SpitzBergen Residents

    SpitzBergen Residents

    SpitzBergen Rezidents is a band that has grown out of the initiative "Music in prison and freedom", where the participants have previously served time in prison and received music training both during and after serving time.

    They are based in Bergen and have previously played several concerts at Garage, the Church's city mission and various conferences under the auspices of the correctional service. In 2010, the band released the CD "If U knew what I know", where all music and lyrics were written by the band's guitarist and vocalist Bjørn Dahl.

    Strong socially critical lyrics and an intense live show are the band's trademark. Perfect for the Karlsøy Festival!

    The band consists of:
    Bjørn Dahl – Guitar/Vocals
    Leif Gunnar "Bue" Wedahl – Guitar/Vocal/Choir
    Mohammed Soleman – Percussion
    Roar Ruus Finsås – Bass/Chorus
