Since the group’s inception, Norwegian/Swedish folkrock band, SVER, has gone from strength to strength, playing extensively throughout Europe and the US, gaining a reputation as one of the most acclaimed live acts in the Nordic folk scene. SVER has released four albums: “Reverie” (2018), the long-awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed albums ”Fryd” (2015), “Fruen” (2010), and “SVER” (2007).

“SVER has an enviable reputation for being one of the best live bands on the circuit.” – Fiona Talkington, Songlines

“SVER mixes music from the depths of heritage with the freedoms of innovation. You’re unlikely to resist, so why try, just go with it.” – Tim Carroll, Folkwords

SVER has often been described as “sounding electric without electricity”, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia's leading singers in different genres. That has lead to them playing on TV-shows, at large festivals, as well as securing positions on radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into the lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musicality.

Their newest album, Reverie, is recorded in Hallibakken Lydstudio, Norway, mixed/mastered by Mikael Lyander and Erik Ronström at Hedgehog Music, Sweden. The album will be released November 30th on Folkhall Records!

“Among the other visiting acts, Norwegian/Swedish instrumental five-piece SVER caused perhaps the biggest buzz, matching exquisite virtuosity with exuberant playfulness and terrific rhythmic drive...” - Sue Wilson, The Scotsman more >>>
Born and raised in Savannah, GA, Austin Quattlebaum's sound is tinged with southern low country marsh land blues. After living in the mountains of southern Appalachia for several years his sound became steeped in traditional bluegrass and old time music . After 8 years of wilderness river guiding and living in a van as a touring musician, it’s grown it into a sound all it's own. Though he may be a resident of Portland, OR now, his childhood home shines through in the swampy tones and sleepy Southern lilt of his banjo and melodies (and in his titling, as well—it doesn’t get much more Savannah than The Ghost Tangled in the Oaks, the name of his 2013 LP). His solo performances blend gritty originals and tasteful covers; weaving 3 finger banjo, clawhammer and flat-picking guitar songs into his sets seamlessly. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his sultry tunes are sure to get the crowd’s attention. more >>>
