Welcome to my new website everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to check things out.  I’ve got a lot of great things to share like tour dates with Colbie Caillat, photos, videos and pictures with new friends from across the country.

Blogging is new to me, but I it’s a cool way for me to express myself in more than 140 characters, LOL!  This is where I’m going to keep track of my music journey and share a peek into my life.

Here’s the 5 minute version of my background:  I was born and raised in Bergen City, Norway.  I first started playing the guitar at age 7.  I have been performing at music festivals with professional musicians since I was 12.  Playing Blues/Rock has always been my favorite style of music. I came to the US in 2010 to attend the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. I graduated with honors in 2012.  A month later I auditioned to be the guitarist in Colbie Caillat’s band – got the gig and not I am on my first tour!

This has been a very exciting and fun summer for me.  I will always remember this new phase of life and my first professional gig touring in the United States with Colbie Caillat’s Summer Tour 2012!!!  AWESOME!

I hope you will follow me on this journey as I experience the ups and downs of life in the music business.  Please be sure to leave comments and let me know what’s on your mind!  I’m still figuring out exactly what I’ll be blogging about (suggestions are welcome), but I’ll be posting new information as inspiration hits me. so till then…

Jeg ser deg snart! – I’ll see you soon!
