Back in 2005, Norwegian musician Jarle Bernhoft was known for a hard rock sound: His band at the time, SPAN, was sort of like Norway's Foo Fighters. But Bernhoft, who plays multiple instruments, in addition to singing and composing, had a nagging feeling he wanted to make a totally different kind of music.
"This friend of mine gave me a Sly & the Family Stone album, and I couldn't really come down off that wall; I was nailed to it," Bernhoft says. "So it was a profound need to try and do something in that vein."
Since then, Bernhoft has been living that ambition. He recently stopped by NPR's studios in Washington, D.C. — with an armload of music gear — to speak with Weekend Edition Sunday host Rachel Martin and perform a few songs from his new solo album, Ceramic City Chronicles.
