BIO

SVER play grand Norwegian folk music with relentless energy and seductive spark taking you on a fantastic musical journey guaranteed to excite you. Ranging from the very dreamy to a swinging, pounding and sweaty madness – you are invited to the party, greeted by a welcoming primal force that pulls you into the dance.

In April 2015 the long anticipated sequel to “Fruen” was released. With the new album “Fryd” SVER aims for new heights with freshly composed fiddle hits, mixed with old tunes in new form.

Norwegian-Swedish SVER has since 2008 put on countless performances at festivals and clubs all over Europe. The last four years SVER has collaborated with the Swedish dance-hall artist Snakka San, and created the new genre Folkhall, playing in Scandinavia and have had multiple songs on the radio charts in Norway and Sweden.

SVER consists of Olav Luksengård Mjelva (fiddle and hardangerfiddle), Anders Hall (fiddle and viola), Leif Ingvar Ranøien (diatonic accordion), Adam Johansson (guitar) and Jens Linell (Drums and percussion). Olav and Leif Ingvar have played together since 2002. Vidar Berge joined the group in 2007 on guitar and together they released the self titled album “SVER”. In the spring of 2008 Anders and Jens completed the band, and they released “Fruen” in 2010. Vidar quit the band later that year and Adam joined the group. Since 2011 SVER has collaborated with the Swedish dance-hall artist Snakka San. You can check that out here.

SVER is:
Olav Luksengård Mjelva, fiddle and hardangerfiddle
Anders Hall, fiddle and viola
Leif Ingvar Ranøien, diatonic accordion
Adam Johansson, guitar
Jens Linell, drums and percussion
