Jorn Lande, was born in the heart of Norway in 1968. His interest in music started at an early age, inspired by his father - who also is a musician - and the rock music of the 70's. After many years of development as a singer and songwriter, tours with different bands and appearances as special guest on various albums, his first official recording was with Vagabond in 1993.
During the past decade he has delivered more than twenty albums with different bands and projects and worked with great artists like Ronni Le Tekro (TNT), Yngwie Malmsteen, Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden (WHITESNAKE), Joe Lynn Turner, Ark, Don Airey (OZZY, RAINBOW and DEEP PURPLE), Uli Jon Roth (SCORPIONS), Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X) and most recently in the Avantasia and Ayreon Rock Operas. His most popular effort was his role as front-man in German metal act MASTERPLAN, which brought him a great exposure all over the world.
Jorn also established himself with his own band and "Lonely Are The Brave" is Jorn’s 5th solo album of original material, recorded under the steady direction of Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pretty Maids, TNT) at Jailhouse Studios in Denmark. The JORN band consists of Willy Bendiksen on drums, Tore Moren and Jørn Viggo Lofstad on guitars, Sid Ringsby on bass. With this line-up you are guaranteed to get your adrenaline going, with a riveting sound that has solid roots in classic hard rock/heavy metal music, such as Dio, Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Whitesnake.
Once again, get ready for another unique and classic hard rock masterpiece from this productive and gifted Norwegian Viking. Jorn is one of our greatest Rock Giants: his strong and diverse voice and solid songwriting skills have become powerful trademarks in the Hard Rock world.
Jorn is currently making plans to tour Europe in the summer with additional shows to be added in the rest of the world.
