Since the group’s inception, Norwegian/Swedish folkrock band, SVER, has gone from strength to strength, playing extensively throughout Europe and the US, gaining a reputation as one of the most acclaimed live acts in the Nordic folk scene. SVER has released four albums: “Reverie” (2018), the long-awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed albums ”Fryd” (2015), “Fruen” (2010), and “SVER” (2007).

“SVER has an enviable reputation for being one of the best live bands on the circuit.” – Fiona Talkington, Songlines

“SVER mixes music from the depths of heritage with the freedoms of innovation. You’re unlikely to resist, so why try, just go with it.” – Tim Carroll, Folkwords

SVER has often been described as “sounding electric without electricity”, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia's leading singers in different genres. That has lead to them playing on TV-shows, at large festivals, as well as securing positions on radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into the lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musicality.

Their newest album, Reverie, is recorded in Hallibakken Lydstudio, Norway, mixed/mastered by Mikael Lyander and Erik Ronström at Hedgehog Music, Sweden. The album is released November 30th on Folkhall Records!

“Among the other visiting acts, Norwegian/Swedish instrumental five-piece SVER caused perhaps the biggest buzz, matching exquisite virtuosity with exuberant playfulness and terrific rhythmic drive...” — Sue Wilson, The Scotsman

Quattlebaum, Southern Gent and Banjo Slinger, brings more to the table than just music. With his infectious smile and weird antics, he brings people together; encouraging comradery and building community. It's undeniable that he loves the music and he’s a hell of a banjo picker to boot. Quattlebaum’s playing style is rooted in traditional southern bluegrass, but his stage presence and improvisational nature have morphed it into something all his own.
His childhood home of Savannah, GA shines through in the swampy tones and sleepy Southern lilt of the banjo in his 2013 LP, The Ghost Tangled in the Oaks. This year, he’ll be heading out on a national tour in support of his upcoming Sophomore EP Release, scheduled for fall 2018. With an arsenal of instruments at his back, he weaves banjo, guitar and hilarious storytelling into his sets seamlessly. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his tunes capture audience’s attention everywhere he goes.
After years of rambling around the country performing and guiding whitewater trips, Quattlebaum’s adventures landed him in Portland, OR nearly 4 years ago. He quickly dove into the local music scene and founded the up and coming bluegrass-ish band, Crow and the Canyon. C.&.t.C. hit the Portland scene with a bang, achieving many accolades, notoriety, and festival plays in their short history. They’ve recently been selected as a 2018 ensemble for the American Music Abroad Program (put on by the U.S. State Department) where they will be traveling across Africa teaching groups, hosting workshops, entertaining foreign dignitaries and collaborating with African bands along the way.

In addition to Crow and the Canyon, Quattlebaum can also be seen with the 8 headed folk monster band from San Francisco, The Sam Chase and the Untraditional. Raising a ruckus at festivals like Outside Lands, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and High Sierra. Quattlebaum has shared stages with everyone from Railroad Earth to Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and all his friends in between. Whether taking the stage with one of his projects or all on his own, Quattlebaum isn't shy and always brings a good time.
