Offpiste Gurus Short Info

“Offpiste Gurus pull together the pop sensibilities of the indie world with the slow soulful lilt of the jazz ensemble” (Quote: American blog Nordic Spotlight)

To listen to our new album - go to the Soundcloud link.

Just like the off-piste skier, who seeks out the untouched snow of the cross country trails, Offpiste Gurus criss-cross through a variety of musical landscapes along roads less travelled as well as down well lit pistes.
In Offpiste Gurus’ music the singer-songwriters predilection for personal storytelling meets the unique blue toned cool which Scandinavian Jazz is so famous for.
Offpiste Gurus’ 2nd album In Case of Fire is produced by topnotch indie producer Nikolaj Nørlund.
The songs are set in tight, delicate arrangements, that cut to the core of each song, while leaving plenty of space for Trinelise Værings charismatic voice and Fredrik Lundins potent sound and multi faceted improvising.
On Offpiste Gurus’ 2nd album, released October 22nd on enja/yellowbird 2015, topnotch indie producer Nikolaj Nørlund has seen to it that the songs are set in tight, intricate arrangements, that cut to the very core of each song, while leaving plenty of space for Væring’s beautifully unvarnished voice and Lundin’s potent and multi faceted improvising.
Offpiste Gurus has made a point out of working with larger ensembles such as Big Bands and chamber orchestras.
Line up:
Trinelise Væring - vocal and banjo
Fredrik Lundin - saxophones, flutes, backing vocals and piano Thomas Vang - bass and bass rhodes
Jeppe Gram - drums, percussion and backing vocals
