Sivert Høyem

Former lead singer of the now defunct Norwegian rock band Madrugada, Sivert Høyem, has enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist with the albums ‘Ladies and Gentlemen of the Opposition’ (2004), ‘Exiles’ (2006), ‘Moonlanding’ (2009) and his latest effort ‘Long Slow Distance’ (2011) . His unique voice has similarities with both Iggy Pop and Nick Cave as well as with the Doors’ Jim Morrison, and his musical neighbors are in this tradition: Melancholic, but melodic rock. Høyem has toured extensively in Europe and is now also focussing on the North American market.
