Tip The Scales

Tip The Scales is a contemporary progressive band with music written by the Norwegian musician and composer André Drage. Creating a sonic landscape which takes the listener into a dreamlike state, on a journey of complex rhythms and haunting melodies, he draws inspiration from the works of Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Frank Zappa and King Crimson, to name a few. The music is performed by musicians with strong identities, educated in both jazz and classical music, resulting in a unique sound by an original lineup.
