Artist Biography

Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Vitne grew up a child of the beach, a lover of the sea.  A dreamer.
First introduced to music as a child by violin, at a young age he discovered a natural affection for the flute, which he still plays to this day.  Over the years he developed a deep appreciation for American glam (or “hair”) metal as well as Japanese rock, influences that can certainly be heard and seen in his own work.
With Norway came love, and with love came renewed ambition.  He fronted the Norwegian hair-metal band SEKS in 2010-2012, receiving recognition from such renowned publications as AOR Magazine and SleazeRoxx.  But it came time to make a decision.
2013 marked a shift for Vitne with the release of his first solo effort, the 4-song “Not Far From Shallow Water” EP which featured two music videos directed by Vitne himself.  Growing up during the high time of MTV, he feels strongly about the importance and impact of music videos.  The first single, “Destroyer”, recently won “Best Music Video” for August 2013 by the Akademia Awards.
December 3rd, 2013, Vitne will release his debut solo album entitled “Neon”, a reflection of his greatest musical influences.
