Thom Hell is a Norwegian singer/songwriter/musician/producer. He cites influences that include Paul McCartney, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Neil Young.
He made his commercial recording debut in 2003 with the Tremendous Sinner EP on Chewin' Pine Records. A second EP, While You're Waiting (2004), followed on the label prior to Hell's full-length album debut, I Love You (2004). Every Little Piece (2006), signaled a growing fan base. Hell's third album, God If I Saw Her Now (2008), reached the Top Five of the albums chart and earned him two Spellemannprisen awards (i.e., Best Male Artist, Best Pop Composer). Moreover, his single "My Heart Is Longing for a Soul" garnered a nomination for Best Music Video. With All Good Things (2010) he received a new Spellemann award for Best Male Artist. In 2012, he recorded his 5'th studio album, Suddenly Past, with Jason Falkner in LA. Together they played all the instruments on the album. His two next albums, SIX (2014) and Until This blows Over(2015) cultivated Hells love for the 70s progressive music. In 2017 Thom Hell released his 8'th album, Happy Rabbit. The norwegian press might have failed to recognize it as a masterpiece, but it was praised in the UK by Mojo(4/5), The Guardian(4/5), The Independent(4/5) and Uncut(7/10), to name a few. His records, growing more and more complex, might not gain him commercial success. But for those who listen, it won't get less interesting. - Jeremiah Johnson
