Biography

Odd Nordstoga (1972-) is a musician from Vinje in Telemark, Norway. In 2004 he went from relative obscurity to become the country’s biggest selling artist, with the phenomenal success of his first solo album proper, “Luring”. The album, a fusion of pop and folk music, has to date shifted more than 150.000 copies in Norway. Nordstoga is married to Hilde Marit Kvile and they have two children together.

Nordstoga comes from a hugely musical family. Both parents, Ellen and Olav Nordstoga, and brother Aasmund Nordstoga (additionally famous as a TV presenter, radio comedian and actor in commercials) have released albums as well.

His career as a recording artist spans 8 years. He made his debut as a recording artist in 1997 with the band Something Odd and their self-titled debut. This album earned them a record deal with BMG Norway and they swiftly released the follow up “Solreven” in 1998. Two minor radio-hits, the beautiful “Fuggel i Karmen” and “Ingen eg kjenner”, came out of this album, but the album sold poorly and the band was dropped from their label. In 2000, Odd Nordstoga changed the name of Something Odd to simply Nordstoga, signed to the Norwegian label Grappa and released a self titled album. A couple of minor radio hits, ‘”Dag”’ and “Bie på deg”, ensued. Nordstoga won the prestigious Edvardprisen Award for “Bie på Deg”. However, soon afterwards they disbanded.
