Gisle Torvik

Bio: Gisle Torvik born 2nd of June 1975 in Bergen, Norway is a Norwegian musician from Tørvikbygd in Hardanger. Amazingly he didn't pick up the guitar before at the age of 17, but is still considered as one of the most talented Nordic jazz guitarists. Torvik released his first album in 1999 called Naken uten gitar which translates to Naked without guitar, where among others Sigmund Groven and Petter Wettre contributed. The album Frozen Moment was released in 2009 featuring Hilde Norbakken on vocals, to good reviews. This was his first album combining vocals and guitar as lead voices. In march 2011 his song I remember reached the semi-final of ISC International Songwriting Competition. Festivalmag says: There is a Nordic melancholic and frost in the tunes, just like the albums of Jan Garbarek, Mari Boine and Terje Rypdal. This puts Torvik straight into a nordic jazz tradition that is world known. Torvik works as a composer, musician, arranger, producer and conductor as well as being a guest instructor. These days he is making music to his upcoming trio album, where the new tune Tranquil Fjord will be featured.
