Feeling a bit camera shy


The promising young artist Peer Gynt was born in Trondheim (Norway) in 1971. He is known in his native country for his powerful way of playing the guitar, and particularly his breathtaking stage-show, which regularly triggers the smoke alarm detectors of the clubs.

His Norwegian descent is impressively reflected in his music. The 'King of Mountain Blues', as he is called in the press, understands excellently to combine Norwegian folktunes with blues and rock elements. The result is powerful bluesrock with sparkling folkelements, which makes you feel like dancing and jumping around.

Peer Gynt's lyrics are fairytales. People, who know him, claim that he writes about himself and his life. After all, the conjunction between these two is what's interesting for the listener

Gynt says: "Since I'm blending Norwegian folktones into raw, loud and powerful bluesrock inspired by old age wisdom I think it gives the worldmusic a new genre and new dynamics." He further explains: "Many decades ago the fairytales told us that the Norwegian fiddleplayers who played these tones where playing along with the devil. In many ways these historical fairytales are similar to the story about the American blues legend Robert Johnson, who made his pact with the devil at the crossroads."

Peer Gynt is accompanied by Lars Fish (bass) and B.P. Hovik (drums and percussion). This dynamic rhythmsection plays the grooves with a lot of humour, compassion and love. B.P. Hovik follows the tradition of Keith Moon from the legendary group 'The Who'. He has created a unique style probably, because he teaches how to play the drums, and because he is left-handed. Twenty-three year old bassplayer Lars Fish is a calm, funny, humorous, and brilliant breed apart. He spreads a good mood on the road and delivers a pleasant atmosphere.
