Midnight Choir


Midnight Choir

Midnight Choir was a Norwegian indie/alternative rock band active from 1992 to 2004. Its members were Al DeLoner (Atle Byström), Paal Flaata, and Ron Olsen. They played a kind of Americana music.

The band was named after the opening of Leonard Cohen's song "Bird on a Wire": "Like a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir."

Midnight Choir won the Norwegian award Spellemannprisen in 1998 for best rock album, Amsterdam Stranded.
