HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

It’s been 10 years since my eponymous debut. So it’s an anniversary! I will celebrate. I will update old posts with memorabilia. And I will write new posts – heck of a lot more often then in recent years. I am recording a new studio album – “Without A Shield” – with producer Lars Voldsdal.Continue reading “HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015”

IT’S NEVER GONNA BE PERFECT (the story behind the duet)

I just found the original sketch and lyrics for a song from the Ocean Sessions EP (2007). Back in 2006 when I was writing for a follow-up EP to my eponymous debut album, I was thinking of doing a duet with someone. Going through different demos and songs that I had laying around I cameContinue reading “IT’S NEVER GONNA BE PERFECT (the story behind the duet)”

HAPPY NEW YEAR COMPETITION

Happy New Year to y’all! I hope you are as excited about the new year as I am. And that Christmastide have been treating you very well!

OneContinue reading “UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A COLORLESS VOLATILE FLAMMABLE LIQUID”

THE TROUBLES OF TOURING

FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE

Ciao boys and girls, Oh how drunken man can get… It’s Sunday morning after too many days of drinking, dancing and playing. The only right thing to do is to walk the mountain and let out the demons. And eat junk food… FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE! Friday in Trondheim was fun. A lot of people, nice feedbackContinue reading “FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE”

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”
