A solo-project with an all-star team of guests

After four years of planning, writing and composing, the debut album ONE is near its long awaited release. 

STiAN PiAN is working from his base in Norway, with collaburators from just about every corner of the world. The unique constellation of musicians on each song, combined with equaly unique soundsettings, helps creating a feeling of a "best of" more than a regular debut album. 

AOR combined with radiofriendly ballads, and classic hard rock with obvious influences from the revival from 1990-2000.

We are currently working on a documentary about the Stian Pian project. Due to Covid 19, the recording and final mix of the first songs has been delayed a bit, but we’re just about there!
While we’re waiting, working on this documentary is quite fun. A local tv-producer is behind it, but it will be made available for everyone interested. Interviews with several guest stars, Stians history, and loads of music!

-Stay tuned for updates...
