    After her band Gåte went on hiatus on New Year’s Eve 2005, Gunnhild Sundli focussed on her acting career and has for the past four years worked with Trønderlag Teater.

Snorri Helgason (IS)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Gamla
    Snorri Helgason, formerly of Sprengjuhöllin, is a singer-songwriter from Reykjavik, Iceland. At age 19, Snorri decided to devote his life to the only thing that ever truly interested him – music. He taught himself to play guitar, sing and write songs. When Sprengjuhöllin went on hiatus in 2009, Snorri recorded a solo album focusing on the folk and Americana influences at the centre of his musical tastes. The album, “I’m Gonna Put My Name On Your Door” was released in Iceland in November of 2009 and in Europe and the US in December 2010 through Kimi Records, to the usual critical acclaim. Since 2009, Snorri has toured excessively, building a diverse and spread-out fan base while honing his craft as a performer and songwriter. He’s played shows in some far flung parts of the world like Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Faenza, Italy and performed sold-out shows in international music nexus points such as New York, Berlin and London. His personal, understated yet intense live shows, whether playing solo or with a band, have garnered positive reviews from blogs and magazines all around the world. With his home grown and self-taught approach to songwriting, Snorri has been favorably compared to singer-songwriter greats like Paul Simon, Harry Nilsson and Neil Young. While his music resonates with past greats, his mixing of diverse influences of everything from soul to Britpop to glam-rock into his primarily folk-based songs, not to mention his Icelandic background, leaves us with something entirely unique. Snorri is now based in London. He released his sophomore solo album, “Winter Sun” in Iceland in August 2011. The album was produced by Icelandic indie-pop great Sindri Már Sigfússon (Seabear, Sin Fang) and has received unanimous critical praise domestically.

Beglomeg (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 1:00am - 1:30am @ Gamla
    Beglomeg is a mechanism built up by hypnotic rhythms under a retractable bass machine with brass tubes that goes up to an upper part, where psychedelic death funk is being processed by a spanish archivist and a hungarian doctor into giant flashing bulbs of buttered butlers and transcendental european bastards dripping bossa, rumba, prog, imitated italian library, Asia. And maybe even the odd super-easy? Beglomeg, a dansband for the living dead, a music box for cockroaches.

Mikael plays Balkan sax until he sweats buckets and Marte sings so hard her soul almost springs out of her mouth. Her vocals have roots in Bulgarian traditions but she’s also been strongly influenced by Norwegian, Indian and Arabian vocal techniques and yes, you’re reading this correctly, heavy metal. They have just released “HURRA”, a cornucopia of strong emotions and meaty beats. The lyrics are delivered in Norwegian, English, Bulgarian and Danish, a crazy mix, just like the music. The members in Megafon are full-time musicians in their own right and work with the likes of Trentemøller, Bjørn Svin, Fleshquartet, Jacob Groth, Frans Bak, Mikael Simpson & Sølvstorm, Kira Skov, Düreforsøg amongst others.

Bendik Brænne (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 9:00pm - 9:30pm @ Gamla
    Bendik Brænne has for many years been the man in the shadows. As a sax player for a whole host of different artists he’s stood behind the curtain, at the very periphery of the action, with neither lights nor monitors more times than he cares to count. In his twenty four years of life on earth, he’s played the world over and has never for a minute thought of jacking it all in. In May of 2011 he swapped his sax for a mic and went to the Mecca for the world’s country trash, Nashville. With the aim of making an alt-country record he enticed the likes of Bobby Keys, Bryan Owings, Fats Kaplin, Tim Marks, Steven Sheehan, Andy Hall, and Rob McNelly in to the studio with him. The results are almost ready. Stay tuned!
