SongVault Artist Profile
Sor Trondelag, Norway
Alternative Folk / New Acoustic
Hogweed is the brainchild of Einar, who started writing songs alongside his brother back in 2007. They took the name from one of the tracks on the album “Nursery Crime” by Genesis.
After some trail and error and a few lineup changes they did conjure up a distinct sound that helps you navigate through the musical landscape with a soft summer breeze to guide your way.
So sit down, let your mind rest for awhile.
Hogweed consists of the following cats:
Hanne: Vocals, guitar
Lars Ivar: Guitars
Einar: Bass, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, percussion
