Magnet is Even Johansen

Magnet is Even Johansen, a Norwegian musician who makes his home in the city of Bergen, also home to international musicians Sondre Lerche and Annie. And not unlike Lerche, Johansen has a lushness to his sound. The music is lush and melodic, set apart by an ear for quirky sounds and instruments. Magnet is an indie package with a major label voice... and that's not always a bad thing.

Magnet's latest, The Tourniquet, will be released in North America February 14th 2006
