Jesper hails from Molde on the west coast of Norway – known in Norway as “The City of Roses”. He started playing the guitar and singing already in elementary school. However, Jesper also excelled in sports, and up until recently he represented Norway on the national gymnastics team – competing internationally across the world throughout his mid-teens. He is also a great skater, skier and snowboarder. Jesper plays both guitar and keyboard, as well as writes and produces music. The past year and a half he has been 100% dedicated to his music career, and has rapidly developed into one of Norway’s most exciting new up and coming artists.
Despite his young age, Jesper has already been around for some time, building up a solid fan base in Norway and around the world. He has already amassed more than 66.000 followers on Instagram and performed twice at the annual VG show in Oslo in front of crowds of 80.000.
When Jesper released his international debut single “High” in May, it rapidly became a smash hit in Norway, reaching #2 most played on Norwegian radio and #1 on important P3, staying four straight months on Spotify top 50 and spreading across the borders to territories as France, Germany, the Netherlands and the Philippines.
The “High” Young Bombs remix in September rocketed to #1 on Hype Machine, was backed by Chill Nation and important tastemaker media, and has streamed three million times in the US only so far.
When releasing “Lies” November 18th, Jesper will continue building his way and position on the international music scene.
