 Eivind Opsvik is a Norwegian musician who’s been living in New York since 1998. His main instrument is the upright bass, but he also spends time playing lap steel guitar, old keyboards and drums, composing music, recording, mixing and producing (he has a studio in the basement) and running a record label; Loyal Label.

His main projects are Overseas, Opsvik & Jennings and his solo project.

"Throughout the date, Opsvik's bold writing deftly juxtaposes nostalgia and modernity, yielding a truly unclassifiable hybrid. One of today's most compelling musical statements, Overseas IV is a fully realized effort whose equitable blend of folksy melody, neo-classical harmonic sophistication, and avant-garde improvisation transcends the limitations of genre." Troy Collins, Allaboutjazz

"I haven't yet heard Overseas I through III, but catching the series here at IV is quite a pleasure. Eivind Opsvik, with his instrumentally eclectic group, creates a world of unfolding soundscapes that run the gamut from precious to powerful. It's an excellent collection of music that packs a lot of surprises." Paul Acquaro, Free jazzblog
