comic strip

every day (except sundays) i’m doing a comic strip called ‘eg, egil olsen’ (i, egil olsen) for dagbladet (national newpaper) about life as a singer / songwriter.

(it’s in norwegian. i will try and translate them all. one day.)

new music video

i turn into a werewolf in the music video to my new single ‘find a way’. and as if that’s not enough, the video also features two hot chicks being eaten + my brave little pug hellboy. a surprisingly talented actor dog. very professional. really. good hellboy.

new single + music video

wild life summer

this last month i’ve played at norway’s highest festival on top of a mountain, at an old farm, by a little pond in the south of norway and in a boat house by one of the most beautiful fiords in the world. very outdoorsy, very wild. it must be the beard.

i even did a show at an art gallery, where i also did a live drawing performance to guitar hero stig ulv’s wonderful music. guess what i drew? mountains. and trees. it must be the beard.
