Biography

The Source is a name of, at least, eight artists:

1) A Norwegian jazz band which was put together in the autumn of 1993.At the time, The Source was: Øyvind Brække - Trombone, Trygve Seim - Saxophones, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten - Bass, and Per Oddvar Johansen - Drums. All four has studied at the jazzsection of Trøndelag Musicconservatory - the only education-possibilities for jazz-musicians in Norway at the time.

The Source quickly acclaimed a reputation as one of the most exiting bands on the Norwegian scene, both by the press, and the Norwegian jazz-society.
During the summer of 1995, Ingebrigt wanted to give more attention to another group he was playing in, Element, and desided to give the bass-seat in The Source to someone else. This led to a period where The Source tried alot of different settings, but finally Finn Guttormsen joined on bass. He has now left The Source, and they are now joined by Mats Eilertsen. They are known for their willingness to mix almost everything into a rhytmical melting pot. Norwegian christmas songs performed by Arabic vocalists on their “The Source Of Christmas” album is one of many highlights. Playfulness mixed with great musical skills is the essence of their music.

2 ) A UK male producer, John Truelove. The Source originally started out as an alias of unknown origin for Source Records’s 1986 single release “You Got the Love”, feat. Candi Staton. In 1989, DJ Eren, put Candi Staton’s vocals over a track by Jamie Principle called “Your Love” which became a club hit.
