Morten Maehre


Songwriter looking to connect with musicians, producers and potential collaborators. I'm especially looking for session singers who would like to collaborate on releasing indie/folk/alt.rock on Spotify.






What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is everything, everything is music.

What is your music dream?

I want to share as many songs as possible with the world, and maybe someone somewhere can feel what I feel, see what I see and think what I think.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would remove poverty and religion.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Probably something with The Smurfs.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

John Prine. He's my guiding star.

What inspires you to make music?

Everything. Anything.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Even in times of deep despair, there's hope. Never surrender to the darkness inside!

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Like I'm going to soil myself, so I never do.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

You've got to respect real musicians! Today, most popular songs are programmed by producers/engineers, and they sound lifeless and generic.

What do you think of Drooble?

No idea yet. Let's wait and see, shall we! ;)

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That I can't really play, compared to "everyone" else.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Life usually gets in the way. Too much on my plate.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

You've got to be unique, yet have a certain amount of commercial appeal. That means you need to perform material which sounds familiar, yet fresh.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I don't know... Who have you heard of? ;) Tom Russell, Katy Moffatt, 10,000 Maniacs, Natalie Merchant, Billy Bragg, Dar Williams, Shawn Colvin, Steve Goodman, Guy Clark, Kasey Chambers, Kathryn Williams, Mary Gauthier, Maria McKee, The Rainmakers...
