After 12 studio albums and two Norwegian Grammy Awards, Bjørn Berge releases his new album “HEAVY GAUGE”.

The album consists of nine original songs, six of them with Bjørn alone with his guitar and three tracks with his band. All songs this time are written by Bjørn Berge and Ellis Del Sol.


Bjørn has never been afraid to mix different genres on an album, and neither is he this time. Through this album we’re served exquisite guitar playing, ballads, blues and what Bjørn himself calls it; “Good time music!”.

Bjørn has throughout his career built up a solid live reputation as a world-leading guitarist, which means that he regulary visits major jazz, blues and rock festivals around Europe and North America. His concerts are not always easy to describe, as he combines several genres such as folk, jazz, blues and rock.

On stage, Bjørn usually performs his own material, but he also makes his own unique and hefty interpretations and versions of artists such as; Motorhead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Morphine and Joni Mitchell, to name a few.

Besides being one of the greatest European blues men, Bjørn is a true musical phenomenon. Bjørn Berge has been a well-known name for almost 20 years. He has a voice like gravel and broken glass, and those who have seen this man on stage rate him highly as a true performer and virtuoso of the twelve-string guitar. With him, the blues seems to have no limits!
