"...the prime instrument...."


Ole Evenrude (nov. 17th '62)

Entered the music business as an artist in '83. Made five albums until '89, all under the name Ole i'Dole. Moving to Stockholm Ole switched to songwriting and progressively started producing albums for other artists.

As mr. Evenrude got more involved with other artists' challenges in finding songs to record, or how to produce the next album, he worked ever more as a regular A&R. So much so, that Polygram Norway hired him in '93 as Head of A&R. During this period mr. Evenrude still honed his skills as a producer. Hitsville came to life caused by the necessity of having a private studio.

Hence, he ultimately left his safe Polygram spot in '98, now being a full-time record producer. Lured by new possibilities; In the turmoil following the Polygram and Universal unification, mr. Evenrude lead the A&R department at the new Universal until the new millennium broke. Broken was also his ventures in the corporate world; Now was the time to set up shop for real...

With Hitsville now being the prime instrument for mr. Evenrude's involvement in producing music, more time was spent on songwriting, negotiating deals and in other ways consolidating his by now firm grip on the music industry. He bought a former customs station from which he molded what is now Hitsville Production.

Ole Evenrude's long and diverse involvement in making, performing and producing music has lead to numerous contacts across the world. Making the path as he goes, he excels in connecting various people and talents in ways that time and again yields success. Progressively the Hitsville "brand" becomes a production unit where mr. Evenrude's associated staff produce music under the Hitsville umbrella. Ole Evenrude is now a household name in what we know as the music business.
