Making a Dark, Moody Recording in Norway with Bjørn & Britt

This August I traveled to Bergen, Norway to start pre-production on a what will be a beautiful record!  The artists are Bjørn Tomren and Åse Britt Reme Jakobsen, known as Bjørn and Britt.  Their style is a mixture of dark Americana and Norwegian moodiness.  

We spent a few weeks in a great local studio (Solslottet Studio) writing and arranging tunes, and lots of time running around Norway having fun, including a few days rowing a traditional two-person rowboat through the fjords!  

The record will be recorded next spring at the amazing Ocean Sound Recordings in Giske, Norway.



And here's a little sample of the kind of vibe we're working with!
