My Hometown released digitally

My Hometown released digitally

Got hours of music just lying around on the computer, so this might count as another step to make it accessible.

My Hometown was written, I think, in 2003 or 4 and recorded maybe in 2005 together with Bosse Litsheim of Ai Phoenix​ on percussion and backing vocals and Jørgen Sandvik – artistside​ of Real Ones on mandolin and backing vocals. I sang, plucked the guitar and played the lap steel guitar on this one.

We travelled together with our instruments to Høyanger located by the Sognefjord. Me and Jørgen stayed in the late Bønna’s house (if I remember correctly). I think we were there for a week and recorded in the old gun club house. It seems like forever ago, and judging by the lyrics it is forever ago also. A year earlier I had discovered the Bonnie “Prince” Billy record Master And Everyone, and I was also pretty much soaked in compulsive Elliott Smith listening, finally finding something else than old country-blues, british folk from the 60s and Bob Dylan.

Its been a long road since then, and this was my first in a studio, and a first together with other musicians. I had shown Jørgen my four-track demos of this song and a few others and he wanted us to take it a step further. Bosse planned things, and made it happen.

Steps Leading Nowhere

This song was written by my ailing father. Sick with cancer my father set out on a song writing journey a few years back, and wrote around fifty songs over the course of two or three years. Being a great outlet and therapy for him, it also gave a new insight for me into my fathers thoughts and mind.

New releases out digitally

Several releases will be available during the next few days on Rdio, Deezer, iTunes, Amazon and Spotify and likely elsewhere too. Hopefully more material will be published in the near future.

Single out on October 14th on Spotify and iTunes

Lazy - Coverart

The last few years has been a hectic period, with less recording put out. I’ve been producing slowly at the same pace as always, and really hope to get something new out soon.
In the meantime I decided to get one of my early hits, Lazy, out on Spotify, Wimp and iTunes.
