oldseed is all about the art of the build. if you let him, bjerring will suck you right into his world; delicate, explosive, often times quite raw but definitely on point. finely honed without ever sounding slick.
over the last ten years or so, oldseed has become an anti-hero for the truly indie-minded folk in the music world. eschewing all the „ego-trappings“ of the industry (publicists, record labels etc.) c. bjerring (oldseed) set out to incorporate the philosophy of the 80’s d.i.y. movement (sst, discord) and go back even further musically to the bardic tradition (woody guthrie et al). he has developed a strong body of work and a huge network of fans and friends worldwide.
bjerring grabbed his acoustic guitar and started writing and recording within the confines of what his resources would allow. he started with burning cd’s of his first two records and hand stamping the covers. and he started to gig and gig and gig. to date, oldseed has played about 1200 shows. he’s played everywhere from kitchens to concert halls. 28 countries and counting.
oldseed has since released 7 albums in total (plus a live cd and a split 7″). all records have been pressed on vinyl on bjerring’s dime.
oldseed has shared the stage with howe gelb, shearwater, the weakerthans, lambchop, scott kelly (neurosis), john baizley (baroness), mike watt and andy kerr (nomeansno) to name a few.
