His debut album 'Tell Men This', due out in 2008, melds the best of folk, blues, country, and (dare I say it) pop. One gets the feeling that its not going to be his final resting place, but for now, Yngve creates exceptional tunes which resonate of his blues background. The new album, produced by Eoin Bailey, was recorded in Sligo with his band the 'Space To Be Yourself Collective"; a concept which encourages an experimental approach, whereby musicians freely contribute to the creations. This endeavour has drawn together a talented motley crew of musicians, writers, artists and singers and on 'Tell Men This' the individual sparks light up this creative cauldron. Themes of childhood innocence, love, and loss of both are evident throughout the tracks. The faint aroma of melancholia lingers...and at times Yngve seems like a very young 'old soul'.
He can be quite introspective, and occasionally cynical, but despite the thread of loss running through the songs, we are left with essentially uplifting melodies which warm the soul. As he ponders 'Ambitious plans, with delicious ends, if everything should fall into place'. (Middle Child Syndrome)… there can be no doubt that the 'everything' he is thinking about will indeed fall into its rightful place. Read more on Last.fm.
