I adore the folk-pop fusion that's so unique in his music, and of course - his uber sexy voice. Grin.
I'm from Singapore (a million miles from Norway), and I must say he's not well known here. I can't seem to find any of his albums so far, and yes, not even in the larger music stores. Sigh. :(
Anyways, cheers to all. :)

We've just finished the new video for "Fall At Your Feet" which will be the first proper single from "The Tourniquet". It was shot on the Devil's Island, outside Bergen, Norway at Even's house. It should be on your screens before the end of this month.
The single is b/w exclusive new track "This Bird Can Never Fly" which was recorded in the same sessions as the album.
Lots more news to come soon, but it's all set for a mid-November release.
Thanks for all your support. If you don't yet own "The Tourniquet" yet, we obviously recommend you should - and you don't even need to go to the shops. It's at amazon.co.uk for £8.99.

Hello Magnet friends,
The new album from MAGNET "The Tourniquet" is released on Monday 22nd August in UK.
It's preceeded by a very limited single "Hold On" the week before (15 August). This comes in a twin 7" only format and the tracks will also be available for download via I-tunes. A limited number come with a hand-written note from Even, and all 7" contain Magnet stickers. The single includes exclusive tracks "The Mute" and "Good Mourning".
One of the 7"'s will also contain a VIP Atlantic Gold Pass, the person who finds this gets a flight to Norway to see Magnet perform!
To celebrate these releases MAGNET makes a rare live appearance (with full band) in London.
Wednesday 17th August
LONDON 93Ft EAST, Brick Lane, EC1
Tickets are available here or by calling 020 7403 3331 or 020 7734 8932
We hope you're all keeping well and hope to see you at this show.
We'll be back in touch shortly with news of the Album and Single in more detail
Magnet will play a full band show on 17th August at LONDON 93 FEAT EAST. There will be a UK tour in September.
Here are some pictures I thought you might want to see:
They are both from a concert he did in Oslo a week ago together with Bigbang and two other bands.
And this one is from a similar concert in Trondheim.
