Guitarist and instrument collector Geir Sundstøl appeared on over 260 albums as a session player and sideman before he released his solo debut "Furulund” in 2015. After 27 years as a professional musician he finally took the big step, and was rewarded with glowing reviews and a Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannspris) nomination. Sundstøl is still very much in demand as a musical collaborator regardless of genre, for instance as a member of Nils Petter Molvær’s group.
Mojo described Sundstøl’s debut album as "a soothing series of languid guitar soundscapes that blend Cooderesque western warmth with a twilight Norwegian chill.” The British magazine HiFi+ highlighted "the great choice of sounds” and the Norwegian music writer Terje Mosnes referred to the "musicianship that doesn’t shout, but that wins the listener over through the subtle tonal diversity that gradually emerges, making each listen a new experience.”
A year later, Geir Sundstøl followed up his success with "Langen ro”, and on 12 October "Brødløs” will be released on the Hubro label, who describes the new album like this: "Ambient goes country and David Bowie and Brian Eno share a tune with John Coltrane in slide guitar maestro Geir Sundstøl’s astonishing cinematic travelogue.”
At Punkt, Sundstøl will perform material from all three albums.
