Bjorn Riis Lullabies In A Car Crash on LP
2014 Solo Debut from Airbag Lead Guitarist/Main Songwriter
Airbag lead guitarist and main songwriter Bjørn Riis released his debut solo album, Lullabies in a Car Crash in 2014. The album is very much a personal statement, with lyrics dealing with fear of abandonment, alienation and loss. It's also an homage to many of Bjørn's musical influences. The album features six songs with a coherent and thematical composition. Bjørn's soulful guitar playing and low-key vocals creates a rich listening experience. As a singer this is the first time he takes the lead, normally doing the backing vocals in Airbag. Lullabies in a Car Crash features Airbag's Henrik Fossum on drums and Asle Tostrup providing loops and effects. Long-time Airbag collaborator Vegard Sleipnes co-produced the album together with Bjørn.
