Hello and merry Christmas everyone. I have made a video for a Christmas song I wrote for Alternativ Julekalender 2012. The song is called Santa Couldn´t Make It This Year and is about everyone not able to celebrate Christmas like "most people" in the western world. The video premiered on Namdalsavisa.

Here are a few more pics from my trip to Nuuk! The last week in Nuuk, my friend Tonje Eliasson came to stay. Tonje is a journalist and a photographer based in Copenhagen. We are working on some exciting projects which hopefully will bring us back to Greenland soon.
Thanks to Kulturkontakt Nord and The Royal Norwegian Embassy for making this trip possible!
Greetings from Nuuk, Greenland! I've been here for a few weeks to write some new Stina Stjern stuff. The next album will be very much inspired by the fact that my Grandfather was a hunter in Northeast Greenland in 1954/1955. He was then in his mid twenties. He lived alone in the ice with his sledge dogs, shooting polar bears. The cabin where he lived was, and still is, located at Kap Herschell. I'm planning on going there, but that is an adventure that has to wait for now... Nuuk was therefore the closest I could get the exciting tales of the young hunter at this point! It's been inspiring indeed and a few new songs just sprung out of the wonderful mix of icebergs and polka dancing! (I actually can't get enough of this Polka dancing...)
These days I'm busy writing new stuff for our upcoming album. Last week the Stina Stjern band was hanging out here in Oslo, working on a few new songs. We even played a show at Adam & Eva Grønlandskvartalene's summer party.
Stina Stjern played a show at Musikkfest, Oslo last Saturday! We played at the Internasjonalen/Youngstorget - stage. It was great fun playing both good old and brand new stuff!
I am playing a free show tomorrow 2nd of June at Youngstorget, Oslo. I go on stage 18.30. Hope to see you there!
Please check out this brand new design, Pocknit! I'm so getting one of these lovely scarves! Goes well with my song Tuning don't you think?
Guess what! Early next year I am moving to Oslo, Norway. I therefore figured it would be more fun to have a moving sale instead of dragging a little pile of vinyl records all the way from Copenhagen to Oslo. I am therefore selling my vinyl of Days Like Ways for € 15. The price includes shipping (world wide). The offer is for a limited time only (as I am not moving forever), so be quick. Click here and go mad!
