Sivert Høyem, one of Greece’s most beloved artists, has been making us travel from the time of Madrugada till today, with the straightforwardness, the depth of his music and thought, his clarity of perception and the affection of his unique voice. His voice is also dreamy. melancholic, special and very recognizable and beloved among the Greek fans. Sivert Høyem is the man behind all these qualities, who continued his musical journey at the end of Madrugada, giving us still great songs.
Deriving from Stokmarknes, Norway, Høyem is obviously influenced by the Scandinavian ’90s black metal, kraut rock but French pop as well. His glorious days did not end with the loss of Madrugada. On the other hand, in a series of amazing solo albums, he became fully acclaimed among critics. The sold out performances given in Greece with Madrugada or as a solo artist or even can not easily be forgotten by the lucky ones who attended them.
He is back again for a short trip in Thessaloniki that he absolutely loves, but this time with a full band, which will comprise a unique series of concerts.”I never wanted to be a solo artist, says Sivert- for me music has always been a social thing, the only thing I always wanted was to be part of a band. Autumn 2012 I toured for the first time on my own, with my guitar (it was for a series of appearances in Greece) and Endless Love has matured, and I could tell it was strengthened by this experience. At the beginning of 2013 the band that accompanied me didn’t exist any more and I was starting from scratch.”
With the brand-new Endless Love, Høyem will welcome us with his typical nostalgic voice, giving us the intoxicating melodies in a show full of surprises. “Endless Love is not talking about romantic love. Most tracks describe the love of a man approaching 40, who has just gained his first child. All the streets that once seemed open, are no longer open. The “they lived happily ever after ” is the conclusion only in fairy tales, not in real life.”
Sivert Høyem will be performing on 27th of September at Principal Club Theater Thessaloniki with a setlist that includes all of your favorite songs Madrugada and also of his solo album! Do not miss him!
