Bio

My name is Leon Røsten and I’m a Norwegian jazz pianist, guitarist, songwriter and composer. My main work is leading, performing and composing for my bands Leon Røsten Odyssey, Sonic Cycles, Swallows Nest and Røsten as well as collaboration in other projects such as Mari Eriksen/Leon Røsten, Jera and Vejslev/Røsten. My main goal is to express and share the music from within and hopefully touch the listener whilst creating  an interesting experience.
