Magnus Berg

MagnusBerg bredde

Det er på scenen, foran sitt publikum, 21 år gamle Magnus Berg aller helst vil være. Her får han spilt ut sine følelser med gnistrende energi og formidlingsevne. Med sine tekniske ekstremferdigheter på gitar, sin røffe vokal og sitt tighte band, tar Magnus Berg deg med på en reise gjennom rockens historie med farger av pop, country og americana. Bergs talent har allerede i en årrekke bragt han til festivaler og klubbscener i Europa og til soulmusikkens og blusens hjemland, USA.
I 2014 kom albumet Cut Me Loose. Det fikk svært gode anmeldelser, gikk til topps på Roots Music Report (hvor de lå i 30 uker), ble kåret til «Årets album-nykommer» av bluesbladet Blues Blast Magazine og fikk heftig radiorotasjon i statene.

Siden gutten er relativt ukjent i vår region så lar vi noen som kan faget uttale seg.

Magnus is rockin’. Just kick ass” - Steven van Zandt (Little Steven)

Jeg kan bare komme på en håndfull som har tatt det videre, gitarister som Joe Bonamassa og Derek Trucks. Det ligger noe dypere musikalsk i bunnen hos dem, og hos Magnus - Mike Zito

Magnus er virtuous - Vidar Busk

En av de fire store - Øyvind Rønning, Dagbladet

The small pool of college-age performers worthy of the title blues includes Magnus Berg. Here’s an 18-year-old Norwegian whose seven original songs catch fire from the passion and the energy of his singing and guitar playing (sometimes slide). His close involvement with lyrics and music seems genuine, not posed - Frank John Hadley, DownBeat Magazine

On stage, in front of his audience. There's nowhere 21-year old Magnus Berg would rather be. He gets to play out his emotions with energy and a fantastic talent for performing. With his unbelievable technical guitar-playing skills, his rough voice and close-nit band, Magnus Berg takes you on a journey through rock history with shades of pop, country and americana. Berg's talent has already taken him to festivals and clubs in Europe, and to the home of soul and blues music, USA.

In 2014, the album Cut Me Loose was released. It received very good reviews, topped the Roots Music Report (where it remained for 30 weeks), was selected to be "The album-newcomer of the year" by Blues Blast Magazine and received a lot of radio time in the USA.
