Was born in1964 in Kongsberg in Norway. his life with a handicap and growing shorter than average and with a artificial leg was a bit complicated and troubled, especially in his teens and in his early 20's.
He got his first guitar when he was twelve starting out writing songs with 3 cords.
Mick Jagger once said that rock 'n roll is 3 cords and energy. In 1993 Olé made his first trip to the US and Canada, he crossed the Atlantic chasing his dream.

Now Olé Ask has recorded his new single ABBEY in Abbey Road Studio 2
The song ABBEY was written for the occasion and the song is a tribute to Abbey Road Studios and all the great music coming out from there.
Featuring musicians such as Jeff Wassermann, The Empire State Band, all this happened because of Kjell Tørre a Norwegian Beatles expert who granted Olé Ask studio time at the Abbey Road Studios
