About Sigurd Hole

Sigurd Hole has been one of Norways most in demand musicians for the past decade. Being part of Tord Gustavsens trio/quartet, Karl Seglem acoustic quartet, Eple Trio and Jon Eberson Group, as well as a frequent collaborator with amongst others Terje Isungset, Trygve Seim, Bugge Wesseltoft, Helge Lien and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, he has toured extensively worldwide been a vital part of more than 35 album releases as bass player, composer and arranger.

I believe music can be found almost anywhere, in any sound, if we really listen. And this conscious act of listening might be one of the most vital human faculties to help us overcome the different challenges of today. It is my hope that the practice of listening consciously to music, with an open mind and keen ears, may inspire us to listen more carefully to all our surroundings: to each other, to nature, and to ourselves, says Sigurd in the liner notes of Elvesang. Inspired by a Rumi poem, Sigurd attests Maybe, if we listen deeply enough, we will hear the echo of a quiet, bright reedsong.

Elvesang is a quiet, introspective album where Hole's instrumental mastery always comes second to the music itself. An album of profound beauty.  John Kellman, All About Jazz (Elvesang, solo album)

Drawing heavily on Norwegian folk traditions, Indian and Middle Eastern modes they forge an authentic, improvisational dialect which is at once both ancient and new. Finely textured, vividly coloured and rooted in no specific place or time, Encounters is a truly epicurean aural banquet.  Fred Grand, Jazz Journal (UK) (Encounters, trio album)
