Jørgen Sandvik received the award in the blues category during the distribution of the Spelleman Prizes for 2018 in Chateau Neuf on Saturday 30 March. JBN.S congratulations!

The singer and guitarist from Bergen, now residing on Stord, received the award for his release “Permanent Vacation”, which was his first solo album. It’s his first prize for a solo album, but he has previously received awards with the band Real Ones, which he was a member of for 20 years.

Bluesnews writer Johnny Andreassen wrote the following about the award-winning release:
– The songs are partly his own, but also some skinless cover songs from the blues artists who have meant the most for his blues story. John Mayall’s “The Law”, Skip James “The Devil Got My Woman” and Peter Green’s “The World Keeps On Turning”. The legendary “Midnight special”, which Creedence also did in his time, is created for Jorgen’s blues heritage with his Real Ones band experience. Mostly this is about Jørgen Sandvik, his guitar and his vision of having full respect for the old blues men and traditions and at the same time experimenting with their own sound, as Real Ones has always done. He uses flutes, cello and pump organs, which are probably unusual in blues. The result is a very vibrant, nude and distinctive singer / songwriter bluessound. It oozes a hungry country feeling like a “Motorpsycho goes blues”. It sounds like he has lived this life and sucked the blues travel companion all his life! An intimate and beautiful blues record to play this summer when the noise from the water park and barbecue parties has settled and the darkness in and the dew settles on the beer bottle. Really a little favorite here, coming in from an unexpected edge of the Real Ones camp in the west!

In the blues class, these three were also nominated: Geir Bertheussen Blues Express, JT Lauritsen & The Buckshot Hunters and Ulf Myrvold.
