I`m a 27 year old musician from Norway. I have a psycothic passion for music and is probably the most annoying guy You`ve
ever met if we get into a discussion regarding this topic.
I also have a wonderfull son named Andreas who lives with me on a permanent basis. He is my love, pride & light!

I have had several bands during my 12 years as an active musician, but only a few is worth mentioning like...
We made a self-financed demo in 98` called "Molto Doloroso", and was a progressive metal band with a gothic
twist. This band included members like Ronny Kaasa (In_Zekt), Erlend Caspersen (All Seeing I, Blood Red Throne, Carpathian
Forrest etc.) & Hanne Hukkelberg (Up and coming jazz singer from Norway).
- In Extenso:
This was an ethnic sounding band with Violins, piano, percussion, bass & guitar. We made one demo in 2000 that was
just called "In Extenso" featuring Ida Cecilie Tingstein & myself on vocals. We did several gigs including some
funny stuff in Estonia. Some of my accoustic songs are from this period.
- Ashes To Ashes:
I started singing for this "Gregorian" metal band in 2000, and recorded my first album with them the same Year
called "Shapes Of Spirits". In 2002 we released our second album called "Cardinal VII" and was signed
to a Duch record Label called "DVS Records".
That same Year we had the pleassure of playing at the "Elements Of Metal" festival in Norway With other acts
like "Susperia", "Highland Glory", "Arch Nemesis", "Einherjer", "Guardians Of
Time" etc. And we also played at the "Prog Power" festival in The Netherlands co-Headlining the final day with
"After Forever". AtoA is the recent band that I left.
At the present I am concentrating all my work around my new band called "Lucid Moon" where I went back to my
"roots" and started to play guitar again. We will enter Toproom Studio August the 19th this year to record our debut
It`s simple and raw Rock n`roll/Hard Rock with a progressive twist and suits me perfectly as a musician and where I am
in life today.
