CBN.com Hailing from the fjords of Scandinavia, Norwegian rock band Dreampilots released their North American debut album Comedown this fall. The highly-anticipated project was the first release through Red Hammer Records' new major distribution partnership with E1 Entertainment Distribution (formerly Koch Entertainment).
In April 2009, Dreampilots became the surprise “buzz band” at GMA Music Week in Nashville, where they stole the media's attention with their striking personal stories and the desperate plea for hope that can be found throughout their debut.
Originally started as a ministry project, frontman and former Word Records UK artist Oddi Nessa heeded God's call and set out across the Norwegian countryside with a guitar on his back, a Bible in his hand and a deep desire to share hope in a dim world with anyone who would listen. He was soon joined by bass player Gulleiv Wee, a founding member of the platinum selling pop band The September When, and production and keyboard maestro, Inge Engelsvold. The evolution of Dreampilots was complete with the addition of drummer Karl Oluf Wennerberg, who is also the drummer for the multi-platinum super-group a-ha.
Dreampilots' powerful stage presence and captivating lyrical imagery pull back the veil of social and spiritual awareness. The lyrics contained within Comedown are not afraid to back down against a world that is rapidly losing its soul.
“We recognize our responsibility as a band to do what we can for humanity while upon a world stage,” says Nessa. “But of equal importance is connecting with the human being who is standing in front of our stage who is jaded and confused, and has lost his ability to know truth. That person has lost their moral compass and ethical boundaries. The desperate part of that situation is that the 14-year-old kid in the audience is the person who will represent our future.”
