Biography

Essence of a Session is an alternative rock band with lots of electronic post-rock elements. The band is known for their broad artistic spectre and their unusual variation of styles and musical expressions. In the band’s repertoire you’ll find everything from film scores, powerful instrumental rock, electro-driven tracks, and minimalistic low down piano tunes.

Originated in Norway in early 2005, the band comprises the four members Lasse Kuhlmann (bass, beat-programming), Sigbjorn H. Grimseth (guitars, synth, vocals), Even Hafnor (guitars, vocals) and Martin Andersen (drums, piano).

In 2007, the band got the opportunity to perform on the largest Norwegian Rock Festival – “The Quart Festival”. Alongside bands like the “Beastie Boys”, “Gogo Bordello” and “The Who”, Essence of a Session won over the audience with a striking performance. Up until this point the band had been more of an underground jamming project, but now they quickly earned respect and attention from both critics and underground audiences in Norway.

Today Essence of a Session is known for their originality and unwillingness to go with the flow. Starting out as a instrumental progressive rock band in 2005 the band made a big turn in late 2007 deciding to spend most of the next year working with the combination of music and film.
