Hailing from Bergen, Norway, TERJE EIDE (vocalist, guitarist, composer, recording artist & producer) first captured the public ear at age 16, as singer, guitarist and songwriter. His musical career began in earnest a year later, after winning a local talent contest. He later enjoyed a stint with the band Heaven & Hell, a rock institution in Bergen in the 80s. In 1986 he won the Norwegian National Rock Championship on national TV with the band The Heat. He started his own band a few years later.
TERJE has spent several years exploring various musical genres, as well as playing with local artists as a guitarist, singer and backup singer. This capacity landed him a variety of large-scale shows and concerts, backing acclaimed Norwegian artists.
TERJE went back to his rock roots in 2000 by starting a studio project that later on became ON THE RISE. A demo was made in early 2001 which immediately raised the interest of Frontiers Records who signed the project in June 2002. The Debut album "On the Rise" was released in 2003. Several rock magazines wrote that ON THE RISE created the rock ultimate debut album. A few years later, TERJE put together the songs on the long awaited follow up album entitled "Dream Zone".
TERJE will release his latest solo album in fall 2023. “It's been a natural process after making two albums of the studio project ON THE RISE. Dreams are meant to be fulfilled and I'm very much looking forward to embark on this journey together with colleagues and passionate fans of the music.”
