YOU BEGIN WHERE EVERYTHING ENDS
CLOCKS DON’T COUNT
THE SOUND OF YOU AND ME
A TASTE OF WHAT’S TO COME
»Quite apart from being a great friend, he is the most talented musician I have ever met in my life.«
– Danny Cavanagh, Anathema –
FROM ALTA, FAR UP NORTH IN NORWAY,
Petter Carlsen continues to make his beautifully personal and atmospheric music, reflecting the cold, dark and wild surroundings of the north. His debut album »You Go Bird« was released in 2009 and turned Norwegians »all ears« to the singer/songwriter. His second album »Clocks Don’t Count« was out in 2011 and later (2012) in Europe through UK indie label Function Records. It was awarded with great reviews all over Europe.
After earning fans all over the world with both albums guesting UK band Anathema, Danish artist Tim Christensen and clubs and festivals in Europe, Petter Carlsen is gaining ground as an artist.
In September 2014 Petter released his third album »Sirens«, produced by Wetle Holte (Eivind Aarset, Anja Garbarek) and mixed by Christer A. Cederberg (Anathema). »Sirens« reveals a change of course, contaning more rythmical -and electronic elements, but still it is the strong signature of Petters voice that captivates the listener. Beautifully atmospheric, his music has been identified by Anathema (UK) as something very special.
Indeed, Danny Cavanagh states that »once I heard Petter Carlsen’s incredible voice and beautiful songwriting, as well as his warm personality, I always felt that he would be connected to and part of the inner circle of Anathema for a long time to come. Quite apart from being a great friend, he is the most talented musician I have ever met in my life.«
