When I met Olav in the fall of 2014 he was already an established musician. He had TV appearences, concerts and gigs behind him. With the band "The Pop Culture Elite" he also released the album "Perfectly Normal Paranoia" in 2013. Olav is a very capable pianist, and a singer & songwriter. His music has an original and recognizable sound, with a lot of complex harmonies and beats. He also have another and more recent band called "Fylking Fornuft".
My collaborations with Olav has been musically enlightening for the both of us. In 2015 he was featured six times on my album "Living in a Dream". I wrote the songs, and we composed and arranged the them together. His musical touch is particularly noticeable in the bridges and solo parts.
