|AKA Even Johansen originally from Bergen, Norway now lives up in Scotland. Even's had musical tendencies ever since he was little. His Father was part of a Norwegian swing/jazz dance troupe, and Even used to play on his four string guitar. He took his unusual name after an incident in his early teens and the name Magnet has stayed with him ever since. After being diagnosed as anemic (Iron deficiency) when he was 13 Even visited his father's rock'n'roll doctor whilst on holiday ("I think he may have been a drug dealer, but he was wearing a white lab coat"). Said doctor sent a young Johansen to a half Chinese, half Indian medicine man, who tattooed him with a Magnet in "Special" ink. After passing out from the pain, Even woke up to find that he was feeling better. "I was stupid enough to believe it, but believing can work wonders." |
Magnet made his UK Debut in June when he released the 'Where Happiness Lives EP' and continues to establish his own unique sound with his next single Chasing Dreams (mixed by Steve Osbourne) and released on the 7th of October through Ultimate Dilemma Records.
Using an array of personal influences Even creates highly emotive songs, rich with experience and realism, compacted into personal, electrifying records.
