Ready For The Weekend!

Finally Friday! I’ve had the most intense week, which also featured a bonding trip out of town with mye fellow The Voice mentors, Yousef from Madcon, Lene Marlin and Morten Harket. We had a great time at Refsnes Gods, and I got to try really fine wine for the first time (so far, the only fancy drink I’ve tried is fine vodka. There’s no fine wines in the club.) So apparently, I’m a wine person now!

This weekend I’m headed back on the road, and will visit Trysil for a show. Since it’s the first weekend of easter, I’m hoping for a great turn out.

Have a fantastic Friday!

How awesome does this place look? For some reason, it’s really popular with brides…

Preparing For The Voice

I’m probably the first ever mentor in the history of “The Voice” which is not very commercial and not even a vocalist. I think it’s fun, and a little extra challenging. But it does mean that I need to broaden my horizon about top 40 music. To soften up my ears, I’ve created a Spotify playlist for just that. This is songs I would very much like to hear the participants sing during the competition. Is there a song you feel like is missing here?

 

Eurovision Song Contest

Last night I did something very much unlike myself – I stayed in, and spent the entire night watching the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest. My good friend and colleague Joakim was competing (under the pseudonym JOWST) with a song I’ve had the pleasure to give my input on. He’s been working on the song for so long, and he is such a talented guy. With Aleksander Wallman on vocals and behind a LED-mask, he actually went and won the finale! He will now represent Norway in the international Eurovision finale in Kiev, Ukraine! So deserved, and so much fun that a modern-style EDM track  will represent our country!

In the studio with Nicoline and Joakim, and of course the living legend Baphliff.
