My first symphony called “Seven” is complete and in post production. It took me over 4 years to write and produce this album, and it is the closest to my heart of all the music I have written so far. I am excited to share it with all of you! The album will be released on the 7/7/2019. Thanks to Sam Hayles for the gorgeous artwork.
1 Million YouTube subscribers with TSFH! What a milestone and what an incredible feeling to have such an amazing fan base spread across the world. I remember when I was starting out and the only fans I had were my family and some friends. It feels surreal because everything in my life is the same. I am still just that dude from Norway, forever insecure about my work and never truly happy with anything I create. I was walking down the street the other day and some girls stopped me all excited and wanted to take a selfie. I happily posed for the camera. Then one asked me what it’s like to work with “random name I’ve never heard of”, and with a bewildered look on my face I replied “wait.. what do you think I do?” to which she responded “you play that cop in the tv show!! Don’t you!?” ... I paused and their smiles turned to disappointment as I had to explain that they had the wrong guy and I’m just a musician.

In between all my orchestral projects I am also writing some more pop-y music just to keep myself from losing my mind. “Imagine” featuring Sonna is one of about a dozen of these experiments to come with regular intervals while I’m completing my new orchestral albums.

A lot of people have asked me what I’ve been up to lately, so here’s a little update on what I’ve been doing for the last couple of years: My symphonic piece “American Dream” will be released the 31st of July. The piece is one continuous musical journey that goes on for a good 45 minutes without any breaks for the (poor) orchestra. It is decidedly not for everyone, but I loved writing it and wanted to share it with you. In addition to a follow-up album to Sun that’s in the works, I have also been writing a symphony that I am excited to share with all of you when it’s ready.
Finally "Unleashed" is out and available for download! https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/unleashed/id1287310003 The tracks I wrote for the album are generally a little lighter in tone than the previous album. Here is a list of the tracks I did: Unleashed Impossible Wild Heart Run Free Never Give Up On Your Dreams (featuring me on the violin) Secret Melody Molto Piratissimo Snow Angels (featuring me on the cello) Westward See Me Fight I hope you like the music!
Look out for our new Two Steps From Hell's album coming tomorrow. Those of you who liked my album "Sun" will enjoy some of my tracks on "Unleashed". Most notably "Never Give Up On Your Dreams", which was originally written for "Sun". "Unleashed" also features a track I composed called "Impossible". This track combines a lot of my musical influences over the years, from SID chip music, trance, Irish jigs, bombastic orchestral, electronica etc. I hope you enjoy the music!
Andrew Wrangell Music did this impressive piano version of "High C's" and it makes me realize a few things: 1) I write far too many notes! :) 2) I need to work on my piano skills Andrew, arranging this piece for piano is quite an undertaking, and performing it is up there with running a marathon. I know because the violinists are still recovering from the recording session two months ago, and now whenever my name is mentioned they drop everything and flee in panic :) Well done Andrew, I wish you a rich and wonderful career in music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGjjnZdK4HA
In case you missed it, here's a piece from the brand new Two Steps From Hell album "Vanquish". I had a lot of fun writing this, particularly with the strings which are working overtime throughout the piece. A LOT of music coming in 2017! https://youtu.be/tGh4FcZKekA
