Being is the new album from Norwegian pianist and composer Eyolf Dale. A musician of exceptional beauty and poise, his music is rich in colour and mood. Being, his first album in the piano trio format, builds on the extraordinary success of his three previous Edition albums with more than 6 million streams on Spotify alone. Praised for his lyricism and exploratory improvisational style, Eyolf follows the likes of countrymen Tord Gustavsen and Bugge Wesseltoft in developing global audiences and media recognition for Norwegian music.

Being is emotive and highly personal. The music is serene, beautiful and profound, blending a subtle groove with intense lyricism. Rooted in Jazz, he employs a classical approach yet has never studied classical. If Chopin was a Jazz pianist he would sound like Eyolf Dale. His phrasing is nuanced, his touch is precise and his music is deeply emotive
