Andreas W.S. Prestmo - vocals/guitar - 2010+
Andreas joined Wobbler in 2009, after playing in the more or less obscure Norwegian bands Les Fleur du Mal, Lukas Kasha and The Chronicles of Father Robin from 1995-2008. At the time of Andreas' involvement Wobbler had recorded what would eventually become Wobbler’s third album, Rites At Dawn. But most of the vocal melodies, lyrics and conceptual ideas were still to be chiseled out. In search of inspiration Andreas retreated to a little cabin in Sogn & Fjordane. After a while he returned with the framework and recorded it with Lars. As the recordings proceeded things naturally fell into place and true songs started to appear from the instrumental material. These events was in many ways a kind of acid test, which solidified Andreas as a true part of Wobbler.
His very first musical endeavours begun when he started taking guitar lessons at the age of 10. After a couple of years of learning the basics on a classical guitar, he formed a band with the Momrak twins from Tusmørke. His first real debut on stage was with this band playing "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath at the local church youth club.
Andreas later formed the concept driven band The Chronicles of Father Robin, (who's still working on their triple debut...), and Les Fleur du Mal, again with the Momraks, and thus was the journey into the abode of progressive music well on it's way.
From early adolescence Andreas started listening to a wide variety of music, including A-ha, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, The Beatles, Jethro Tull, David Bowie, Bo Hansson, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. Eventually he found his way to more proggier acts like Yes, Rush, Genesis, King Crimson, Gentle Giant and Änglagård. Nowadays he still finds inspirations in all of the above, but classical, folk, jazz and ambient electronic music are also close to his heart.
Andreas lives in the countryside outside of Oslo with his family. He has a great fondness for coffee, philosophy, history and working with music in his self-built Vilthagen Studios.
