I have borrowed my mother's accordion, stolen a russian display mandolin and own an ocean blue guitar with two broken frets and a whole lot of love stains, with which I make music that always sound bigger in my head than what ends up on tape.

Biography

My name is Pl Moddi Knutsen, and I come from an island called Senja in the far north of Norway. I have borrowed my mother's accordion, stolen a russian display mandolin and do own an ocean blue guitar with two broken frets and a whole lot of love stains, with which I make and play music that's always a little larger in my head than what ends up on tape. My first small concert was held in 2004, and since then, things have grown little by little, with by:Larm and the ya Festival in Oslo as possible peaks of hooray.

The music I make lives a life of its own. Sometimes you can find it as a huge band session with noise and loudness, while sometimes it's so small and discreet that you might want to sing along to help it continue. The songs grow a little for every winter that passes by, just like any child would.

The autumn of 2009, I'm going to Reykjavik along with by band to record my first album, which is to be released in 2010.

Set List

What I play will always be dependent of the day, the musicians i bring, and the place. I mainly sing in English, and vary my use of instruments, though guitar and accordion will always be in the middle of my attention.
