“Every element of him is imaginative” says Music Connection Magazine about Toggo Ultrarock, whose unique mix of EDM and rock creates a niche all its own.
Born and raised in Norway, Toggo paid his musical dues in Los Angeles in a variety of rock bands, before turning the local Hollywood scene upside down with his band Scared Of Girls. Their outlandish P.R. Stunts and high energy concerts set a whole new standard for bands in Hollywood.
From the music press to their armada of fans, there seemed to be no doubt; Toggo’s band was going to be the next big thing. But fate had other plans. At the brink of a national breakthrough, Toggo went missing from the world – gone, without a trace.
8 months later he reappeared, and the bizarre experience he had undergone while missing caused him to lose just about everything he held dear – his band, house, car, money, bank accounts, and a name he had made for himself in Hollywood from years of hard work. The only thing left when the smoke cleared was a large case of incurable optimism. The book “Rock n Roll Virus, which chronicles Toggo’s surreal 8-month experience, is currently being penned.
As a result of his experience, Toggo resurfaced in Minnesota, where he traded in his Hollywood Rocker status with single dad status in suburbia, USA. He spent the next 8 years raising his son.
Now more determined than ever, Toggo revamped his sound, created a company from the ground up to fund himself, and threw himself head-first into creating new music. His unique voice caught Norwegian production company Deepfrost’s attention, and they immediately signed Toggo to a production deal.
Now, a year later, the result of that collaboration is “Ultrarock”, a 5-song EP featuring Toggo’s unique mix of poppy EDM and rock.
From his gotta-sing-along hooks and choruses to his hang-on-to-your- seat stage persona and colorful looks, Toggo Ultrarock delivers a refreshing punch to one’s musical senses that is rare to find today. And he is crystal clear about his goal: To leave the world irrecoverably inspired by his music and persona.
