Jonas Alaska (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Rockefeller
    Jonas Alaska was one of the most talked about acts after by:Larm 2011 and later in the year he released his self-titled debut L.P. in Norway to rave reviews. In spite of his young age, Jonas is a talented lyricist and songwriter, with his own distinctive sound and a strong voice. After his single “In The Backseat” got some heavy rotation on Norwegian radio over the Summer he again came back with another fantastic track entitled “October”, which he performed live on TV2’s Senkveld and has since gone on to become a Youtube hit. Artists such as Paul Simon, John Lennon and Bob Dylan are often named as Jonas’ musical reference points, but Jonas Alaska is an artist with his very own, distinctive character and who makes music that is not rooted in the past, that is totally relevant to our time. Jonas’ songs vary between heartbreaking soliloquies, ballads with compelling harmonies and uptempo tracks with elements of Americana, folk and pop. All delivered with that trademark distinctive expression, both musically and lyrically. Alaska’s lyrics encompass many themes, be it love, politics or tragedy, but are all themes drawn from every day life that anyone can relate to.
