Heartfelt Success

THE MEANING OF SUCCESS
How do we define success in a world where incessant focus on the material and external is so starkly contrasted by inequality and struggle for survival? How dare we be so obsessed with our own hoarding and self glorification when the larger part of us, our extended family in the world and mother earth herself calls out for our focused heart connection?

Here’s my definition: Success happens when my heart and soul is enriched by my being, when I follow the song in my heart to it’s most joyous potential and let that joy reverberate in words, music and action into the world at large. My success is not defined by sales or ratings. It is measured only by my passionate involvement and how well I care for the life and talent that is available to me at any given time.

Thank YOU for being part of the passionate musical journey that sent my heart soaring in 2010! Your joyous participation helped my music expand into Sweden, New York, Washington DC, Tennessee, Arizona and more of California, and brought about a glorious gig opportunity in San Francisco for 2011.

THE NORWAY DAY FESTIVAL 2011
On April 30th and May 1st, I will be representing Norway as entertainer at the Norway Day Festival in San Francisco. I have been asked to open the festival, sing the Norwegian and American national anthems, give two feature performances at the main stage (one each day) as well as several pub performances during the day. This is a great honor and I am very excited to create a most delicious music menu for this.

The menu will include songs from my most recent albums, Exposed, Being Totally Alive and Venus Envy, as well as songs from my upcoming musical, Come Hell or High Waters (which is aaaalmost ready!). I also plan to include some of my dad’s material as an honorary part of the performance, since he was one of Scandinavia’s most renowned entertainers of the last century.

Benefitting Relief Efforts in Haiti

I must admit I feel mighty small in the face of such devastating news that we are receiving daily now from Haiti. Words escape me. I’m on emotional overload. I take it in and I take it on. What can I do?

The first thing that comes to mind is to use my talent the best I can to contribute in any way that I can. So, the upcoming concert at Herr Nilsen in Oslo will definitely benefit Haiti. Secondly, the products that I have for sale can also be useful, so I’ll have 25% of all CD sales go to Haiti as well.

Other than that, I believe that our thoughts, prayers and songs and living our lives in alignment with our calling creates great energy for the world at large. So, I will continue to express the song in my heart as powerfully and as joyously as I can with my words, music, teaching and performance.

We all have the power to help and inspire. I’d say, let’s move this world into a better place by aligning with the song in our hearts and by letting that song move us into action in whatever way feels the most natural to each and every one of us. And let us listen to each other, really listen, and see how and where we can contribute most effectively to the big chorus of love and consciousness expansion that propels us forward in this time-space reality.

Let us listen to the song of Haiti and contribute with our individual hearts and voices in whatever way it moves us. We can do a lot of good here. Let’s do it!

Here’s a video of me singing my song Little Angel, recorded live at TV Follo’s Christmas special in Norway. Little Angel can be found on my CD’s, Exposed and Venus Envy.

Exposed

New CD in the making.

I am working on a new album entitled Exposed. The idea is to explore just how honest I can get with my vocal expression. And, since I am accompanying myself on guitar, there’ll be no hiding behind anyone else’s musical genius in performance. My intention is, in the naked simplicity of my being, to reach a new level of vulnerability. It is my desire to connect with each and everyone who wants to listen, naked to the bone and with no holds bar.

The Healing  Power of the Wider Perspective

Have you ever experienced how events that in the moment fill you up with anger and self-pity can turn into the greatest blessing when seen as a vital part of a chain of events that has lead to where you are today? Discovering how different experiences look from a wider perspective has blown my mind completely.

I just finished writing my first novel, which is based on some of the most dramatic events in my experience.  The process of writing, in itself, has forced me to evaluate my life, the good and the bad, in a whole new framework.  As a result, I have reached a deeper level of loving acceptance for myself and for each and everyone who has graced my path so far.

The songs that I have chosen for the new CD are powerful reflections of that level of understanding.

More to be revealed…
