Much in demand as both a studio and live vocalist, Norwegian-born Jørn Lande has become one of the most prolific and sough-after journeymen singers of his generation.
Getting his start in the late-80's, with local hard rock band Hydra, Lande later worked with T.N.T. guitarist Ronni Le Treko in metallic rockers Vagabond, issuing two albums during their short run from '94 to ‘95. A fortuitous hook-up with one-time Whitesnake guitarists Bernie Marsden and Mickey Moody followed, and as The Snakes, they toured and recorded behind both cover and original material during '97 and '98. Next on the agenda for Lande was a studio appearance on power metal band Mundanus Imperium's 1998 The Spectral Spheres Coronation album, and then a two-record stint with progressive metal group Ark, after which he finally issued his first solo album in 2000's Starfire. Since then, Lande has continued to hire out his services to any number of projects (Millenium, Beyond Twilight, Masterplan, Yngwie Malmsteen's touring band) while releasing additional solo efforts in 2001's Worldchanger, and 2004's Out to Every Nation. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
