Øksendal - Stay for Dinner
Electronic Press Kit (EPK)
Øksendal is a 100% original Alternative Rock band based in Kristiansand, Norway led by guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Dagfinn Øksendal. Øksendal is a fearless creative who makes music for himself, first and foremost, and whose main concerns are the art and the experience of doing it. He follows few rules, letting his instincts guide his process, and he presents his true self to his fans. The sound draws upon iconic influences like David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Roy Buchanan, and Jimi Hendrix but Dagfinn never imitates and has carved out his own personal artistic territory.
Øksendal and his familiars are excited about the upcoming release and feel they could attract a much larger audience to its efforts. Even so, this music is intended to be taken at face value so, when the artist-to-fan connection happens, everyone involved knows that it's real. Øksendal is an easy act to recommend to anyone looking for a unique and individual take on rock music that hasn't been heard before now. If that sounds like you, start listening today.
