Today, December 7th, Valiant Sounds releases Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra’s very first single. Drawing inspiration from classic pop music, Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra make their debut with a sunny, sprightly and perky number entitled “Queen of The Doorway”. Steeped in harmonies and with a predominantly acoustic backing, the single is heavily influenced by things as far apart as West Coast Pop and acoustic folk music. This is the first in a string of planned releases on Valiant Sounds for Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra.

The single is produced by Paul Bernard and mastered by Nordenstam Mastering who previously has worked with great bands such as Ralph Myerz, Sirkus Eliassen and Datarock. Cover art is done by Ine Berge Lund.

Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra is the brainchild of Norwegian singer-songwriter Øyvind Berge. The orchestra consists of him and whoever happens to be around at any given time. Although his musical roots lie firmly in the traditional folk music of Norway, Berge shows with this project that he is an eclectic musician drawing inspiration from various genres like, for instance, Britpop, bluegrass and electronica. Bands and artists as diverse as The Beatles, a-ha, Elliott Smith, Bill Monroe and AIR are some of the influences claimed by Sir Øyvind Berge & His Imaginary Orchestra.

The single is a digital release only and is now available at:

Spotify, Itunes, Amazon, Platekompaniet, Wimp, Musicnodes, Deezer, Tradebit,, Bibzboom, 7digital, Tónlist, YouSeePlayTelenor Mobil, MTV3, Emusic,, etc. (It may take some time before it is available at all of the online stores – more links will be added)
