Product Description

CD Description

Pal Moddi Knutsen comes from the remote and blustery northern Norwegian island of Senja, in the bipolar land of the summer Midnight Sun and winters of total darkness only lit up by the Aurora Borealis. With a borrowed accordion and a sea blue guitar, he began captivating listeners with music that has been described as a blend of Damien Rice and Bjork. The talented and original young musicians live performances sometimes solo, sometimes with a band of string instruments, drums and piano spellbind his audience into a silent trance, as they are drawn into the almost magical atmosphere of his music. After super-producer Valgeir Sigursson who worked with Bjork, Kate Nash, Cocorosie, etc. heard Moddis music on a bedroom demo never intended for official ears, he invited Moddi to Iceland to record the debut album Florigraphy in 2009. When given previews of the upcoming album, Norwegian music journalists responded overwhelmingly enthusiastically, and, shortly after its release in early 2010, without ever having a radio hit, Moddis debut album shot into the top ranks of the sales charts in Norway. But that was just the beginning. After touring Norway up and down, captivating both audiences and the media, he was awarded the prestigious aha stipend earmarked to help Norwegian artists bring their music to an international audience. After the award was announced, jury foreman Magne Furuholmen of aha, said of Moddi He has a very strong stage presence and he makes me feel a little happier to be Norwegian. He writes interesting songs that he performs in a tender and credible way. At about this time, his music found its way to Angus and Julia Stone the acclaimed Australian double platinum selling brother & sister act who invited Moddi to be their support band for their mostly sold out European tour. At packed performances around Europe, Moddi was met with standing ovations, an unusual feat for a support band. Moving ahead, Moddi is preparing for the international release of Floriography in April 2011, and will be touring extensively with his band throughout Europe in conjunction with the release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imagine standing at a fjord at dusk 25 Sep 2011
By A. G.
Format:Audio CD
I like this CD. I discovered the artist on a festival and I was, after a short moment of hesitation, fixed by this truly special and powerful music. It really feels like you are standing at a huge and deep Norwegian fjord, it is foggy and the sun is coming up behind the clouds. And this even so you are standing in mud up to your ankles and the sun is burning on you head...
So I bought the CD after the festival and it gets only 4 stars because I guess for the singular fjord-feeling you need a super Dolby surround system and neighbours that truly like you no matter what. But it is great music and maybe u will give it 5 stars if you haven't heard this young guy with his blond curls and the amazing voice life in concert...

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the Cows Gather to Hear Moddi 25 Aug 2014

Exquisite pastoral music by a genuine talent! Though he sings in his native tongue; his music reaches far beyond words to call up a song in all of us that soothes and awakens the senses. High praise to this young artist for his rare talent. Buy this album.
