“Music is mostly a hobby for us. We all have close association with the Church of Norway. The reason for playing hymns is that we want to get the beautiful lyrics and melodies out to people in a slightly new way. There are many great hymns that the next generation other- wise may not get to hear.

We got our start as a quartet in 2009 at a concert at Iveland Church in the County of Aust-Agder. Our first CD was called Tidløs. The next CD was named Artic Tour and was a single we played on a tour of Northern Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands in 2013. Our Christmas CD En Tidløs Jul - Live fra Åseral came out in 2015. Our latest release is Ren og Rettferdig.
