Arthur Stulien’s participation in Norwegian Idol in 2016 and 2020 turned many heads, and the young Norwegian country artist started to make a name for himself. After playing at some of Norway’s biggest country festivals from 2016 to 2018, he went on to the production of the debut album containing 10 original songs. The album was released January 25th 2019, including the first two singles Anywhere Else and My Kinda Home, released in 2017.
Playing at a Roots festival in southern Norway
in 2019, a concert which has been mentioned as
one of the best ever played at the festival,
Arthur got in contact with Vidar Dale, who
would become the producer of the three songs
which is being released this spring.
Growing up within a family of musicians, he
quickly started playing the guitar. He got
locally known at the young age of 8, playing at
different concerts and talent shows in his
hometown Byremo, and other local parts of
southern Norway. He’s been writing songs since
the age of 13, and for the most part of it,
together with his cousin Simon Stulien. The
songwriting and singing style are inspired by
childhood heroes such as Waylon Jennings and
Alan Jackson, via Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley, to new roots in country music like Luke Combs. Arthur Stulien is Norway’s newest rising country artist, aiming for the stars.
