He has been a member of both Shining and Jaga Jazzist and is since long a member of Solveig Slettahjell's Slow Motion Orchestra. He formed In The Country with fellow music students Roger Arntzen and Pål Hausken at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo in 2003. Since then they have been selected best young jazz artists in Norway, played concerts in Europe and USA and released their debut album This Was The Pace Of My Heartbeat (Rune Grammofon 2005) to much critical acclaim.

Losing Stones, Collecting Bones is 11 Qvenild originals recorded in the legendary Atlantis Studio in Stockholm, home of the first classic Abba recordings. Avant-garde guitarist and downtown NYC icon Marc Ribot is participating on this record. Also the Swedish singer Stefan Sundstrom has joined forces with this unusual piano trio....
