Danish Singer Signe Svendsen Shares #MeToo Experience in Music Industry

Signe Svendsen: The Voice Against Abuse in the Music Industry

DR’s documentary “Sexism in the Music Industry” has shaken Danes’ perception of the music industry and revealed the dark realities that female musicians face in 2024. One of the brave women who has come forward and shared her experiences is the 49-year-old singer, Signe Svendsen from Nyborg. Signe Svendsen is no newcomer to the industry. She rose to fame in 2001 when she won the Danish Melodi Grand Prix with the duo Rollo & King and achieved second place in the international competition. Her experiences and insights in the industry have given her a unique understanding of the challenges women face.

In the documentary, Signe Svendsen shares a heartbreaking experience where she describes how Martin Brygmann allegedly assaulted her while she was asleep. She woke up feeling him crawling under the covers and grabbing her breasts. Despite the shock and fear, she managed to reject him and push him away. Signe Svendsen’s brave statements are a powerful testimony to the skewed power dynamics that still exist in the music industry. Her honesty and openness shed light on the underlying issues and create a platform for other women to come forward with their own stories. Even though Martin Brygmann has denied the accusations and tried to block the documentary through legal means, Signe Svendsen has remained steadfast in her narrative.
