My absolute first single ”I’ll Be Home (in a day or so)” on Spotify and video was released 27th March 2020 and the complete debut album ”Living In The Past” released 24th April 2020 with me and my musicians in Siberian Khatru. Finally somethings going to be released to the world after a year of really hard work.
-So privileged to be able to work with all these incredibly competent musicians, organizers and producers when creating this, my first soloalbum (with my band Siberian Khatru). From all over Europe you have given me tremendous energy to create, dream and recording this music.
Being able to work in the studio with a guy who’s friend for over ten years, the multimusic artist, organizer and producer Stefan Kardebratt was a wonderful experience. Especially when we recorded the first song in a session of threeand after doing a first recording of the song – Bodie (later included on the debut album) was Stefan’s first words … hmmmm, ok – that was not so Good! Then the ice was broken and we had a tremendously fun and rewarding recording relationship. Stefan is also the only person I know with the absolute driest humor in the music industry. Which is much appreciated. However, what I appreciate most as a singer and artist is Stefan’s accuracy in the studio where he leaves nothing to chance. I know he spends countless hours on the arrangements of my songs both instrumentally and vocally. Then he also has access to as many incredibly competent musicians as he hired in if needed. I am extremely proud to have access to Stefan’s time and knowledge. The song “I´ll Be Home (in a day or so)” I found already in 1968 in a market in a cardboard box and bought for 50 cents. The band was called Dream Police and was American – yes I know, there’s a Norwegian band started 1989 with that name nowadays. I fell in love immediately in this composition. Now, 54 years later, I have released it as a video and single and it has – you could easily say – played well in its sleepless sleep.
