Stories From the World of Jan Eggum

With the release Hjerteknuser, Jan Eggum confirms his status as one of Norway´s premier songwriters and makes it clear why he is one of our most recognized and beloved artists. The release received great receptions and the single "Frk. Hjerteknuser", a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg, climbed quickly to the top of the Norwegian charts. Hjerteknuser is a warm and honest album, typical of Eggum. With powerful lyrics, he takes us through a universe of different lives and destinies. He sings about solitude, love and the passage of time. In addition to his duet with Eidsvåg, Eggum has been joined by several talented artists, including fellow guitarists Lillebjørn Nilsen, Halvdan Sivertsen and Øystein Sunde, as well as Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Karin Park and Thomas Dybdahl.

Stories from the world of Jan Eggum.

A Sympathetic Glance

Eggum stops to dwell on key moments and key people in life. Chances are that Eggum is fond of all the people he describes in his songs, albeit to a variable degree. It is easy to understand his sympathy with those who have been excluded and left out. Equally strong is his compassion for the little man in the bar that no one sees, and who only seeks love ("Rør meg"), and his understanding that a small gray mouse choose to feel like a star ("Grå mus").

The World of Eggum

Jan Eggum also puts words – and names – to life’s invisible conductors. The passage of time is portrayed in "Tyven skal du hete", while "Tilfeldigvis" reminds us that most things in life are random – even love. The song is performed as a duet with Karin Park, and although the message may seem naive and simple, it is presented in a typically Eggum-way, with elegant twists and well-chosen words. And no other than Jan Eggum describes better the loss of another in such a heartfelt manner like he does in "Når du er langt herfra". Which brings us to an end, and to a song that is among the very best written by Eggum: "Når pappa kommer hjem" – every father´s bad conscience distilled into four minutes. A masterful story, set to music by the master himself.
