Second Soothing (Remastered)

Kjetil Landsgard

Remastered release of Kjetil Landsgard's "Second Soothing" album. A little more volume and less dynamics than his original release.

With a voice carrying the grit of 70's rock, Kjetil Landsgard's message is reminiscent of a 60's folk singer: let love be your guide. Whether he is collaborating with others or solo, he is no stranger to creating inspirational, original music. Kjetil can also be regarded as a 'wearer of all hats'; he plays/programs every instrument from his mobile home studio, located in northern Alberta. Like the siren on the rock, Kjetil Landsgard beckons the listener closer; with the exception that his intentions are only good. Which is made clear in his 2016 album, aptly named "Second Soothing". Throughout the album, Kjetil--who is normally a quiet man--wails in battle cry fashion, as if to say "Wake now, because time is short." Every song comes from a carefully crafted, insular world; where Kjetil is the archetypal mentor. In "The Ball You're Gonna Roll", he soothes his audience with the line “Build your city on days you feel like gold”. "Bayview", we are reminded that life is a journey; enjoy the ride, free from judgement based on past experiences. "Arrows" tells us that from an outside perspective, it can look like we're not progressing, as life has the tendency to repeat. Kjetil Landsgard is an artist dedicated to creating great music, that you can sit back and soak into…

Song for Bayview

Kjetil Landsgard

I wrote a song inspired by the local custom motorcycle shop "Bayview Motorcycles" in Parksville, B.C.

Milestones, marriages, markers... all fade away. Put yourself in the moment. Enjoy the ride for your soul's sake.

Second Soothing

Kjetil Landsgard

A self-help book set to 70's inspired Hard Rock. Fully embraced dynamics, with songs climaxing at the end, in classic pop chord progression.

During the two years it took to write the album, I became very interested in a motivational speaker by the name of Ester 'Abraham' Hicks. I learned that my thoughts create my life--that I am powered by an emotional guidance system--I am in control of how I feel. A common image I had throughout my album, was myself standing in a stream of stardust. The stream was packed with endless amounts of information. Information that I was not needing to understand, but simply feel the density of. Judgement was not my first reaction, instead I leaned towards acceptance.

I started writing songs when I was thirteen-years-old. I eventually performed/ made recordings/albums with bands, still searching and moving toward the voice I was trying to find in the lyrics.

My early writings were often described as 'vague' and 'not relatable', which left me searching for a more universal sound. During the writing and recording of my 2014 album ('First Event'), I quit rhyming and started saying what I really I wanted to say. I wanted my lyrics to help me disassociate myself from beliefs; paradigms and whatever concept of identity I had sold myself during my formative years. I am now more interested than ever in following my inspiration and impulse. I want to be led by an unconditional good feeling.

I have become a product of our times—I am fully engrossed in the world of computers and recording gear. While still leaning towards a 'band sound', by going solo, I can take any direction I want without managing outward expectations.

At this point in my life, I would like to see where my songs will go. I have crafted an insular world of creation, where I have the kind of control I have longed for. It is a relationship with myself that is loving; all accepting and all consuming. I want to ride this for a while, until I am pulled in another direction.

Stay inspired,

Kjetil.

First Event

Kjetil Landsgard

Contemplative, introspective, dynamic rock with a voice that whispers and screams for all the existentialism that one fore-brain can handle...

I just wanted to write and record and play instruments following my heart's desires, no preconceived ideas about what I thought it should be. Just making music for my own listening.
