    1Take Back Yesterday [2003]


    Christian Ingebrigtsen was born in 1977 and grew up in Siggerud outside Oslo, Norway. His father, Stein Ingebrigtsen, was one of Norway's most successful artists during the 70's, and sold more than one million records in Scandinavia and Europe. Naturally, Christian grew up with a huge interest in music - already as young boy, on tour with his father, he decided he wanted to become a popstar!

    He started playing the violin, later the piano and guitar, and chose to study music and drama in high school. He studied in Kentucky, USA for one year. There he impressed the local community so much with his cultural involvement, that he was given the highest honour awarded by the state: the title "Kentucky Colonel" by the governor in 1995 - a title Christian shares with such distinguished leaders as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Sir Winston Churchill, and entertainers such as Bing Crosby and Red Skelton!

    After high school, in 1997, Christian was accepted among very few Norwegians, to study at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. The school is also known as the Paul McCartney fame-school. In his first year of studying song writing and production, a teacher at LIPA recommended Christian to manager Tim Byrne, who was looking for talents to work with. Christian met Tim and within a few moments Byrne was convinced that Christian was the right man for his next project. Together with three other talented young men, Ben Adams, Mark Read and Paul Marazzi they developed and formed the band a1.

    The result of five years with "a1", from 1997-2002, has so far been two UK number ones, a Brit Award for "best newcomer" in 2001, and a total of ten UK top ten singles selling more than 2 million records worldwide! Throughout his short, but already impressive career, Christian has worked with great writers and producers such as Eric Foster White (Madonna, Maria Carey, Britney Spears), Chris Porter (George Michael), Mark Taylor and Brian Rowling (Cher, Enrique Iglesias), Peter Cunnah, (D eam), and Steve Mac (Westlife). In Norway Christian has recently been working with famous producers like Espen Lind (Maria Arredondo) and Jørn l (Lene Marlin, Stray). Christian is also writing music for other artists, like Maria Arredondo and Laila Samuelsen (Tuesdays).

    Christian has now taken a break from a1 to work on a solo project. His first solo album is to be released in autumn 2003.
