My new record "Firehouse" is out now on the great clean feed label. I´m very happy with this record. Petter, André and me had been talking about playing together some time, and suddenly, last summer, the three of us were in Oslo at the same time. I decided to book a studio, and without any rehearsal or planning up front, we recorded this record in 6 hours. It was pure magic and we decided to release it. Petter and André are two of my favorite musicians, and I feel that the three of us have a special connection. We will go on a release tour in September. See gig list for more details. Keep in touch.

Best, Gard

Happy new year music lovers! I´m really excited to get 2015 started! Lots of great music is going to happen. I´m going to play a lot of gigs (see gig list) and release a new record with my own trio. It´s going to be a great year! stay in touch for more!!
