ÅSN grew up in the tiny town of Spydeberg in east Norway, miles from Sunday open stores and cafés, actually any stores and cafés. The remote surroundings inspired him to pick up the guitar and start making his own music from an early age. But first when the 21 year old songwriter moved to Trondheim is where the story of the producer ÅSN starts. He finds himself in a pop landscape inspired by hitmakers such as Lemaitre and Astrid S. The self-released song "Scars" led to some interest from NRK Urørt for the project and he got picked up by Sailor Music and is now out with "Beating Me", written and performed by Celine Helgemo. "Beating Me" is a fresh electronic pop song with organic elements blended in gently, and lyrics that are straight in-your-face.
