Born in Stavanger, Norway, MYXE started out buying an old Yamaha Electone organ he found in a newspaper ad at the age of 13. He got hold of his first music producing software at the age of 18 and started producing his own tunes. That’s also where he produced his first hitsingle ‘Breaking all the rules’ released on Starbox. This resulted in his first festival booking on Utopia where he’ll return as a headliner this year!

A lot of MYXE´s songs are created in an old school way, on real instruments.

– My favorite instrument today is definitely the piano. I still play a lot of guitar, but I find it easier to work on new melodies and projects using the piano. On top of that I also find it more fun to play with, I can sit with the piano for 2-3 hours just jamming on absolutely anything that pops in to my head. That being said, If there´s an after party and girls present, the guitar all of a sudden becomes my best friend. For some reason the majority of girls are still more into rocking tunes on a guitar than a Hans Zimmer piece on piano.
