Carl Espen may rock a leather jacket and sport a few tattoos, but inside he’s a big softy. The bouncer-turned-carpenter-turned singer, who sang for Norway at Eurovision 2014, sat down with wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi ahead of the grand final to talk fishing, Denmark, and his upcoming album. Perhaps the greatest revelation is one of vulnerability. “[Silent Storm] is about first and foremost just finding your place in life, and to settle down with family and kids and all of that,” he says. “That is something I hold dearly and I haven’t achieved yet. It’s something that I miss and that I think a lot about.”
Carl, who finished eighth in the grand final and eighth with the Wiwi Jury, has a bright musical future ahead of him. We can’t wait for his new album—or for the day he settles down and starts producing those children. Good luck, Carl!
