ANDREAS AASE

On «Eon», his sixth solo album, Andreas Aase presents a batch of eight original tunes in a Nordic, acoustic guitar universe. Gentle melodies, modern harmonies and improvisations blend into a completely personal sound on a four-string classical guitar – and in the distance you can hear the inspiration from Scandinavian folk music.

Andreas usually performs alone, as on the records "Tre", "V. (Bach)" and «Eon», but he also enjoys surrounding himself with his favorite musicians, as on the quartet recording "Fir". He has brought his Nordic-sounding guitar music to concert audiences in North America, Germany, Scandinavia and Great Britain, he records for Øra Fonogram, and he plays instruments by luthiers Arnt Rian and Tyko Runesson.
