I am having a truly fantastic week at Håvard Lund´s remarkable island retreat outside of Bodø, Norway. Time to think, space to create. Peace and quiet just to be. Inspired by the natural surroundings of Fleinvær, I have recorded some solo double bass improvisations during my stay - combining them with my own photos from the island to make small videos. One of them is embedded here, check out this Vimeo album for more: https://vimeo.com/album/4801857

Recording with my trio. Just finished recording our first album in Urban Sound studios in Oslo, with sound engineer Roar Nilsen. Very happy about the result. Release 2018 - stay tuned for more info!

Jon Eberson Group anno 2017 låter ikke som den Jon Eberson Group man kjente til på 80-tallet - både låtene og lydbildet skiller seg radikalt fra det legendariske jazzrock-soundet som gjerne forbindes med gamle hits som for eksempel «Jive Talking».

Nominated for a Norwegian Grammy 2016 / Nominert til Spellemannpris 2016 !

The making of my first solo double bass record in progress! July 22nd - 24th 2016, Ytre Rendal kirke with sound engineer Daniel Mikael Wold.

I have started my own trio, Sigurd Hole trio, with Jarle Vespestad - drums and Håkon Aase - violin. It´s a great pleasure to write music for and to play with this small, open chamber music group!

This review of Eple Trios "Universal Cycle" just came in from swedish magazine LIRA. Excerpt in english: "Hole changes neatly between arco and pizzicato playing. At times so beautiful it is almost painful - as in the bass solo on Tipplers Insomnia (arco), where the notes changes into overtones in a way that nearly resembles a human voice cracking up. It´s fragile, vulnerable and brilliant."

So happy to be the winner of Forsberg and Aulies grant 2014! The grant is 100 000 kr, and will be used for focusing amongst other things on my own solo recording in 2015. An honour to accept this grant as the first jazz musician ever, following last years winner Vilde Frang and earlier winners such as Håvard Gimse and Wolfgang Plagge.
