Being born and raised in the small village of Flatdal in Telemark, Norway, I early got interested in music, and grew up with Beatles and several Rockabilly bands and looked up to my two elder brothers who were in a band. (They had leather jackets, brylcreme and girls – no need to mention any more?). I suddenly discovered my fascination for hard and epic music, and wanted to form a band as a 14-year old kid, but unfornately, none of my friends back home had the skill to play.
Mercyful Fate and Dio shooked my musical world in the early eighties and 18 years old I left my dear Mommys apron strings to form a band. Ever since, great music has been my way of expression and source to carry on.
Being both guitarist and vocalist in several bands, I now concentrate fully on the vocal work but write music at home, on the guitar and record in my home studio. I use much of my free
time on that and I never get bored with it either. It was my dream to combine aggressive music with the melodic aspects, and with such talented musicians as my fellow bandmates, I am finally able to create the music of my dreams.
Besides my fire for music, I’m very interested in the mysteries of time and universe, paranormal phenomenons and the great riddle of excistence. You can easily notice so whilst reading some of my lyrics, who builds a platform for-some of my ideas and beliefs. Till’ next time, carry on.
