Norwegian Americana pioneer Harald Thune is one of Norway’s most critically acclaimed country music artists. He is also a well known and much loved radio voice with his seven broadcasts a week on 24/7 Country Music Station «P10 Country». Harald possesses a dark, spellbinding voice and some solid and personal songwriting skills. However, after more than 30 years as a performing and recording artist, five albums, a couple of singles, a compilation album and over 1600 concerts, Thune´s appeal goes far beyond the ranks of your average country music audience.
On stage he performs with passion and joy. However sad his songs sometimes might be, he reveals an impeccable sense of humour when small talking the crowd in between songs.
His new album «The Backbounceability of Humans» was released April 20th. Eleven original songs recorded in the reputable Athletic Studio in Halden, Norway under the expert management of in demand producer Kai Andersen. The outfit featured on the record is high end quality; Rita Eriksen (duet), Jørund Vålandsmyr(Norwegian Grammy Awards winner)and Eivind Staxrud (Raga Rockers) to name a few. Among Andersen’s many satisfied customers are Seigmenn, Madrugada and Big Bang.
