WELCOME TO MY
The album Breeze from the artist KNUT will be released June 5th 2020. Breeze is where jazz meets electronica - atmospheric, meditative and hypnotic music from Norway. KNUT has an extensive track record both as guitarist, composer and producer in the music scene both in Norway and internationally including ambient jazz solo albums. KNUT has moved from electric to acoustic nylon guitar as his main instrument on this album. Previous albums were released under his full name Knut Bjørnar Asphol, now it’s shorter, catchier and a lot easier to remember for music lovers worldwide - KNUT.
Breeze is an exhilarating album where two distinctive musical expressions are combined. Where one side is electronic with new programmed edges, the other contrasts into softer moods and vibes which are grounded on strong melodies. It is warm and beautiful. The album combines lo-fi recordings in “Butterfly” and “Breeze”, dynamic and groovy in “Deep”, “Flix” and “Vertigo” and a lavish orchestral aura with joik in “Polar”.
Breeze is where the nylon guitar is wrapped into different expressions and atmospheres. Here, the organic sound meets the electronic flavour. All put together into great songs perfect as a soundtrack for the summer and your favourite playlists.
Knut says; I have always been strongly connected to the acoustic nylon guitar, an instrument I began to play at the age of 5. Some years later I picked up an electric guitar but the nylon guitar has always been my instrument of choice and my primary tool for composing classical, jazz and popular music. After many albums where I have used the electric guitar to create big atmospheres, I wanted to strip it down and go with a new organic approach. The nylon guitar gives me an honest response to what I want to express with my music.
We hope Breeze will inspire you to listen to it, relax with it, write about it, play it on your media channel and put the tracks on your favourite playlists.
Have a great summer!
