After many years as a successful session bass player, Jan Holberg decided it was high time to start writing and producing his own music. The Jan Holberg Project was born.
Jan recruited top musicians he admired for collaboration, his dream team included Joe Lynn Turner (of Rainbow, Deep Purple and Malmsteen fame), Mezzoforte drummer Gulli Briem, and keyboardist Eyþór Gunnarsson, as well as guitarist Skjalg Mikaelsen Raaen.
Sense Of Time was released on March 28th, and the Jan Holberg Project are touring Norway live as this is written.
A quick google search found us a pleasant quote regarding the mix from this review: "After having listened to the album a first time, I was knocked down by the perfect sound, something that is absolutely necessary for this kind of soft rock albums". We couldn't agree more :-)
We are very happy to announce that Gísli Galdur has now joined our team of producers.
Gísli has a very serious track record despite his young age, has worked with many of Icelands most important artists and played hundreds of concerts and dj gigs around the globe.
Not only that, he is a genuinely nice guy, who is a real pleasure to work with, something we feel is terribly important.
Gísli is already involved in new Medialux projects, and we look forward to a long and prosperous collaboration.
What are you waiting for, go and check out his stuff!
It's not hard for anyone living in Iceland to understand where the inspiration for 'Let Them Bleed' came from.
Our super-overextended banking system, run and fuelled by the greed and debt of a handful of billionaires exploded, leaving the Icelandic state with enormous debts for future generations.
Immediately afterwards our government was overthrown following mass street protests. In other words, interesting times, as the Chinese curse would have it.
Here, as in the rest of the world, the greedy banksters that caused this global crash are all still rich, still walking free among us, while normal people are enslaved by their actions. And while the title of the song is not to be taken literally, people around the world are calling out for justice for those who gamble with their futures. The Banksters.
