ABOUT ØYSTEIN GRENI
Oystein Greni has piloted his band Bigbang through several #1 albums in Norway. As the main songwriter, singer and guitarist in this power trio, he has enjoyed both critical acclaim and sustained commercial success as one of Norways premiere live attractions.
The story behind Greni supporting Rodrigo y Gabriela started when a live gig by Bigbang for some odd reason, and unknown to the band, appeared on Mexican television. Rodrigo was tuned in to the show and he later tracked down Greni, saw Bigbang live in Oslo and offered him some acoustic support slots in Europe. This turned out so well that he´s now invited to join RyG for more tour dates in the US and Europe.
Many of Oystein´s tunes have reached no 1 on the charts, and have been used on major movies and TV commercials. Bigbang has toured extensively in Europe and Brazil, supported The Rolling Stones on two occasions, toured with Jack White´s project The Raconteurs, and played most major festivals in Scandinavia. Besides residing in Oslo, Oystein lives parttime in Echo Park LA where he records at the shack home-studio he has built there. This is his first major outing as a solo artist, and he will be backed up on stage by Jared Nelson Smith of Bend, Oregon. For more info, see www.oysteingreni.com
