Reidar Moursund   Norwegian version


Reidar Atle Moursund was born in the northern part of Norway in 1958. Ever since early childhood music has been a major interest to Moursund, and his first encounters with string instruments was when he started exploring the electric bass as a six year old.

Shortly thereafter he picked up the guitar, and the young Reidar began writing his own music and recording it onto tape.

One thing led to another, and his debut on vinyl was an interpretation of the Harold Arlen classic
Over The Rainbow, included on the Experience Records compilation “Nord Norsk Pop-Mix Vol. 1” in 1978.

Moursund now resides in the northern island community of Herøy, where he spends his days working as a headmaster at the local school and writing music from his small red house by the sea.

In terms of inspiration, he cites a broad spectre of musical influences ranging from Chet Atkins, Jimi Hendrix, Larry Carlton, James Taylor and Jeff Beck to Edward Grieg.
The 2007 release Wherever I Go is Reidar Moursunds fourth album, clearly demonstrating his musical diversity.
