Bernhoft launches new website

Written by 

Often described as one of the most talented voices in Norway, Jarle Bernhoft has built his career step by step. From small roles as a child on stage in the Norwegian Opera, via success with heavy rock and a record deal in Los Angeles, to his first soul influenced solo album, Bernhofts music style has taken many bends and detours. He has a distinctive character which is unique in Norwegian music.

His song ‘Stay With Me’ was voted Best r&b song on iTunes in Germany, whereas in his native Norway he was awarded two Grammies, Best Artist and Best Male Artist of the Year.

  • Backstage with Bernhoft

    LONG READ.

    The last time I saw Jarle Bernhoft, he was leaving a bar in Stockholm at 3 am.

    He grabbed his jacket, tucked in his cravat and headed into the cold night air. The applause of the crowd after his performance at the Scandinavian Soul Music Awards earlier in the evening still rang in my ears.

    I mention this as now I follow the Norwegian singer down the stairs to backstage area at the venue Nalen as we prepare to reminisce the past and talk about the future. Meeting artists is part of my job. However, with Bernhoft it never feels like work. It feels like sitting with a charming friend, who welcomes you in and invites you to his table. In fact, he offers me a drink as I enter. Courteous as always.
