Joakim Tinderholt trio


Joakim Tinderholt & his band was formed in 2005 by members of the legendary blues club Muddy Waters' house band, as well as Tinderholt himself. The band has two albums to their name; their debut album "You Gotta Do More", from 2014, was rewarded with nominations for Spelleman and American Blues Blast Music Awards.

The follow-up "Hold On", from 2017, earned another Spelleman nomination and a six from Bluesnews' reviewer. Since signing with German label Rhythm Bomb Records, the band has established itself as a strong name on the European Blues and Rock n' Roll scene, with appearances at Screamin' Festival (Spain), Rhythm Riot (England) and Moulin Blues (Holland) among many highlights. The band represented Norway in the European Blues Challenge, at Hell, in 2018. In 2019, Joakim Tinderholt & his band released the single "Love Is A 4 Letter Word" and completed an extended European tour. Joakim Tinderholt was also on stage in London, during "Norwegian Blues Adventure", in November 2019. 

With their latest release, "Deadlines", the band challenges the genre expression with classic soul at one end and a more rock expression at the other. At the same time, they deliver classic Rhythm & Blues that oozes energy and fun, with Tinderholt's powerful vocals in the leading role! 

The band consists of: 
Joakim Tinderholt - vocals/guitar 
Bill Troiani - bass/vocals 
Svein Åge Lillehamre - drums
