The progressive rock / progressive folk rock band FAULK is a new band from Østfold, Norway.  Faulk  [fɔ:k] or («fawlk» in English), write their own songs with Norwegian lyrics. Faulk’s sound is a mix of rock and folk music, with a rough, tough, tender, near, energetic, emotional, clean, down to earth, fluid, special and unique expression. Faulk is working towards their first English album. It is going to be named 'Mann', which means 'Man' in English. The album will have punch and power, and a big dose of black humor, as the guys share their feelings about how it is to be a male in today's society. Faulk's new album (ENGLISH version) will be released via Friendly Folk Records in Fall/2019. 


Vocalist Per-Øivind Johannessen (Noors) writes all lyrics and guitarist Michael Krumins (Noors, Green Carnation) composes most of the music. Kristian Torp (Gazpacho) on bass og Lars Erik Asp (ex-Gazpacho) on drums play an important role. Faulk was on UrTur Spring/2016 tour in Østfold Norway. This was supported by Østfold County and host communes. Singles 'Her og Naa' and 'Hunden I Maset' were released January/2019 via Freindly Folk Records, followed by new single, 'BobbleheadMarch/2019.  Recorded at FMV studio in the Old Town of Fredrikstad, Norway with the well known Kyrre Fritzner as producer. Even though the lyrics are in NorwegiIt is a lovely feel good upbeat rock song that easily can find its way into your playlist.

Norwegian Bio;

FAULK spiller folk- og folkrock- musikk de har skrevet selv. Noe er rappet fra den norske folkemusikkarven. Alt er inspirert av levd liv, lidenskap og følelser. Faulk låner vinger fra Falken og kraft fra Faunen. Faulk er Faulk. Våren 2016 debuterte og turnerte de i Østfold med «UrTur 2016». Soundet er røft, tøft, vart, nært, stemningsfullt, energisk, følelsesladet, rent, luftig, jordnært, småmøkkete og moro. Vokalist Per-Øivind Johannessen skriver tekstene og musikken leveres av alle bandmedlemmene: Kristian O Torp, bass og Michal S Krumins, gitar. På trommer finner vi Lars Erik Asp, som foreløpig har status "innleid". Tekstene handler om levd liv og ekte følelser – ofte pakket inn i historier drapert med svart humor. Grunntonen er at vi bør leve her og nå, være gode mot hverandre, fullføre vårt potensial og spre kjærlighet. FAULK er kommet for å bli. Vi spenner på vingene, tar fram faune- kraften og tar av. Velkommen til å følge oss på reisen.
