Bass player Steinar Raknes will «lift the roof» in Kikkans Hall, when bringing a new record and a new band including Unni Wilhelmsen, to this years Moldejazz.

Last year, Steinar Raknes, released his third album, Chasing The Real Things, with the rock, blues and Americana-steaming project, Stillhouse. He both sing and play the double bass – and is also behind most of the repertoire. Raknes has a striking ability to write songs that immediately sticks and feels familiar and dear from the first listen-through. In addition to this, he also offers strong cover versions of songs by legends like Bob Dylan, Depeche Mode and Bruce Springsteen.

Stillhouse's usually a solo project, but Raknes comes to Molde with «The Stillhouse Band», including Unni Wilhelmsen on vocals and guitar, Even Helte Hermansen on guitar, Erlend Slettevoll on piano and Per Oddvar Johansen on drums.

We guarantee a great atmosphere in Kikkans Hall, Wednesday 17 July.
