Ask British Alternative Rock band Anathema about Songwriter Petter Carlsen and they won’t stop praising him. „Apart from being a great friend, he is the most talented musician I have ever met in my life“, says Anathema guitarist Danny Cavanagh about the Norwegian musician. „Once I heard Petter Carlsen’s incredible voice and beautiful song writing I felt that he would be part of the inner circle of Anathema for a long time to come.“ That’s why the band didn’t just have him as a guest singer, but also invited Carlsen to tour with them. Ever since then he has been making a real name for himself even beyond his home country. His songs are gracefully arranged with strings, piano, trumpet and choirs and they have this typical Nordic sound: Contemplative and melancholy, but at the same time really beautiful.
