In Offpiste Gurus’ music the singer-songwriters predilection for personal storytelling meets the unique blue toned cool which Scandinavian Jazz is so famous for. It is grooving, hand played and primarily acoustic music, played by an unorthodox line-up of voice, saxophone, bass, drums, mens choir and banjo with glimpses of brass, vibraphone og piano. It is sophisticated, it’s rough, it’s full of contrasts, and above all a perfect offset for Værings beautifully unvarnished voice, which generously shares stories and observations from the adult life arena.
Saxophonist and composer Fredrik Lundin is one of the major Scandinavian jazz and beyond-profiles of his generation. Trinelise Væring is a highly respected singer and songwriter.
