The Nils Økland Band is entirely acoustic, bringing in stylistic influences from many sources, with classical music and Norwegian folk music the most prominent. Økland says that the working method was inspired by the early baroque practice of using sketches as the basis for new music. One of his featured instruments here is the viola d’amore, a baroque era instrument that employs sympathetic drone strings along with the main strings, much like the Hardanger fiddle.

Nils Økland: viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle, violin
Rolf–Erik Nystrøm: saxophone
Sigbjørn Apeland: harmonium
Tore Jamne: percussion
Mats Eilertsen: double bass
