is a US based Norwegian artist that has been working freelance since 2008. Before that he co-founded and worked at the design studio Yokoland together with Aslak Gurholt Rønsen.
Magnus Moriarty is the main project of Magnus Nielsen. He debuted in 2001 with the album Drive fast slow right left. He spends half his year at a cemetery in Oslo, where he’s digging holes and plants flowers. During the winter he spends his time in the studio where he lives out the myth of the decadent artist through which he planting seeds for new music. The combination of down to earth, hard, honest work and musical exploits that include absinth, violin and 12-string guitars make their mark on the music. His lyrics are inspired by beat-literature and they are accompanied by melodies that brings to mind both the past, the present and the future. The Middle Ages, The Space age and the Nuclear age are all represented in Magnus Moriarty universe. Beautiful folk-like melodies commute between the close and the intergalactic, and although the sun may shine upon the cemetery, darkness is lurking six feet down.
