Exactly one year ago the Norwegian audiences took notic

Exactly one year ago the Norwegian audiences took notice of a young tenor performing at a benefit on national television with his good friend Alexander Rybak. Didrik sang Torna A Surriento accompanied by Rybaks violin. That was the start of a magical year, which would take the young man form strength to strength. From being an unknown music student he is now a household name in Norway.

The story started 23 years ago in a small place outside Porsgrunn, a town a couple of hours drive from Oslo. Early on his parents noticed his eagerness to perform in front of any audience that would listen. As a teenager he joined a band at his local high school as a drummer and soon he changed place with the lead singer. His father saw Didrik’s potential and encouraged him to take classes at a local opera singer. Didrik refused to do anything but pop standards, but slowly his vocal coach introduced him to classic opera. This led him to The Barrat Due Institute of performing arts were he met many young and talented musicians. One day in a class he acquainted Alexander Rybak who let him in on a secret; he was joining the local selection of the Eurovision Song Contest with his song Fairytale. Didrik watched ringside when Alexander first conquered the Norwegian selection and later won Europe’s heart with his smashing performance. Didrik had already acquainted songwriters and wanted to join the local selection himself. A year after Alexander, at the same stage in his native Grenland he took himself to the Norwegian final and won the national selection with his song "My Heart Is Yours". Since then he has performed on every TV show in Norway, he sang in front of the Olympic performers and his majesty the king. He was invited to duet with Jose Carreras as well as the world famous soprano Solveig Kringlebotn. These days his biggest achievement is out in form of a cd called Guilty Pleasures. Didrik have created a bouquet of pop songs with some of our leading songwriters and producers. He is now thrilled with the result and is living his dream.
