A SONG IN MY NATIVE TONGUE

Hi, it’s been a while… I am busy taking care of my 17 months old daughter… being the homemaker of the family. We’re having so much fun, building Lego, drawing cats and horses and circles… (st)rolling up and down Torshov a couple of times every day. And she loves to ride her 3-wheel scooter. IContinue reading “A SONG IN MY NATIVE TONGUE”

TOURING EUROPE WITH DANDYLION

In February and March I will be touring with Marianne of Katzenjammer’s solo project Dandylion in Europe, both opening for her and playing guitar in her band. It’s gonna be a blast! If everything is going according to my plans I will also bring a brand spanking new album with me on the road. RHETORICContinue reading “TOURING EUROPE WITH DANDYLION”

NEW SHOWS THE SUPER EGO

In between recording two new albums I am doing a few shows here and there. Since I never was any good at keeping up the momentum of past successes I’ve hardly done anything to make sure people remember me from time to time. Now I woke up the other day thinking; I haven’t really playedContinue reading “NEW SHOWS THE SUPER EGO”

DEEP IN THE WOODS

I am at my family’s cabin writing and recording songs for my two upcoming albums. I shower outdoors and catch my own fish for dinner. It’s very quiet – it’s only me deep in the woods in the middle of Norway. The songs are all coming together very nicely… Best, -ropo Photos from my InstagramContinue reading “DEEP IN THE WOODS”

THE BUTTON MOULDER’S WALTZ

On February 20 I posted this on Facebook. So I guess I had to do it. Listen in context of the dogme-like way of which I was producing it. I haven’t used any other recording equipment than the built-in microphone on my Mac and a few software instruments. It was quite a stressful recording situationContinue reading “THE BUTTON MOULDER’S WALTZ”

ARTWORK AND NEW VIDEO

I have sent the RHETORIC master and artwork to manufacturing. Been struggling all week with the sequencing of this album, sometimes a tough nut to crack. After exchanging views on this with my good friend Egil Olsen and my girlfriend, who’s occasionally been working as a DJ and therefor has this natural hunch about the order ofContinue reading “ARTWORK AND NEW VIDEO”

HAPPY NEW YEAR & A HAPPY NEW SONG

Hello everybody watching this space, It’s a new year full of expectations and opportunities.

I suppose it will be sent out to radio one of these days… andContinue reading “HAPPY NEW YEAR & A HAPPY NEW SONG”

BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT

“All you need is love”. A wise person once wrote this line. My opinion is that that’s Utopian. Still, I’m really working on believing in it. It’s not the worst thing that can happen. I mean, if we really believed in it I guess we’d get one step closer. “All I need is love” At this point I’m very openContinue reading “BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT”

BASS PLAYER PLEASE

Hello 2004, This is my 25th year on this planet and I hope it will bring me luck. At least it has started out great, except from the everlasting problem money. Who cares anyway…? There’s so much else to worry about like; why doesn’t fathers learn their sons or daughters to play bass-guitar? At the time I’m trying toContinue reading “BASS PLAYER PLEASE”
