Knut Roppestad, singer- songwriter out of Horten, Norway, grew up in a small town environment in the sixties and seventies. He is active pursuing his career both as a performer and as a recording artist. His musical references spans from progressive metal to troubadour music – from the noisy electric to the solitary acoustic. He has always been a creative force and has been the main contributor of original music to different outfits.
He has very much been influenced by American music and describes his music as “a sort of Americana based on Norwegian roots – in the widest sense”. His American adventure started on a trip with a friend in 1980, and he was enriched with a second family in Muskogee, Oklahoma that’s still close to heart.
