All come from the tight-knit community of Oslo musicians embracing experimental, free improvised music, as well as rock and alternative popular music, and they blend and combine elements of their collective musical fancy into their endeavours. In fact, Sacred Harp, started out as an improv-trio, without drums, but soon they realized that their strength lay in another direction. With Jessica´s expressive vocals and ability to create unique, strong melodies and lyrics, Juhani´s wide-ranging experience working in genres like noise, rock and folk music, and Øystein´s colorful pallet and versatility on keyboards, the trio found that in bringing together their strongest qualities they could construct powerful compositions and intricate arrangements. Sacred Harp found it’s fourth member in Andreas, the two-metre-tall anchor that creates a rhythmic foundation to their performances.

Hailing from Fredericksburg, VA, 21 year old Daniel Bachman utilizes a deft fingerpicking technique on old-time Americana-rooted steel string guitar & banjo, as well as transformative sitar-led ragas, with heady drones, psychedelic experimentation, and the occasional heartbreaking Civil War ballad added to the mix. In a review of FOTGC cassette, Chocolate Bobka, "In an age of scuzzy pop, blistering psych and assaulting noise, Sacred Harp plays just like it sounds.
Sacred. The sounds of the Gods tinkering with the planet, tilted on its axis, singing to the beat of a star so far away we call it a Sun, and even then, we still don't know anything about it. It's primitive and pure, the sort of wondrous alchemy that could only be harvested by the most righteous of farmers. It's wondrous." Bachman has been touring regularly since 2007, crossing the mid flat states and hitting both coasts, and has shared the stage with such artists as Jack Rose, Prince Rama, Amen Dunes, and Paul Metzger.
