Omar Østli is a Norwegian singer/songwriter who has released two fine solo albums, 2007's Ingens mann (Nobody's man) and this year's 1750 Halden, which is the postal code of his hometown. Omar is also the guitar player of the fabulous bluegrass outfit Onkel Tuka and a journalist in Halden Arbeiderblad. "Ville veier" is a great country tune from his debut album that popped up on my iPod today when turned to random. I hadn't heard it in awhile, but it sounds as good as I remembered. Hope you like it too, although the ones among you who don't know much Norwegian may struggle a bit with the words.
