Going back to his soul- and funk-inspired pop roots, with a great band playing top class music.
Ole Børud was already well known as an artist before his participation in the Norwegian television show “Stjernekamp” (“The Ultimate Entertainer”) in 2018. The show saw him performing in a wide variety of genres, from folk song to opera to EDM, and although he ended up in third place in the contest he became a household name throughout the country.
He is now going back to his soul- and funk-inspired pop roots, and it is in this format you will be able to hear him in Kongsberg Jazz 2019, with a great band playing top class music.
“It is great to have Oslo Børud back in Kongsberg. He’s widely respected by other musicians and it was fantastic that he was “discovered” by a wider audience through Stjernekamp. We’ve been listening to his latest album and it sounds terrific. And his band is just phenomenal!” (Kai Gustavsen, festival director)
