I am a Norwegian songwriter and a longtime member of the highly succesful Norwegian band Return. I played guitar and was the main songwriter from Return's start.
I've been fortunate enough to have worked with producers such as Rafe McKenna ( Foreigner, Bad Company), Per Blom & Thomas Witt (Ex. Europe guitarist John Norum), Robert O. Engen (pre.prod. A-ha) and Ole Evenrude (Ace of Base, A-Teens).
