Signe Marie Rustad, whom I’ve played bass guitar with for a few years, released her new album Particles Of Faith a few months ago. We’ve played a few shows here and there in Norway to promote it. Last May, our national TV channel, NRK, filmed this short film of us performing in the living room of Signe Marie’s childhood home, a farm called Rustad outside the small town of Elverum. To me this feels like an interesting artifact, as there is a lot of history in the walls of that house.

Hello It’s Me

Signe Marie Rustad, whom I play the bass guitar with, has released the first single today off her forthcoming album called “Particles Of Faith”. In Signe Marie’s own words, it’s “a song about peeling off the layers and finding strength within yourself to take control over your own narrative”.

The song was recorded in May earlier this year at Brageveien Studios in Oslo. It and most of the album is the result of a few sessions that involved the whole band arranging the songs as a group, together with producer Kenneth Ishak.

The single is available now on most streaming platforms.

The album is to be released on February 17, 2023 and can be pre-ordered now.

Ayka Live At Plysh

March 5. 2022

Video performance with Ayka from last week. It’s from a live streamed show called Plysh, led by Bendik, which can be seen in in its entirety for some money at It includes interviews and more performances by Bendik, Fieh and ARY.

The day of the video shoot was super nice and relaxed. Filled with kind of an excitement for the future, shared by a huge amount of very talented hardworking young people. Our line of work has been halted for a long time due to the pandemic. A lot of us haven’t seen each other for a long time either, since we usually socialize at festivals and gigs around the world. Being able to work again feels good. Like I’ve been gone for a long time and now I’m back where I’m supposed to be, contributing with the tools I’m best at swinging. The next morning we sadly woke up to a very different Europe. A world with a much more cloudy future. In a flash, my day before turned into something unimportant.

I hope this unnecessary killing and theft of innocent’s lives, human rights and needs is put to an end as quickly as possible. I can’t imagine the nights you are living through. Working with all my colleagues the day before reminded me of how all of you are exactly the same. Talented and good people who should be living your lives uninterrupted, doing what you know best. But now you forced to flee, hide and fight for your lives. My heart is with you.

My website is up! When I was in my early teens I used to have this tiny, very simple website I wrote myself with HTML language. I loved playing around with it and making small changes here and there. I always wanted to repeat this, but for the last years as the internet has become more advanced I have been procrastinating doing it because it has become far more difficult. Simpler to most I guess, but more difficult to me for some stupid (that’s me!) reason. It is a lot to put your head into and I didn’t want to use a premade website template, I wanted it to be more personal. So it never happened. But now with the help of my best friend, Anders Nodeland Indregard, I finally have my own website again! Anders is a geek just like me, but he is much brighter when it comes to these things. He has put many hours into this, trying to realize my difficult ideas for the design and user experience demands. So I thank him and I encourage other people to not be afraid to contact him if you want your own website! Send me an e-mail or something and I’ll pass you onto him.

I could’ve just made a Facebook page or something. But I wanted a place that was available for ”everybody” with an internet connection. To have the possibility to publish information outside of social media. Which is becoming a more rare thing these days.

Here you’ll find my latest updates, tour dates, discography and contact details. I also have the ”Blogiverse” which will be a place where I can publish small texts about topics I care about.
