Bio

Magnet equals one Even Johansen of Bergen, Norway, an alluring young troubadour whose gift has made him the premiere endeavor of Filter US Recordings. His music simultaneously follows in the footsteps of traditional folkdom and modern surrealism, treading a neat path between the two. Johansen draws upon a vast array of influences, from the dusty warmth of Gram Parsons to the ethereal electronica of Air, tenderly etching out the mark that is his own unique sound. NME has likened Magnet to artists Tim Buckley and Coldplay, and others have placed him in the ranks of such names as Johnny Cash, Elliott Smith, Beck and the Doves. Indeed, these comparisons have not been made in vain.
