The music of the Beautybag is a collection of travel notes, a double bottom suitcase, a forgotten diary, endless love serenades and shameless gossip.
The band is led by singer-songwriter Richard Nygård. He studied visual arts at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. During a study stay in Antwerp he decided to specialize in songwriting and performing.
The Beautybag has a strong focus on atmospheric sounds and polyphonic singing. Rhythmically the band is a mix between Americana and british pop. All songs are written by Richard Nygaard, and arranged by The Beautybag.
