Hjalte Ross

A lot of current musicians focus on creating music by making unique sounds with effects or by cool gimmicks. Young Dane Hjalte Ross focuses only on the songwriting, and on making the songs unique in themselves.

The songs of Hjalte Ross are composed on acoustic guitar and tape recorders, but accompanied by great arrangements. Hjalte has been working on his debut album for nearly two years now and the process has found him working in London, writing string arrangements with composer Steve Turner (Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Beyonce, Jeff Lynne, etc.), later recorded by the incredible string quartet Who Killed Bambi (Father John Misty, Mick Harvey, TV2, etc) – and later in North Denmark, recording the album with his band and producer legend John Wood (Pink Floyd, Nico, John Cale, Cat Stevens, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Bert Jansch, etc.). The album was then mixed in Aberdeen by John Wood.
