 Ole Christian Paus

Ole Paus born in Oslo is a troubadour in the Swedish-Norwegian ballad tradition, an author, a poet, and an actor. He is widely considered one of Norway´s most popular singer-songwriters. He is the son of General Ole Otto Paus and a member of the Paus family. He is the father of composer Marcus Paus.

Ole Paus debuted as a singer-songwriter in 1970 and as an author the following year, after he was discovered by Alf Cranner and Alf Prøysen, respectively. He was one of the central figures of the so-called visebølgen i Norge, i.e. troubadours in the tradition of Evert Taube, Cornelis Vreeswijk and others.

23 years old he made his debut with the disc "Der ute - der inne". It has been said that the album set the standard for the Norwegian folk art in the 1970s. The album Garman (1972), which he recorded with several musicians from Pussycats is an early highlight of the Paus" production. He shows here a clear inspiration from Bob Dylan.

Since the 1970s, Ole Paus frequently collaborated with Ketil Bjørnstad, and they have released several albums together. In 1998 they published the book Journey to Gaul, or is typically Norwegian to be good. He later also worked extensively with Jonas Fjeld.
