Guitarist and vocalist Nils Solberg has 40 years’ experience in the music business to his credit. Besides being a busy musician in his own right, he has recorded and performed with such artists as Ralph McTell, Nigel Kennedy, Clare Teal, Fapy Lafertin, Gary Potter and Bryan Ferry.
His own style could best be described as a mixture of gipsy swing and The Great American Songbook, though always leaning towards an intimate acoustic style… imagine Django Reinhardt meets Fats Waller and The Nat Cole Trio and you’re almost there.
He has appeared in venues as diverse as The Kremlin and The Royal Albert Hall, and from The Bellville Velodrome down in Cape Town to Jazz Under The Northern Lights up in Lapland.
Nils is based in the South-East of the United Kingdom and currently occupies the guitar chair with the ebullient Adrian Cox Quartet, whilst keeping busy with cruises, weddings, private and corporate functions, both as a soloist and in varied line-ups.
