Biography

The wind swept land of Norway has created great explorers like Roald Amundsen, Thor Heyerdahl and Leif Ericson . . . people with enough creative desire to expand the boundaries of their times.
Now, from Oslo, comes a new creative talent. Chameleo, singer, songwriter and talented musician, started playing piano at the age of ten. By the time he was in his twenties, the tall, dark performer had caught the ear of famous Norwegian producer Anders Moberg from Goldmine Music, with amazing results.

The resulting EP won a number of contests, including ones sponsored by the biggest radio stations in the country. Feedback was tremendous, so the pair returned to the studio to record an album of hit material and the album became a reality 6 months later. All the expenses have beeen paid by the artist himself.

Chameleo, whose influences include Matchbox 20, Counting Crows, Joshua Kadison and The Calling, writes rock/pop tunes that are accessible enough to appeal to a massive audience, with lyrics about everyday life problems and joys that audiences can relate to.

The record-buying public has proven their love of music from Northern Europe (ABBA, Ace of Base, The Cardigans, Bjork and A-ha) as well as piano-driven rock like Coldplay.

All the ingredients are in place:

1 The right time
2 The right sound
3 The right looks
4 The right attitude
5 The right management....

....to make Chameleo a highly profitable investment, musically and financially.

Lyrics

Chameleon

Written By: Vegard Mordal

I can't decide who I wanna be
The one for them or the one for me
Everybody knows you they are
They can never go to far away

Go to far away....
They want me to change
I change for noone
They want me to say can I be somebody else

I'm a chameleon good enough for me
I'm a chameleon and I will always be
Right behind satisfied

I'm dressing up for someone else
I drink more than I should
My enemies are my best friends
Oh it's a shame when you start to fade

So misunderstood they want me to change
I change for noone
They want me to say can I be somebody else

I'm a chameleon good enough for me
I'm a chameleon and I will always be
Right behind satisfied

One step further is not enough
Two steps more can be too much
One step back and I'm on my way
To be to be to be someone

I'm a chameleon good enough for me
I'm a chameleon and I will always be
Right behind satisfied

Ready to live

Written By: Jan Bjoersland

Now I'm standing on my own two feet again
Left all that mess behind was about to go insane
I don't wanna go back to where I was before
I got so tired of life couldn't take it anymore

Now I can breath now I can see
All the things that I've been looking for
I've made up my mind and left it all behind
Now I'm ready to live

There's no pride in lying here
I won't be a victim of this athmosphere
It's time for me to face the day
It's time for me to wake up and do things my way

Now I can breath now I can see
All the things that I've been looking for
I've made up my mind and left it all behind
Now I'm ready to live

For the first time I'm feeling free
I can't let someone else choose my destiny

Now I can breath now I can see
All the things that I've been looking for
I've made up my mind and left it all behind
Now I'm ready to live

It's ok

Written By: Jan Bjoersland

Southern rain falls down from the sky
Telling me that something's wrong
Out on the streets don't know where to go
Darkness grows inside of me

It's ok everything is gonna be allright someday
You'll get back on your feet again
Noone can take away your pride

Step by step day by day
I slowly learn to understand
A wicked world full of despair
With silent cries everywhere

It's ok everything is gonna be allright someday
You'll get back on your feet again
Noone can take away your pride

Sometimes out of control out of reach about to roar
Just like floating debree
You'll make the beach an open door

It's ok everything is gonna be allright someday
You'll get back on your feet again
Noone can take away your pride
