    Mr. Big
It all started with a Christmas present from his older brother in 2013 - a gift card for a recording session at Lydriket studios in his home town of Bergen, Norway.
The song was sent to Geir Luedy in Made Management, which immediately caught his ears. The ball started rolling for the young artist simply known as dePresno.

Although the name dePresno is from Spain, Bjarte dePresno Borthen is only 7% Spanish. When he turned four, he got his first guitar as a birthday present, and inspired by his father’s record collection containing Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Bob Marley, the young dePresno took the guitar to heart.

Despite his young age, DePresno’s music reflects on the big questions of life, love and people's place in society – down to the most trivial. As such, he stays within the same lyrical traditions as Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon and Tim Buckley to mention a few.

dePresno became one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists in Bergen after releasing his first single "Forever" in May of 2015. Since then, dePresno has released several radio charting singles like “Hide and Seek”, "See You Soon" and lastly “Mr. Big”. The latter was named “Song of the Week” on Norway’s national tastemaker radio station NRK P3 and A-listed on NRK P1.

The track "Hide and Seek" gave dePresno his proper breakthrough in 2016. The track was one of the most played on NRK P3 during the following six months from its release.
