I am just a guy from Norway who's always been interested in music. I have been playing for 20 year now and loved recording from home. I found a niche where I can work with YouTube and be my own boss and people seem to like it - so why not.

I started doing covers of pop songs in a more friendly way. One day, I decided to do Poker Face by Lady Gaga, put it out there and it got a million views.
