Even before releasing his debut album the then 24 years old Sebastian Waldejer was honored as the official "Artist Of The Year" by the culture council of his hometown Stavanger, Norway. The combination of well written lyrics, beautiful melodies and his DIY approach quickly established him as a talent to keep an eye on.
After the well received release of his debut album "Rise Of The Urban Child", Sebastian toured Great Britain as support act for Thomas Dybdahl. After the tour Thomas invited Sebastian to join his regular band ("That Great October Sound") as a multi-instrumentalist.
Sebastian decided to put his own gigging on hold to tour with Thomas and hone his skills as a musician and live performer. He never stopped writing music though, and in 2011 Sebastian released his new single "We Never Get Away Anymore", co-produced by Thomas Dybdahl.
August 2013 Sebastian Waldejer releases the first of two EP's this fall. The theme of "Battles EP" are four love stories, from four very different individuals who all are battling their thoughts and emotions. The songs on the EP is set in a darker mood than Sebastian's previous releases. The darker mood is balanced by playfulness in the details and catchy melodies.
The EP is produced by the artist himself, except "Stop Taking A Part", which was recored at Braund Studios (NYC) and produced by Caleb Lindskoog.

ELISE VATSVAAG - «Ooh La La» Video

Elise Vatsvaag´s new single «Ohh La La» will be released Friday 25. February. Check out the new video:

On dreary days when everything seems blasé, Elise Vatsvaag’s flirtatious voice and playful lyrics are a pick-me-up. The small-framed Norwegian singer-songwriter has been compared to Ingrid Michaelson and Katie Melua for her style and songwriting prowess, but her unique charm is the result of her innocent outlook on life and youthful zest. In 2009 Elise signed with the Norwegian management company Great Moments, and since then she has grown to be among one of the most interesting up-and-coming artists in the west coast area of Norway. In January 2011 Elise Vatsvaag moved to New York City in order to work on her debut album.
