Like many other jazz bands, "Come Shine» started out playing American standards in their student years. Unlike most of their fellow students from that time, they still do. However, they do it their own way. That´s why Chick Corea stated about the groups pianist: «Erlend Skomsvoll is one of the best arrangers in the world». Come Shines unique ability to add new creative twists to anything from Broadway songs to Johnny Cash-hits has made this jazz quartet into a blockbuster, selling out venues from Oslos famous Opera House to countryside clubs. When the band got together again following a 6 year recess, Norway's prime jazz journalist Terje Mosses hailed Come Shine to be a "national treasure" and demanded that they stayed together. Erlend Skomsvoll (piano), Håkon Mjaset Johansen (drums), Sondre Meisfjord (bass) and Live Maria Roggen (vocal) represent a generation of well educated Norwegian musicians that became internationally renown performers at young age. However, the quartet «Come Shine», have been a well kept Norwegian secret. Until now. The release of the new album «Red and Gold» (2014) marks a new international approach for the group "Come Shine".
