This is the story about TSID and where I am going from here.
The project was first started in 2015, but due to other band projects, there was less time to focus on this. The song “Please Stay” was released as digital single in 2015 as the start of the project, and was very well received among listeners worldwide. Then the project was put on hold. Now, 2 years later I am finally ready.

singer and songwriter who looks at myself as a positive guy without mental problems. However, it is certain that you’ll see there are some dark sides in here, when you study the lyrics. I see other people’s situation and write songs about it. Music is about expressing a point of view.
The story of The Stranger In Disguise is like so many other songwriters. When I was about 5 years old, I started writing own material. I have been touring Norway for the past 10 years with Norwegian Pop songs. The genre was said to be happy folk pop / pop rock – something I became quite tired of. When I passed 40 I decided to write music I could stand for, not trying to write something others hopefully would like. I want people to listen to my music because of the music, not who I am…
