About Me


Right now it's to explore all the jazz of NYC!


Well my first name is Bård which is a really Norwegian name. In english its pronounced " Bored" So that is always my first line when i meet new people. " Hi, im Bored. And they go: "Already.."? " well i been Bored all my life" and so on.. :)
Well, i`m 31 years old. Born and raised in Skien Norway. Music has always been the passion since i was 7 years old. I picked up my grandmothers old organ and started to play melodies by ear. I played many instruments like Piano, Drums, Trumpet, but now i have a master degree in jazz guitar from The Sibelius academy in Helsinki Finland. I live in Oslo and my days spins around teaching guitar and playing jazz gigs. Im also in a tribute band to The Beatles called The Daytrippers where i play the role of John Lennon. We dress up in suits and so on.. Great Fun!
I haven`t been traveling so much, but i`m going to New York this July.
I really looking forward to experience the city where all my favourite music comes from! Im also interested in painting arts and theater. I guess everything that is about personal expression.
I concider myself as a person that respects other people. Im kind of well organized and i`m not fuzzy. I get along well with all kind of people. I feel openminded. Do not take myself to serious. I have a sense of humor and i like to hang out for some drinks and sing and play guitar at partys!
