Recorded in FinlandStudio over the course of three days, our new album "While You Were Gone" is the result of our work together with award-winning producer Lars Skjærbæk.
A special vibe echoes throughout these tunes - this really is an album in the true meaning of the word. A mixture of soft ballads, swampy blues and twangy guitar bits, garnished with electric and upright bass, drums, percussion and even harmonium, this is by far our most diverse effort to date. Yet it all fits together and creates a mood that inspired the album title: "While You Were Gone".
This album offers a new and more mature sound that's still unmistakably Vestbo Trio. We think this is our best work yet and we are proud to present this music to you!
The sessions were filmed by Jens Friis and the resulting 14-minute documentary can be seen at the top of this page. Jens does fantastic work so do check it out! To see the movie in HD, go here: www.youtube.com/watch
