Music

Press


quite frankly, one of the best songwriters this country has ever produced...music which a world, sick of it's own superficiality, longs for. - 24 hours vancouver


sometimes aggressively raw, sometimes tenderly fragile, words spilling out in a fevered stream of consciousness, this conjures up everything that is genuinely invigorating in decent post punk, rootsy alt-whatevver you wanna call it. - americana-uk


oldseed has flourished quietly but remarkably. he's captured whatever it is that makes great folk music so compelling - exclaim! magazine


i'm serious. holy crap, is this album good. every line is so good it makes me crazy not to have written it. - ffwd calgary


"you've got nothing but light, let it shine", with it;s hick harmonies, lazy harmonica and eerie banjo plucking, is one of the most god beautiful songs of the year. - globe and mail

Bio

oldseed

oldseed has been playing since 2001 when he left all his various bands and started writing songs for acoustic guitar.  the idea was to make the act of being a working musician as simple as possible.  since then he has played around 1400 shows in 30 countries.  he has made 8 records, pressing the last 6 to vinyl and selling them off the stage (most records are out of print). 

his latest record "bloom/burn" was recorded live to master tape in geyso castle in mansbach, germany.  the record was released in september 2017 to great reviews by german imprint bekassine records.

oldseed has shared the stage with smog, lambchop, mike watt and scott kelly to name a few.  festivals of note include incubate (tillburg, nl), great northern arts (inuvik, ca) and stimmen (lorach, de)

-the music of oldseed has been called ghostly, fragile, god beautiful. his performances have raised more than a few tears in the eye and hairs on the back of the neck. bjerring's decades of diy touring show in his ease onstage and his ability to know when to take himself seriously and when not to.
