Robert has toured the world relentlessly and has had some journey since signing his first record deal at 25. He’s also played with some of the music world’s biggest artists.
In the summer of 2005 he supported songstress Aimee Mann in the UK and Ireland. And the following months after the release of his eponymous debut he again toured the country with Texas, Natalie Imbruglia, Ray Lamontagne and Jason Mraz. He also was on the bill at Robert Redford’s “Sundance Film Festival 2006″ in Park City sharing the stage with Rufus Wainwright, Imogen Heap and The Weepies.
Robert has done quite a few things since becoming a part of people’s music conscience – he’s played more than 300 shows over the last 6 years, sold out headline shows in London, Paris, Glasgow and in several cities touring Norway. He’s played at festivals in the US, UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and Norway. He’s performed on the biggest music shows and talk shows on TV in Italy, France and England like Taratata, Top of the Pops, MTV Pimp My TV’s and several shows on BBC.
In November 2008 Robert finished off his second record. He produced the record together with Rune Berg (The Margarets, Number Seven Deli). Robert and the band worked on the album at Ocean Sound Recordings, an all-analogue studio situated on the Giske Island, on the stormy shores of West Norway. The record was released on CD in Norway on August 24, 2009 and world wide through digital distribution on the same day.
In support of the album release Robert was touring both solo and with The Extended Band around Norway and the UK.
In preparations for recording his third studio album he toured with Katzenjammer in Germany and supported Lissie in Norway.
The new record RHETORIC (season one) was released on LP and CD in Norway on November 4, 2011. The album is available digitally in all usual outlets world wide except Italy and San Marino where it will have its official release in 2012.
