I’ve been slightly off the grid lately. I was on the road for most of the easter holiday, and basically have had to jump from flight to flight. Currently I’m somewhere over the Atlantic, on my way to Los Angeles to film the music video for my new single coming out in early May! I’m so excited about this shoot, Frederic Esnault have put together a fantastic team, and my two featuring artists are absolutely fantastic. Pontus and Jens of P & J Styling have packed me a wild wardrobe and I’m crazy about one leather jacket I’m going to wear, which is customized by Norwegian brand Mardou & Dean. So do stay tuned for another while longer!
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!
The gig at Stavkroa was as fun as ever. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to Calle and his crew for the superstar treatment. Can’t wait to come back ❤

It’s such a pleasure to play in Hemsedal. This place does not only hold one of the wiildest afterskis in the world, but it’s also home to the best promoter and host, Calle. I love doing gigs in collaboration with him. He’s such a pro and great guy. Make sure you stop by Stavkroa or Hemsedal Café if you’re in the area!
Today we’ve spent some time getting ready for tonights show, which means drinking prosecco in the slopes, without actually getting any skiing done. Even though we’re avid skiers, we forgot to take our skis with us. Maybe thankfully so, as there was an avalanche in the slopes today (nobody was hurt), and with our luck we’d probably be the ones who got the blame for it.
Anyway, so ready for tonight!
My first ever gig in Stockholm, Sweden is over and done with, and let me tell you – those Swedes know how to turn up. I had an amazing time playing Berns, and I’m so grateful for every single one who took the time to come out and party with me! The club was packed and I got to play a set that was completely next level for me. Had so much fun! On top of that, we managed to squeeze in a studio session in Axwells old studio, Sebjak and I.
Perfect techno-themed weekend!
It’s almost time! If you’re in the area, I hope I’ll see you there!
Talking about my first gig of 2017 had me thinking of my 2016 gigs. I love touring, so almost every gig is the best. But the best gig of 2016 has to be the I did in Tønsberg, a small Norwegian city which really comes to life during summer. My friend Andreas had come all the way to Norway from LA and sailed his boat down the coast to attend the concert, I had loads of friends coming and the place was packed to the brim. Check out a video from the night below. 🙂
I didn’t have a lot of negative experiences last year, luckily. But I did have a “sound technician” trying to blow my ear drums out in a different small Norwegian city. For me, with tinnitus and everything, bad sound technicians can be fatal to my hearing but I managed to save my ears this time as well. But I don’t think I’ll go back there, and hopefully, I won’t have to work with this technician again either.
