New Release Premiere: Jarle Skavhellen – Pilots

Today, we’re delighted to bring you the premiere of Jarle Skavhellen’s new single, Pilots – the title-track from his upcoming EP, released February 23rd

Talking about the track, the Norwegian singer-songwriter states, “‘Pilots’ is probably my most personal song I have released so far. It’s about ending a long friendship, while trying to preserve the good memories and not letting the past be tainted by the present”

Take a listen below…

Jarle Skavhellen is heavily influenced by the old-timey guitar stylings of American icons Chet Atkins and Dave Van Ronk despite having lived in Bergen his whole life. Growing up in the small, lush town with a family of artists and musicians, he got his start early when he was taught how to play at age eleven by iconic Norwegian guitarist, Mads Eriksen

His father’s love for vinyl of all genres and his uncle’s ever-expanding guitar collection enabled Jarle’s passion for music to grow. He played in numerous bands over the years from indie-rock to funk to even a Metallica cover band in high school before having the courage to start writing and performing his own songs three years ago

He now blends the warm vintage sounds of yesteryear with his own distinctive mumblings over lush acoustic guitars. After topping the Spotify Viral Hits Charts both globally & in the US for his first single The Ghost In Your Smile back in December 2016, Jarle was found and signed to International label Nettwerk Records
