The vocalgroup Pitsj consists of five strong, female singers based in Oslo, Norway – all young women at the heights of their personal carreers as trained singers, actors and musicians. Two pair of sisters; Anine and Benedikte Kruse, Ida and Ane Roggen, and a fifth member Anja Eline Skybakmoen.

Pitsj started working as a group in 1999, and in 2005 they recorded an album featuring well-known Norwegian tunes spanning from classics from the Eurovision Song Contest in the sixties, to rock classics from more recent years. The album is tastefully produced by Anders Edenroth from the legendary Swedish a cappella group The Real Group, in their Stockholm studio (this was with the former member Tora Augestad).

In 2007 Anja Eline Skybakmoen became a member of Pitsj, when Tora Augestad had to leave the group to work on other projects.

With Pitsj's unusual all-female composition, the critics agree that Pitsj presents delightfully fresh and sophisticated interpretations of popular songs. On the group’s repertoary are also well-known American jazz and musical classics, and contemporary popular music.
