Biography

Elephant9 is a Norwegian progressive jazz rock/fusion band that started in 2006 under the name Storløkken/Eilertsen/Lofthus before changing their name to Elephant9 the same year. Their music is a modern take on 70’s fusion and hard rock, influenced by Miles Davis on one end and bands like Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Deep Purple on the other. The hammond driven fusion and analogue instrumental pieces drives their music into focused, structured jams, as well as pushing their music into long stretches of progressive rock in a self-assured way. The band collaborated with Swedish guitarist Reine Fiske of Dungen and The Amazing on their latest album, Atlantis.
