I was just notified that “Classical & Crossover Magazine” have featured me on their digital front page & have posted my latest video, which is really cool of them!
You can read it here: “How Cheap Will You Sell Your Soul?”
In addition I was also featured by a digital Heavy Metal Magazine today, so talk about contrast! I love it! This is fun 😀
Thanks a lot to Elisabeth for writing the press release! I had not seen it until now. It looks really good! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
On the 20th of this month Norway’s equivalence of BBC aired a great program focusing on female guitar players! It was awesome to receive nationwide radio play for my metal & classical music! Hear The Interview Here!
I’m happy that I was asked about online haters & bullies, since this gave me the opportunity to highlight that I’ve seen other female guitar players complain about this as well. In short it means that you don’t stand alone if you are in the receiving end of putrid hatred as a woman playing the guitar. If you are self-critical and take what you are doing very seriously it is especially important to remember that hatred can come your way just because of your gender, because people don’t like your face, or your hair, or your outfit, or whatever; I know of course that there are people out there who complain about sexism when there is none and play the gender card just because; this is a pity because real sexism does exists and it should be addressed so that other women will know that they do not stand alone! Once again I am aware that this is a multifaceted issue … I just don’t want creative females to feel unwelcome or to be chased away from unleashing their musical creativity upon the world!
Thanks again to those of you out there who support what I do! I really appreciate it! 🙂
The loose threads will not be loose for much longer.
I look forward to releasing my 3rd body of work and I think that this will finally give people a full impression of who I am and what I can do as an artist!
I cannot wait! 🙂 I feel very encouraged by the fantastic feedback that I’ve received so far! Now the challenge is to get people to hear about it & spread the word!

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”
The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.
There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!
If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.
I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!
If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”
I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.
Yet now I find myself here:
Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!
Thanks a lot to those of you who’ve supported my work! Please keep on doing it! 🙂

Hi there to my subscribers & followers 🙂 I’m happy to announce that my 1st Lyric book is out as an e-book 😉 You can pre-order it on Amazon for Kindle, but it is already available for purchase on iBook 🙂 I decided to make this as there were many who asked me about the lyrics for my songs.
This illustrated eBook contains ALL the original songs that I’ve published for sale so far.
I’m certainly excited as it always feels good to bring a project to completion, no matter what it is. I always like that feeling of closure.
I’ve had many people asking me about sheet music for my original music as well. I’ve taken this to heart and would of course also like to see that happening, but I would have to hire someone to do it for me as I don’t write notations myself. I would also have to supervise the process completely as my original music contains many layers of different guitar parts, obviously all the details would have to be included, same with all the different background vocals; etc. I am aware of the fact though that there is a serious request for it.
People have been asking me how they can read my blog chronologically, well there is an archive function in the sidebar of this page, it’s visible on proper screens but you have to click on the + sign in the upper left corner if you are to see all the content of the sidebar on a phone.
On this blog I release entries about a variety of topics, the blog has gotten a bit political as of late due my general concern regarding a number of issues. It has become evident for example that classical liberals have been marginalised as “cultural marxists” who hate the west are being presented as the “real” left. It seems like American politics have gone completely mad with politicians literally encouraging Americans to go out “and fight in the streets.” College campuses are at this point coming across as “lost causes” with people behaving more like revolutionaries rather than civilised “concerned” citizens. It’s important to not become a tool, a so-called “useful idiot” something that could happen to the best of us. You are not without empathy just because you believe in border-control. It’s vital to not dehumanized opponents.
I’m convinced that the behaviour of so-called “SJWs” & especially the new forms of identity politics, combined again with ethnomasochism and a refusal to admit to the fact that we have genuine enemies, are good reasons for people to abandoned the modern left, I believe though that we have to be careful not to reject all liberal principles in protest, as this could bite us in the ass at a later stage. When the choice seems to be between encouraged hatred towards law enforcement and “politically correct” socially enforced, totalitarian, unrestrained liberalism with a globalist outlook vs. support for law enforcement, the military and a love for one’s country & heritage, it’s not hard to see what would be sounder to side with. We’ve pretty much arrived at a point where people willing to defend their country, or leaders prioritising their own people are perceived as completely evil.
Kindness is only valid if it is on a global scale. Which is why political violence against ones opponent is now being “promoted” as politically correct. If you’ve first dehumanized those who disagrees with you, labelling them as evil, why would it be wrong to attack them? This type of thinking should make everyone feel concerned. It’s dangerous.
I will not attack you, nor hate you if you disagree with me, but I will become concerned if I’m threatened. This will probably become more and more common as any type of “traditionalist” or “conservative” views are being hailed as “wrong-think.” In fact it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we are entering into a future where persecution will become common and justified when you see how people my age and younger are behaving. The level of intolerance is staggering. (UPDATE: Generation Z are very conservative. And my predictions can therefore be mistaken. Which is very good. I’ve heard it said several times as of late that younger people are increasingly more traditionalist. I’m very happy to hear this.)
This lack of respect towards other’s ideas is poison and resembles the intolerance of militant Islam, where a verbal attack on the prophet or a drawing of Muhammad will be perceived as a declaration of war.
Not identifying the enemy doesn’t make you nicer, it makes you self-destructive. Of course this doesn’t mean that you should be trigger happy at any occasion but rather cautious, vigilant and aware.
