Jarle Bernhoft Up for a Grammy

You may recognize Oslo-born musician Jarle Bernhoft’s name from Viking’s January issue in which we asked Norwegian notables about their favorite places to dine, shop and play in their home country. Check out his favorites, including Oslo's Rockefeller Music Hall, Credo restaurant and the Henie-Onstad Art Center, on page 23.

Last spring, Bernhoft released his third full-length studio album, “Islander,” to rave reviews. The album is nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award in the R&B category. It’s the first time a non-American artist has received a nod in the category’s 20-year history. Tune in to the Grammy Awards on February 8, 2015, to see if he wins!
