Sondre Lerche

Sondre Lerche (b. 1982) was only 19 years old when he released his first album, “Faces Down”, in 2001. This won him a Spellemannprisen award as Best Newcomer and was followed by two new albums, “Two Way Monologue” (2004) and “Duper Sessions” (2006).

Ole Paus (b. 1947) made his debut with his album “Der ute – der inne” in 1970. He followed this with “Garman” in 1972 and “Blues for Pyttsan Jespersens pårørende” in 1973. His lyrics were often full of satire and social criticism, making him both popular and controversial. He has given us a wealth of memorable songs, including “Mitt lille land”, “Innerst i sjelen”, “Alt var mye bedre under krigen” and ”Mærsjen og Påsjen”. In 1976 Ole Paus won a Spellemannprisen award for his album “I anstendig-hetens navn” and in 1998 he won the jury’s honorary award.

Åge Aleksandersen (b. 1949) is regarded by many people as Norway’s uncrowned king of rock. He took his first step towards success with his album “Lirekasse” in 1977. The previous year he had also formed his own band, Sambandet. Åge & Sambandet then produced a rapid succession of hit songs, which led to a number of Spellemannprisen (Norwegian Grammy) awards. At the award ceremony in 1984, Åge Aleksandersen sang his way into Norwegian hearts with “Lys og varme”. During the following years, he wrote a number of great hits, such as “Fire pils og en pizza”, “ Rosalita”, “Min dag”, Linedans” and “Trondheimsnatt”. At Spellemannprisen 2006 he won the jury’s honorary award and later the same year was decorated Knight, First Class of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav. As one of five Norwegian artists, Åge Alexandersen was inducted into the Rockheim Hall of Fame in Trondheim in 2011.

His breakthrough came in 1991 with “Mother, I’ve Been Kissed”. This was followed by another four albums, some of which include popular hit songs like “Bullet Me” and “Cries Like A Baby”. He went solo in 1997 with his album “Snowboy” and in 1999 he released a new album, “Here We Go Then, You And I”. This earned him two awards at Spellemannprisen 2001, when he was also voted Artist of the Year.
