Watch this brand new video for This House from my latest album, A Storm is Coming (Karisma Records 2019).
The song is written and produced by me, engineered by Vegard Kleftås Sleipnes and featuring Henrik Bergan Fossum on drums and Simen Valldal Johannessen (Oak – Official Fanpage) on piano.
This House was the last one to be written for the album. It sort of concludes the theme of a failing relationship and all the confusion and naive hopes one is left with. I wanted a very light production, with a bit of jazz influences, yet with a dark atmosphere to underline the lyrics.
A Storm is Coming is available on LP, CD and download.
Be sure to check out the beautiful new album, Oceans of Thought, from Italian multi instrumentalist and prog maestro Marco Ragni! I’ve had the pleasure of contributing lead guitar on the track Open My Arms.
The new single Stormwatch is available on download and stream at all major platforms. The track is taken from my upcoming album, A Storm is Coming, which is out May 3rd.
Stormwatch is a dialog between two people who experience the violent tension and frustration in a relationship. To portray this, I’m sharing the vocal duties with the amazing Norwegian singer, Mimi Tamba.
Stormwatch also feature Henrik Bernan Fossum (Airbag) on drums and Simen Valldal Johannessen (Oak) on piano.
I’m super excited to return to one of the finest prog fesitivals out there, the 2 Days Prog +1 in Veruno, Italy September 6-8!
They have a strict policy on never having returning guests but the perk of having a solo carreer is that this rule doesn’t apply, ha ha! We had such a great time with Airbag back in 2016 – great venue, audience, food and atmosphere.
This is a no ticket required event. See you there!

The new single Icarus is available on download and stream at all major platforms. The track is taken from my upcoming album, A Storm is Coming, which is out May 3rd.
Icarus is inspired by the classic Greek tale about Icarus flying too close to the sun. This hybris is translated into a relationship between two people, where one part is getting burned for always trying too hard.
Icarus feature Henrik Fossum (Airbag) on drums and Kristian Hultgren (Wobbler) on bass.
