A collaboration between Norwegian singing star Trond Teigen and English songwriter & musician Helen Walker, DISTANT SHORES is a truly International & eclectic venture.... The instrumental parts of the album were recorded by Helen Walker at Wilderswood Studio in the UK, whilst vocal recordings took place at Ambience Studios, Oslo. All exchanges of recordings, scores, lyrics, artwork and technical information took place via internet broadband connections. Helen said 'We found this a great way to work and not at all the remote experience you might imagine.' 'Because this is an independent production we had the freedom to work this way and to create an album that will hopefully appeal to many - crossing genres from classical to pop via electronica and world music.' The songs are brought to life by the amazing vocal talents of singer & actor Trond Teigen. Trond is well known in Norway for countless starring roles in musical theatre and for his numerous television, radio & concert appearances. He's voiced feature films for Disney, Fox, Amblin, Goldcrest, Pixar, Jim Henson and Dreamworks and played a regular part in the popular Norwegian sitcom series 'Holms'
