Karl-Henrik Gunderssen is a Norwegian singer and bassist. The man was raised close to a ferry port in the Oslo fiord, and membership in Lobster Combo was consequently a natural progression at the age of 17-åring. He has contributed on as well Into Ramadan with the Supreme Caddie as on Lobster's masterpiece from 1994, There.
Kalle's last release on Bajkal Records is For brød og brennevin (For Bread and Liquor). This is a collection of recordings based on the work of legendary Norwegian singer-songwriter Jens Gunderssen, which was a vox populi in the 1930s and 40s. The songs are draped in tasty soundscapes which conjures up connotations to Tom Waits as well as the releases of Kirkelig Kulturverksted or ECM. Jens Gunderssen was the brother of Kalle's grandfather.
