Artist Profile

Name: Inge Berge
Label: Independent
Location: Boston MA

Biography:

Inge Berge, singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, has spent the last 15 years making music in various forms, from entertaining a solid cult-following accompanied by only his trademark Red Acoustic to touring as lead guitarist for large Broadway productions. A native of Norway, Berge has made the Boston area his home for over 20 years, and can frequently be seen in area clubs, on concert stages and other venues.

His 2007 release "The Zerosum" marked a musical departure for Berge, with its electronic aesthetic, richly textured production and thematic structuring.

Berge is currently working on a more mainstream indie-pop album, aimed at release in early 2010.

Inge Berge, singer/songwriter and self-described contrarian, knows how to write the quintessential pop song [...] - Northeast Performer Magazine

This is an odd, adventurous, and ultimately compelling amalgam of rock-opera posing, spoken word , backwards tracking, irresistible op-art hooks , swirly melodies, low-key compositional grandeur and goofball Brecht-and-Weill Cabaret-style one-offs - The Noise, Boston

A thoughtful, well-crafted commentary on the human condition in a post modern world. - Fan review, www.ingebergeworld.com
