Solveig Slettahjell (born 2 April 1971 in Bærum, Norway) is a Norwegian Jazz singer, known for her soulful, seductive voice.

Norwegian jazz vocalist Solveig Slettahjell is a musical thinker who in tandem with her group, the Slow Motion Quintet, has developed a highly personal approach to her art. Not only does she open up a song and explore it from within, she is able to invest it with a meaning and gravitas that even the songwriters themselves probably never knew existed. It's a precious gift that only the great singers possess. Certainly this girl can make time stand still - just play 'You Won't Forget Me' or 'Take it With Me' for evidence of her inimitable talent.

Solveig Slettahjell has succeeded in doing to jazz what James Joyce did to the genre of coming-of-age novels; she's ripped up the form and started again. Stuart Nicholson, Observer Music Monthly, November 2005). ACT is re-releasing Silver on October 20th 2006 together with the new album Good Rain, for all those who missed out two years ago. In the summer of 2006 Solveig Slettahjell returned to JazzBaltica – this time playing the big main stage – and rocked the sold out house (a huge barn). Slow Motion Quintet was a very conscious choice of name for the band. It is literally like slow motion in the movies.
