Who is Lars-Erik Dahle?

Williams-Friestedt at Parkteatret, Oslo

The very short version: The bald one in the middle. You’d be amazed at how many times that description actually works.

The reasonably short version: I’m a music producer, bass player and occasional singer living in Fredrikstad, Norway. Engaged to be married, three children. Tech nerd and recreational video gamer. As far as music goes, I’ve done some house band work on Norwegian TV, produced a handful of albums, played and sung on a few more, and released an album of my own.

My main gig as a bass player since 2002 is with Norwegian westcoast talent Ole Børud’s band,  and over the years I’ve been fortunate to tour with Toto singer Joseph Williams and Hawaii-based singer-songwriter Michael Ruff, as well as Norwegian singers Reidun Sæther and Hanne Sørvaag.

You can see and hear my playing at my Youtube channel, if you’re into that sort of thing. Also, if you can read Norwegian, my personal blog is at larserikdahle.com.

And I like to write, which obviously helps when you’re writing a book.

    Aloha from Kauai Lars! Longtime singer songwriter Allan Thomas here. Wondering if you might be interested in a CD or download of my new and 6th album ‘Two Sides To Every Story’? Michael Ruff (my longtime friend and side-man on my last 5 albums) plays on 9 of the 15 tracks, plus Jimmy Johnson on all tracks.

    Enjoying your site…

    Here’s the Bandcamp link till I hear from you. All the best and thanks for keeping the flame burning!…AT


    PS: pardon the public post but I did not see an email for you.
