Egil Olsen

The idiosyncratic singer/songwriter Egil Olsen has, since his 2007 solo debut I am a Singer/Songwriter released several critically acclaimed albums, as well as a couple of live albums, on his own little label. He has also made music for films and TV, and has recently gotten several songs featured in the game Dreamfall – where he also shows up as an animated character with an in-game concert! Beside producing and playing most instrument himself, he also makes his own music videos and artwork, and has an autobiographical comic strips about the “somewhat pathetic life of a relatively unknown superstar.

Egil Olsen has done countless shows in Norway, China, Japan, US and Germany. He is known for his entertaining live shows where his honest and intimate music is carefully balanced with his unpredictable humor and charming stage presence. He performs mostly solo, but often appears on stage with musicians and different band constellations.
