With a steadfast following, particularly renowned in Germany and Japan, the Helge Lien Trio brings to their global concerts finely crafted melodies that effortlessly blend impressive virtuosity with approachable charm. Their performances balance introspective lyricism and lively expressionism, captivating audiences wherever they go.

Helge Lien, the driving force behind the trio, has honed a distinct and unmistakable style of trio playing. With a natural instinct, he and his bandmates have sculpted their interpretation of chamber jazz, characterized by its rich and harmonically complex tones. Drawing inspiration from the lyrical prowess of Bill Evans and the evocatively melancholic soundscapes of Esbjörn Svensson, Lien engages in a constant musical dialogue with Johannes Eick on bass and Knut Aalefjær on drums, crafting unique and evocative atmospheres in both recorded albums and live performances.

Undoubtedly, pianist Helge Lien stands out as one of Scandinavia’s most exciting young talents, known for his mastery of modal piano artistry. The trio has garnered a devoted following with their blend of classic impressionistic motifs and rhythmically intricate jazz compositions, showcasing an endless wellspring of creativity.
