Copenhagen-based Danish/Faroese/Icelandic bassist and composer.

I’m a bass player and composer playing modern jazz. I’ve been playing music since I lost my eye sight as a teenager. As a bandleader I’ve released several albums with Danish and international musicians such as Oskar Gudjonsson (IS), Rudi Mahall (DE), Kasper Tranberg (DK), Jerry Bergonzi (US), Ra-Kalam Bob Moses (US), Tony Malaby (US) and Bill McHenry (US).
