"The closest a new Norwegian singer/songwriter has come the timeless qualities of Ryan Adams" - Stein Ostbo, VG - www.nordgarden.info
Nordgarden is a Norwegian artist deriving from the American old school of classic songwriting. In a style of deep roots in folk, blues, jazz, gospel and rock he seeks to write that good, melodic storytelling song, as well as performing it with burning passion and nerve following in the traditions of such as the indispensable Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young to the more recent likes of Elliott Smith, Ryan Adams and Rufus Wainwright.
His life takes a drastic turn at the age of fourteen when he sees Bruce Springsteen playing a concert in Oslo. Bouncing up and down for four hours of pure rock´n roll until his feet are sore and the revelation is complete. As kids at that age seek their identity he finds his in a guitar and in the songs he writes in his room, trying to figure out a thing or two about the confusing world outside. At the age of 18 he finishes high school and goes studying music for a year at a Sunnhordland FHS on Halsnoy, an island South of Bergen and far off the Norwegian West Coast. The year makes a deep impact with breathtaking nature, endless hours of music study, but also struggles with melancholy and the sensation of being lost.
One year later he moves to Oslo working a year in a kindergarden as part of his civil service playing guitar for the kids. Eagerly digging after new inspiration in the fervent rock scene of Oslo where gets to see a new hero Elliott Smith playing only years before his all too early death. Deeply inspired Nordgarden started playing random shows at the student bars and began learning the art of live performance. Later on he writes and dedicates the song “The Gift Of Song” to Elliott Smith.
