Happy New Year!

Happy new year!!!

I know its been quiet for some time here. One thing Im gonna be better at in 2014 is to communicate with you here.

2013 turned out to be a year of creating, the year of new beginnings, and a year when exciting opportunities presented themselves.

I usually spend the last day of the year reflecting over- and looking back at the year that has passed. I encourage you to take some time and recall your highlights as well.Its easy to think that there hasn't been anything exciting happening, but I promise you - if you start focusing, looking back in your calendar, or at your pictures - you will see that the year has had some amazing moments to begrateful for.:)
Heres some of my highlights from 2013;
The year started out with a bang. I got to be a part of the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest (MGP) and perform live on national TV for all of Norway, with a song I had also written.
I am running my own record label, Electric Stardust.
2 of my songs, "Dominoes" and "Dinnertime" were featured in an american MTV movie.
I travelled to LA two times during the year, and got to work with amazing people, have exciting meetings, and see good friends again.
I went to NYC, and got to perform-for the 3rd time, at the legendary Gay Club "Splash", with butt naked hot guys on stage with me- just a month before they closed for good after 22 years.
I met a super inspiring 100 year old female drummer!
I went to Switzerland for the first time, and shot a travel program Channel 9, together with great friends.

I started DJing!
I got to drive my dream car, Tesla Roadster, and you will be able to see what it was like on the TV show "Garasjen" on Viasat 4, in January.
Went to a great writing camp in Trondheim, and got my first songwriting cut in Asia.

Iwent to an amazing wedding.
I got to celebrate my grand parents gold wedding. 50 years! So romantic, beautiful and inspiring!
I was lucky to play a gig at the amazing venue Debaser Slussen in Stockholm, where I always wanted to play.
I met one of my big inspirations, Marilyn Manson, and I also saw him live for the first time.
I started writing my first movie script.
I was honored to be part of the iCare campaign, to promote the amazing Nina Skarra designed scarves. When you buy a scarf, you also buy an eye operation for a blind person, so he or she will get his/her sight back.

I spenta lotof time in the studio, writing and creating new music. I made new friends, met inspiring people, got to work, play live and create with amazingly talented musicians, songwriters and producers from all over the world.

I wrote the best song I've written so far - you haven't heard it yet. But you will some time in 2014! ;)
2013 presented some exciting opportunities, and Im going back to LA this winter.
I have a felling that 2014 is gonna be an exciting year, and what I spent time creating in dark studios during 2013, will be brought out and into the light in 2014.
I am thankful I have good health, and that I can follow my dream. What I am most grateful for is you! All the amazing people I've got to meet along the way, my beautiful friends and family. My patient and always supporting fans. All of you out there who have faith in me. I love you all, and wish you the best! I cant wait to see you in 2014!
May 2014 be the best year of your life so far! ;)
