DE MOTIVERTE – The Motivated ones
«The Motivated ones» are musicians who like many genres, such as rock, country, jazz, funk, pop, blues, acid and heavy. When we play together, it is to bring forth Nicolay Leganger’s lyrics and melodies.
Especially the relentless critical and ironic songs, where he harasses himself, most others, and matters of the society.
Nicolay Legangers music sounds completely different on his albums compered to when we play it. You can check out at this video on Youtube and compare it to the same song on Spotify.

On the pctre you se us on a recording of «Gi meg mer» (Give me more), a dystopisk song about a man eating his future.
From left you see Jan Øystein Dyblie (el gitar), Stian Jacobsen (drums), Nicolay Leganger (gitar og vocals), Johan Bruland (bass) ad our guest-chorist Sunniva Steinsund Skeidsvoll.
Stian og Johan plays in several bands. Johan works with IT besides music, Stian does music production, Jan Øystein is a handy-man with a lot of competence, and Nicolay is talking to people as a coach og motivational speaker..
Fantastic band. Co-played and varied in expression. Get the audience with them and deliver the goods as expected. The guitarist plays with amazing empathy, drums and bass are tight, and Leganger is the showman who binds it all together. Must be experienced.
