Moddi @ A secret venue, Oxford
Saturday 11 October 2014, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Moddi is a Norwegian singer with a breathtakingly beautiful voice. Having racked up hundreds of thousands of listens on YouTube, Moddi will be playing at a special, intimate venue in Oxford.
Pål Moddi Knutsen comes from a small fishing village on the tip of the island Senja in Northern Norway. His first encounter with music was singing a sea shanty on the local radio station as a five-year-old. He played the piano for a while, tried trumpeteering in the school’s marching band and bass guitar in a rock band until he started rapping at fourteen. When he left home, fifteen years old, Moddi started writing his own songs.
He often writes in the middle of the night, without even seeing his own hands. The first songs came to life in the school dormitory’s showers, the only place he could hide away after everyone else had gone to sleep. At 18, he found his mother’s accordion standing unused and forgotten in the cellar at home. He brought it with him and fourteen days later, he held his first real concert.
The Oxford venue will be announced to ticket holders.
