A Norwegian in Nashville

Bjarte Hjelmeland has an impressive register as an actor, theatre manager and singer. Now a new chapter as a country artist begins. Hjelmeland has for many years gathered songs with a particularly special meaning for him, by musicians such as Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton and Joan Armatrading. On this album he does them his own way, with Norwegian lyrics mostly written by himself, but some with good help by Edvard Hoem and Kari Iveland.

To get the sound he wanted, Hjelmeland went to Nashville to record the album. “Nashville´s musical scene is said to be the most pulsating in USA, and I have been so lucky as to work with some of the world´s finest studio musicians,” says Hjelmeland. The studio musicians have worked with the greatest of the great, such as Shania Twain, Sheryl Crow, The Rolling Stones, Dolly Parton and Eagles. The producer is the Norwegian-American Leif Johansen, who amongst others has produced albums by Jan Eggum, Silje Nergaard and Rita Eriksen.
