Jazz or rock? Stonerswing? Or doomjazz maybe? For every new record by Hedvig Mollestad Trio critics try to invent an adequate genre name for their spellbinding, uncompromising and visceral music. The music magazine Classic Rock came closest: Jazz Sabbath. The band’s eclectic mix of influences ranges from Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix to John Coltrane and contemporary jazz and metal music. This has proved to be a recipe for success: Hedvig Mollestad Trio has a steady growing international fan base. 

Founded in 2009 after Mollestad was awarded “the young jazz talent of the year” by Molde jazzfest, the trio was signed by Rune Grammofon in the following year. After four studio albums and a live double LP they will release a new studio record by the end of 2018.
