This young man from Norway is paving a unique path of his own in this huge landscape we call Neo-Classic. He makes his music seemingly effortless, but it is a carefully balanced sound world that he creates. The 12-track record is his most personal work yet and an invitation to empty your mind and focus only on the present.
The album is about being in the moment, in much the same way that a child lives only for the here and now and doesn’t fill their mind with worries about the future. “As a child, I could just do things without thinking what else I might do or what could have been more fun,” explains Vetle. “Life was just about sharing a connection with people around me. I was not yet affected by the mental constructs of adult life which take over as we grow up. We lose that freedom and become more confused than ever. But I think that we can feel that youthful connection to pureness and truth even as adults. We just have to stop and be solely in the present moment.”
Vetle about working together:
Getting to know and work with Gijs is a joy. Its rare to find someone who wants to understand the music just as much as the artist. He allows himself to really connect with the work. That in itself is a perfect starting point good results.
