Sensational 18-year old Norwegian guitarist/songwriter Magnus Berg has been leading his own band since age 16. Having toured all over Norway from top to bottom, from the West to the East, he began to perform on the same coveted Norwegian festival lineups as established international touring artists coming through his homeland. During those appearances, Berg made an impression not just with his inspired guitar work, but also by overcoming his teenage shyness and making an effort to meet, and develop lasting relationships with, artists he admired, such as Mike Zito, Bryan Lee, and Damon Fowler.
As Berg began to catch the eye of many in the American blues community, he knew just how to use his family’s yearly winter trips to Florida; he took to the road (with Dad at the wheel for the time being), going out to jams nightly and often being invited to sit in with the American artists who saw him play in Norway. On one of these occasions, Berg was spotted by singer/songwriter Kirsten Thien. Thien took an interest in Berg’s album project already underway, releasing Cut Me Loose on her own Screen Door Records and making sure that the worthy debut gets the international attention it well-deserves.
