A demo with a selfwritten song was recorded on a whim, got airplay at a local radiostation, got picked up by a local musician, and the rest is history. Nils has played solo, in a couple of duo's, a trio, and was for a brief periode the leadsinger in the norvegian rock'n'roll band "Danny and the young ones"
These days Nils focuses more on his songwriting, but still does 40-50 gigs a year, mostly for the fun of it
