Kreg Viesselman Trio
Wednesday 07 November 2012 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Oslo-based American singer/songwriter KREG VIESSELMAN embarks upon his first tour of the UK as a trio. in November. His tremendous voice, along with his ability to wield it like the remarkable and refined instrument it has become, commands the attention of audiences in the most humane way.
To experience Viesselman’s live show is to take in not only a master of delivery at work, but to be invited into an intimate and brightly lit space where you are constantly surprised by the subtle detail in his work, painted in earthen tones, but revealing great contrasts. Its nakedness and striking completeness have you transfixed from the moment he opens his mouth. It has been called “soul” and “folk”, for want of better terms, but whatever one calls it, hearing Kreg Viesselman sing is an intense experience. He deals with humanity in its
basic and most instinctive forms, in a style that belies a deep human intelligence and
wry wit. His is a narrative voice, at once both brutal and touching, which deserves its
place in the canon of great American songwriters.
In 2011, Kreg signed to Columbia/Sony Music Norway, who are releasing his next album,
“If You Lose Your Light” in 2012. His last album “The Pull” (Red Kite, 2006) spent several
weeks at number 1 in the Euro-Americana chart after a hail of beaming reviews.
