D'Sound is a Norwegian pop band based in Oslo, Norway.

Band History

Ofstad and Sjo met while both attending Berklee College Of Music. D`Sound was formed back in 1993 in Oslo with Vocalist Simone Larsen at a coincident rehearsal-meeting. Their debut album, ”Spice of Life”, was released in 1997, following the successful Single "Real Name", and was nominated for two ”Spellemannpriser”, the Norwegian equivalent to the Brits and the Grammys. D'Sound's blend of Jazzpop with funky elements was well received and they also gained recognition as a live-act. The next album ”Beauty is a Blessing” was released in 1998 and won the Spellemannpris for ”Best Norwegian Pop Group”. It received platinum, even though the album was never released internationally. Musical influence shifted more to drum’n’bass and modern soul. The second Single "Down on the Street” also entered the UK club charts. After extended successful touring, the band took a break.

In 2000 D'Sound resumed working together on the next album in Johnny Sjos home-studio. After a long period of writing material, "Talkin Talk" was recorded. D'Sound, for the first time, also produced the album, along with their long-time keyboardist Stein Austrud. Quoted mayor influences include modern USA R&B-artists Angie Stone, d’Angelo, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu. "Talkin' Talk" was mixed in Virginia Beach, USA, by Serban Ghenea, whose credits include work for Janet Jackson and Prince. For the subsequent tour D`Sound joined with numerous national and international musicians toured Norway with the songs from the new album On the tour great international musicians like DJ Kemit from US hip hop group Arrested Development.
