Biography:Rolf was born in Kristiansand, in southern Norway. His first brush with composing came at the early age of nine when he formed his first band. From then on, and throughout his youth, music came to be his constant companion and focus in life. He later studied music at the Music Conservatory in Kristiansand - and received his Masters degree in music at the Norwegian Institute of Music in Oslo.
By the time he'd unveiled his "Secret Garden" to the world, Rolf had already earned himself a Norwegian Grammy Award and the reputation as Norway's most successful popular songwriter with over 60 national chart hits. In addition, he was also a two time winner of the Eurovision Song Contest final 1985 and 1995, and a four-time winner of Norway's Eurovision Song Contest National finals. ("La der Swinge" - 1985 and "Nocturne" - 1995) and a four time winner of Norway's Eurovision Song Contest finals.
The founding of Secret Garden has given Rolf the freedom to explore (and for us to experience) deeper emotional dimension and wider musical landscape than the earlier phase of his career had allowed. It has also proven the "composer", Rolf Lovland, is a musical force of considerable stature.
