BJORN RIIS

New album "Everything To Everyone" out on April 8th!

 Aside from being one of the founder members, lead guitarist, producer and main songwriter of one of Norway's most successful Prog bands AIRBAG, BJORN RIIS is also becoming a prolific solo artist, with his fourth full-length album set for release on Karisma Records on the 8th April.
 Titled Everything To Everyone, the album contains six epic new tracks that deal with human emotions and the fear of losing oneself in the constant effort to meet every, often perceived, expectation as Bjorn explains:
"I was inspired by Dante’s Inferno when I started to write. A bit pretentious perhaps, but I’ve always been fascinated by that very personal journey and the search for some kind of piece or redemption, while being both mentored and hurt along the way. Musically, I wanted to take the listener on that journey, experiencing both hope and anxiety."
 For Everything To Everyone, Bjorn has, once again, revisited his highly successful partnership with long-time collaborator Vegard Kleftas Sleipnes, who, as well as co-producing the album with Bjorn also handled the engineering and mixing. Mastering was carried out by Jacob Holm-Lupo (WHITE WILLOW and THE OPIUM CARTEL).
 In addition to Bjorn’s vocals and celebrated guitar playing, Everything To Everyone also features guest appearances from Henrik Bergan Fossum (AIRBAG), Kristian Hultgren (WOBBLER), Simen Valldal Johannessen (OAK) and Norwegian singer/songwriter MIMMI TAMBA.
