Bjorn Riis - Norwegian Musician
In addition to playing and recording with Airbag, Bjørn is a highly respected guitarist within the guitar community on the Internet, where he has a huge fan base. His guitar page “Gilmourish.com” has become a centre for gear and music discussions online. With a wide range of inspirations from artists like Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, No-Man to Black Sabbath, and musical styles from chill, electronica, art-rock to heavy metal, Bjørn have mixed all this into his music and have created his own style in writing and presenting music. Although Bjørn as a guitarist have developed his own sound with a unique tone and his own technique over the years, the playing and tone are reminiscent of David Gilmour, Steven Rothery and Steven Wilson.
The album is very much a personal statement, with lyrics dealing with fear of abandonment, alienation and loss. It’s also homage to many of Bjørn’s musical influences.
