Humming People


From the icy urban streets of Oslo, and the backwoods country of Toten emerges an honest, straight-shooting band with Americana influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Bob Dylan, but with a cultural awareness and musical voice uniquely their own.

They tell you stories about life as it is, it's beauty and ugliness, it's better and it's worse. Read more on Last.fm

They tell you stories about life as it is, it's beauty and ugliness, it's better and it's worse. "A hope no man can bind", their debut record, was released in June 2009 after touring 3 years, playing approximately 120 shows a year, in every hill and corner of Norway. They have also shared their honest, hopeful tunes abroad, mentioning the UK, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Israel, Ethiopia, Cambodia and the U.S. In 2010 and 2011, Humming People played nearly 200 concerts within the walls of Norwegian and Swedish prisons, as part of a cooperation with the Salvation Army. This cooperation lead to the recording of their second album "Live at Halden Prison".

Recorded within the high security walls of Halden Prison, in front of over 200 inmates, Humming People's second full length CD was released January 2011. Humming People is now back with their third album, "City of Lost Men". Producer Phil Madeira (Emmylou Harris, Civil Wars, Buddy Miller, Mindy Smith) was so excited about the result that he called some friends and suddenly Emmylou Harris, Holly Williams and Sam Bush (Alison Krauss, Taylor Swift) was part of the album. "City of Lost Men" was slated for release March 7th 2014. Humming People is: Joakim Hansen, John Hjeldsbakken, Christer Slaaen & Øyvind Bergsaune. Read more on Last.fm.
