Hi there, my name is Leo and run a studio on the westside of Norway where I do music and video stuff for youtube. I also have a band called Frog Leap, where we do my metal covers live.
For my covers I play everything myself as well as record, mix, master, shoot and edit the music & videos.

  • So sorry to hear of your divorce. It's hard - especially when children are involved. Coming to terms with the fact that you are no longer able to see your children every day is the most difficult thing I've ever faced, and I'm sure you're feeling this pain as well. While it might seem there is no escape from this heartache, I can promise you it WILL get better. Chin up and

  • Even the best divorce can make you feel as though the other partner died. It's a death of sorts: an end. There is a mourning, but you endure and move on. The end of one thing is the beginning of another, a new chapter of your life. Keep doing what you love and stay safe.

  • You probably won't see this Leo but if you do. You have helped me through my divorce which has already lasted 3.5 years. I'm sorry you have to deal with it but I'm glad there is no drama. It's still hard but your energy and saavy have helped me through mine. Lean on your friends and remind them you need support. Good luck.

  • This is sad to hear. Me and my wife decided to change our relationship after nearly 25 years into a friendship. We share a big time of our life. Nothing can replace this. Good times. But we've grown apart in our daily lives caring about our kids, hunting for money ... stressed out too many times. Hope dies last. But all is cool. There's no anger. Just a bit sadness that finally we - this rock solid and cool couple institution - also got hit by long term relationship effects. Our great advantage is that we have always had an open relationship. Therefore, there is no jealousy if new (sex) partners come into our lives. No drama. But a bit frustration from my side because it would have had been so easy to fix the issues. But we were trapped into a routine and I was focused too much on my profession and myself. Good news is: After a long talk we decided still to live together with our kids as a family but not as a couple. And this works pretty good ... in Covid-19 times. I am running my business at home since February and have taken over a lot of things automatically like coaching my kids for home schooling. I get more insight in the daily life of my "ex-wife". I do now more parts of the daily housework because shit simply has to be done and it feels pretty balanced now. And we are totally relaxed with this. My "ex-wife" is not stressed out anymore and I see a big chance for me to transform myself to a next level of life. The message of Covid-19 is anyway: Things must not continue as they have been before. We both feel more freedom to do what we want to do without having a remorse. Now that the children are older my wife is on the road a lot. She enjoys this freedom. For 15 years she has been taking care of the family management. She deserves it. We both love each other in our special ways. She's my big love. Period! So I am enjoying the fact that we made a long run without ending up in arguments, accusations and hate. We are 52 and 54. We are not interested into another cycle of relationship again. What also came into our life at the right time before: Eckhart Tolle. His books have influenced our consciousness and our view of life. We've explained it to our sons (13 and 15) that we stay together as a family but their parents are not a classic couple anymore. They have taken it pretty well and they are happy that their live is not really changing. So we see it simply this way: It is how it is. We do what we have to do. We care about each other. We are still a good team. And I will support her plans to become financially independent ... what will be good for both of us. We'll see where that takes us. You only live once. And your music is a part of my therapy. ;-)

  • I don't comment often, but I do enjoy your music. I don't usually take interest in an artist's personal life as it feels a bit... stalker-ish? But I will peek. I'm sorry to hear about the divorce, but not having cancer is a definite positive! It's amazing to look at 'little Leo', and although you will see all the annoying traits you have gotten over, it's still really clear that you had talent and that you've only improved. I wish you all the best as a fan, and as a fellow survivor of mental health problems. Hang in there man. Keep being you, because from what I can see, that's an awesome guy to be!

  • Hey man, my X thought she could do better than me too... A year later she married a douchebag who lived in his mothers basement, 9 weeks into their marriage the cops kicked in his door and arrested him for dealing meth and distribution of child porn. This dumb bitch had the audacity to call me up apologizing and begging me to take her back! I told her to fuck off, and I lived happily ever after!

  • Ok. I am sorry to hear that dude. My wife and I recently fell out. She took my wedding ring, and the one my son gave me, and threw them in the yard. They were lost. It wasn't my wedding ring I cared for. It was the one my sone gave me. She did find it because my sone was very pissed at her and let her know he wasn't happy that she threw his ring away. He gave it back to me and I swear I'll never take it off again. I just hope and pray that I can some how fix what I have fucked up. It was my fault. I deserve everything headed my way. I fucked up. My fault. I don't know your faith, but if God is real, in my opinion, we ALL scared him and he left. But I hope you and your family work out even if you do not come back together. You can still be a family separate. Harder yes. But it's where I come from. I should of paid more attention at how I acted instead of living in the moment. Love peace and chicken grease dude! Still and always my favorite cover artist!

  • Love and affection goes just as it comes, although it might feel terrible, based on how this stuff works, it's more usual then it goes away at some time then to persist forever. Just cherish the good times you had and look forward with a positive mindset Leo, the more one is likely to do so, the more it is likely that it turns into fondness then despise and that's something everyone breaking up should keep in mind.
