Trond Braaten

Trond Braaten grew up in Norway, where his love for music developed at an early age.  He is in many ways a product of the 1960’s, being among the many that was taken away by the British groups that changed the music at that time. Taking up guitars, as well as other instruments for his own part, as well as engaging in the arts in general, was instrumental in what brought him into journalism during the 1980’s. His first NAMM show was in January 1986, where not so much the instruments, but rather meeting the names behind it all was the most rewarding, and educating experience for him. Among his career highlights, Trond served as technical support on several Michael Jackson albums including “Off The Wall,” “Thriller,” and “Bad.”
