ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It´s about time -

Ove Støylen has a real love for the music that he plays: pure, clean country of the best kind.

On his new record "It's About time", Ove Støylen provides country music that is just as hard core as what you heard on "Dusty Boots". But he also opens up to a broader selection of country music than he did on the Alan Jackson inspired debut album. This time his band embarks on cajun flavoured songs like "Countrified", as well as bluegrass (Pork On The Run). The country dancers are serviced with songs like "Pickup Jasmine" and "A Little Bit of Happiness", already established concert favourites.

Humour and self irony is very obviously present in "From Duke to Alan", a song dedicated to the many jazz musicians who have turned to country. Add the personal touch of "The Hitch Hiker", and the ballad "Two Broken Cigarettes", and you have one of the most varied and many faceted country artists of 2005: Ove Støylen.

The record consists of 12 tracks, and Støylen has composed and written all songs himself. It was recorded at NRK Sørlandet Music Studio during December 2004 and January 2005. A star team of Norway's best musicians participated:

Stian Carstensen (from the group Farmer's Market) plays accordeon, banjo and mandolin, and thereby adds a contintental flavour to Ove Støylen's music. Øystein Fosshagen from Bergen is spicing up several songs with his lively fiddle playing. Knut Hem does the same thing playing his dobro.
Some of the most brilliant passages are provided by steel guitar virtuoso Dag Wolf, and G.T. Ugland adds a solid acoustic guitar.

Drummer Freddy Augdal provides the necessary punch to the songs, while Espen Skeie is organising everone and everything, being responsible for production and arrangements. Add to this Ove Støylen's powerful voice, and you have a winning team!
Ove Støylen's debut album, "Dusty Boots" (2003) received much acclaim from music critics and reviewers. Since then Ove has become an established name on the concert and festival circuit. He played many Scandinavian festivals during the summer of 2004. The first record still creates response and positive reactions from around the world, and one reviewer called it "the best european country album ever".

Ove Støylen comes from the small country village of Froland in Southern Norway.

Check out Steel Guitar by Dag Wolf!!
I bought this album to hear more of Norwegian Steel Guitar virtuoso, Dag Wolf. His playing is smooth as silk and provides emotional depth to the singer's production. Superb!! Thank you.

Ove is cousin of my father
Ove does a good job of writing some great songs-- his first album was great & we used it at some of the weddings which Ove is a cousin to. 2nd CD is great- keep up the good work and hope to see you in the States soon - maybe at the Hosfest--Ramona Chervestad - Bush.
