Bio:

My name is Leon Røsten, I’m a Norwegian jazz pianist and composer. My main work is composing and performing with Leon Røsten Odyssey, which emerged in 2015. Since then, I have developed this project into a range of various collaborations together with interesting musicians and friends. Leon Røsten Odyssey will take you on a journey with engaging melodies, sonic vibrations and groovy madness. The music is made through a shared love for creating musical atmospheres packed with sounds and emotions inspired by anything ranging from jazz, classical and contemporary music. Leon Røsten Odyssey is collectively developing ideas with an emphasis on interaction and improvisation, wishing to convey music that will give cinematic associations to the audience. I am aiming for an original expression with the potential of being enjoyed by all music lovers out there. On this page you will find information regarding upcoming gigs, compositions, recording, music releases etc.
