Dear all!

Thank you so much for the year of 2015! It has been wonderful with a lot of memorable experiences for me.

Musically looking back and suming up:

Skydive Trio  released our album “Sun Moee” on the Hubro-label.

We toured around quite a bit and rounded off the year with a great week in Japan in December.

Rubicon got the opportunity to perform 7 concerts in Norway. Loved it! We also recorded in Rainbow Studio, Oslo, an album to be released now in May by the great ECM-label. Looking forward! We also recorded in Rainbow Studio, Oslo, an album to be released in May on ECM.

Among other things, I got to do several memorable performances around with the fiddle-maestro Nils Økland supporting the release of the album “Kjølvatn”.
Also a trip to Italy with Trygve Seim and his quartet, travelled all the way to South Korea with Bobo Stenson and Jon Fält in september.
To Denmark and Austria with Mark Solborg/Peter Brun as well as some perfromances in Estonia with Kristjan Randalu and Markku Ounaskari. And of course the christmas bonanza with The Source recently!

Got to be part of brand new releases by guitar-maestro Andreas Aase (“Fir”) and also of course Mathias Eick (“Midwest”) earlier this year.

I feel so privileged to be able to travel, meet and make music together with and in front of people and audiences in so many various places, to experience and learn that we all seem to share the same dreams, desires and visions wherever your home is and your religion might be. 

2016 includes some nice surprises and hopefully a lot of good music and good experiences and adventures.
Looking forward!
Take care everybody, and remember:

Support live music! Support your local live music provider! See you all around!
