Frøy Aagre and her band Offbeat´s album "Countryside" has received world-wide acclaim from critics and musicians alike. The album was rated as one of the top ten albums in 2007 by the Norwegian newspaper Dagsavisen. After the release of “Countryside”, Offbeat has played at some of the biggest jazz festivals in Scandinavia and has appeared frequently at Norwegian television shows. The band plays melodic contemporary jazz, composed by Aagre. The music is characterized by intriguing melodies and melodic interplay, unexpected rhythmic ideas and rich harmonic textures. The element of surprise is always there in Aagres´ music and in Offbeat´s unique musical interaction. Offbeat consists of very talented musicians on the Norwegian jazz scene: Andreas Ulvo (piano), Audun Ellingsen (bass) and Freddy Wike (drums). The musicians are known from Norwegian bands like Shining, Sphinx and Mathias Eick Quartet.

"Frøy Aagre and Offbeat´s new album Countryside makes me feel like a better human being...Beatiful images come to me when I listen to Countryside as well as the nice feeling you get when you hear music that grabs you because it has something to tell".
Roald Helgheim, Dagsavisen
