This guy is almost unheard of, despite the fact he’s done ads for Pepsi and performed as an opener for Beyonce.
So let me tell you something. He’s pretty good. And by that, I mean he is top class.
This guy can play bass, guitar, drums and piano/keyboard. He manages to incorporate all of these instruments into a live show, whilst singing and rapping. He stays in tune throughout and him and his band are 100% legit performing. He has one of the liveliest and crowd oriented shows I’ve ever seen. And for a white boy Norwegian by god can he rap. He writes his own music, and is a fairly positive role model.
I can vouch he’s better live than he is on record. Which is something you can’t say for most artists these days.
He’s big in Norway, but that means not much, and in comparison to the mocked up shite that goes international these days, this guy, a genuine musician and performer definitely deserves it. He’s far from ugly either so he’s extremely marketable. So do me a favour and give him a listen, performing Meeko (video isn’t amazing sorry, not mine).
Put your hands up, pump a fist and dance to his catchier-poppy songs, or feel the genuine emotion of some of his other songs. The guy does great covers as well, taking a song and shaping and warping it into his own style. Which at odds with pop and hip-hp he tends to break up a concert with slowed down jazz and old school funk.
What’s not to love?
