No one heard any of the songs until we were done with all of the recordings. We never even brought home a rough mix ourselves. This, I believe, gave the sessions great focus, and strongly consolidated the musical world we created in that room.

A decade ago, Cato Thomassen and Seasick Steve produced my debut album, "Rodeo", at Jukejoint Studio in Notodden. One late night in the studio, after a couple of hours in Steve's well equipped in-house bar, I gained the courage to play Cato some ideas I had for a different kind of record than the one we were making with the band at the time. Songs which were 20 seconds long, instrumentals, songs that consisted of just a chorus or a verse - but also acoustic and different takes on material we were already working on. Cato jumped on the idea, and then and there we decided (as one often does after a visit to a bar) to make that album together. However, we didn't talk of when, how or where.
