About Norwegian Underground: BIO (indiepop\rock)
NORWEGIAN UNDERGROUND (Ian Bel)

Norwegian Underground (Ian Bel) is the name behind the video Slave which has had more than 97,000 plays on YouTube.

The man behind the name grew up on a tiny farm not far from Oslo, Norway’s capital and claims to have begun making music “at the height of 100 cm”.

Ian was heavily influenced by a classical pianist mother and folk musician father and by the sounds of a distant relative – legendary Norwegian violinist and composer Ole Bull – echoing down the family bloodline.

Ian sang in a choir, excelled on the piano and guitar – and proved that violin virtuosity is not a genetic certainty – before forming a number of bands during the 90s. In 1997 he cut his first independent album, the gothic Mr Government. Six years later he founded UNO Record Company as a small indie label.

Ian has also composed theme music for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation nation and written a humorous children’s book Martha Martha. His many live performances include a 2008 charity concert for Africa inspired by the UN Millennium Development goals.

The latest Norwegian Underground (Ian Bel) production is Fake Factory, a concept album based on a self-penned book about the media industry…
