was a big name,” he told the newspaper.
