Oslo based pianist and composer Eyolf Dale has successfully carved a path as one of the most important emerging Norwegian artists to develop an international profile in recent years.
Praised for his lyricism and exploratory improvisational style, Eyolf follows the likes of countrymen Tord Gustavsen and Bugge Wesseltoft in developing global audiences and media recognition for Norwegian music.
His work with fellow Norwegian tuba player Daniel Herskedal (‘Slow Eastbound Train’, Edition Records 2015) garnered him much attention from the international press for his lyrical, introspective style and roaming imagination. This prompted Dale to release his own album as a leader, ‘Wolf Valley’: a highly personal album featuring a who’s who of Norwegian musicianship, also released on Edition Records in 2016. Since then he has continued to work with Daniel Herskedal and in the duo with reedsman André Roligheten, and recorded 2018s Return To Mind.Artist’s Website
