Biography

Skogmus (Translated: Apodemus, or Forest-mouse.) were created in 2010 at the music departement of Stavanger Cathedral-school which is a high school in Stavanger, Norway.

Band members are: Casper Hatlestad (guitar, vocals), Stian Nilsson (drums) and Anders Harestad (Bass) Set in a barrack at school and played in a break when they seized the first song "Pisst Off Professor". Casper and Stian took a break to get some fresh air, and saw a mouse running past them. And just came across the band's name "Skogmus"(As translated Apodemus or Forest-mouse).

They were clearly influenced by the 70's musically. Skogmus started playing 70s rock and pulled it a little more heavy and got their own style: stoner inspired, sweaty 70's bluesrock with drums so loud and solid as a rock, a heavy bass, and a guitar with a thin overdrive and a slight hint of delay.

After this young trio started in October 2010 the band has just grown more and more into an pretty popular local band. Increased popularity came along when they started playing at Norwegian festivals, and competitions: coming all the way to the finals in both Emerganza and UKM in 2012 which are some of Norways big competitions for younger musical talents.
Skogmus are clearly influenced by bands such as Wolfmother , The Jimi Hendrix Experience , Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Black Crowes, Pink Floyd and Ram Jam.

Skogmus released their debut-album simply named "Skogmus" 30 november 2013.
