In the kingdom of Nøkken

We had a great time playing by Klopptjern tonight. In the middle of the forest more than 70 people gathered for this outdoor concert with traditional Norwegian food, a fire and beautiful nature. A big thank you to the great audience! (Photo by Lars Ove Wangensteen Berge)

...REALLY GOOD!!! Today we prepared some brand new material for our Faerieworlds set just the tree of us. Later this week I will have to deal with even two more of this funny species! Really looking forward to that!

In the middle of Jotunheimen

Another beautiful wedding ceremony has now become a wonderful past to be remembered. What a spectacular scenery and a great day at Eidsbugarden, right in the middle of Jotunheimen. Thank you Lewi Bergrud, it was a very nice experience to play with you! This was the first time, but for sure not the last!

A wonderful weekend in Sweden

This weekend Jørgen and I played in a beautiful wedding ceremony at Dömle Herrgård in Sweden, a great weekend filled with so much happiness, delicious food and beautiful surroundings. It´s a wonderful side of my job to be given the trust to contribute on special days like this!

Great rehearsal day in Studio

It´s good to be back in the studio after all the wonderful summer activities! New impulses are growing from feelings to soundwaves, and it´s great working with different sounds and develop atmosphere with Stig and Jørgen again! Really looking forward to this new album to come!

With the cameras on

A film crew has been following us during our journey in the wild west to document the collaboration with native americans. We look forward to share more of this journey with you when all the interviews are done and the material is edited and completed. Benjamin and Jeff, you are just amazing! It has been a great pleasure to get to know you both and to work with you. Hope we will do a lot more together in the future!
