The Courage to Believe is my ninth album. It's a faith centered album with 12 piano & vocals based inspirational ballads, written in gratitude to God and the gift of life. After the initial releases of three music videos, the complete album was released on July 2, 2020.
The official album releases of Finn Harald Røed can be played and downloaded in MP3-format from this website. Some of the albums include printable CD-covers with lyrics.
This album is written in gratitude to God and the plan of salvation, which is clearly reflected by the lyrics. I wrote the songs between November 2018 and May 2020 in Bærum and Skien, with a remarkable feeling that this was something I was meant to do. The album and it's music videos is my most important work to date.
My 8th album, written and recorded between January and September 2017, strongly colored by experiences from the last couple of years. The songs came to be during challenging times, representing "pieces of life" the way I interpreted it all through music and lyrics. This synthesizer and vocals based album means a lot to me.
This el-guitar based rock album contains 11 songs, all written and recorded 2013-2014. For a long time I had wanted to return to my roots as a rock band singer, which eventually ended up with my most hard hitting album ever. My personal favorites are the title cut "Scream at the wall" and the ballad "Goodbye my love".
A collection of 12 songs written and recorded over a 20 year period (1991–2011), including a 2011-version of the ballad "Heaven can wait", the poetic "Painted world" (2011), the single releases "Anything for love" (2009) and "Christmas is coming" (2010), some Kingdom X tracks and a live version of "Believe me deceive me" (1997).
This album's 12 songs were written and recorded between 2003-2008, and finished in 2008 while I was living in Sweden with my familiy. It was released on November 8, 2008, while I was living in Sweden. It was a long on and off process, and I felt grateful and relieved when finally being able to present these 43 minutes of new music.
It had been 10 years since my previous official solo release. While still working on the long time scheduled follow-up for Transformation, all material for this album was both written, recorded and mixed during two creative and productive weeks in July 2006. All the songs have the same tempo and share the same main chords.
CD released June 1, 1996. Recorded in my own studio and a studio in Moss between November 1995 - March 1996. This album has 11 pop tracks, 5 experimentals and 3 remixes. Several guest musicians participate (guitar, bass, backing vocals, drums and trumpet). The album later became available online on Spotify, iTunes etc.
The Kingdom X was a techno pop project band, and my most important creative occupation in the early 90's. In fact, it consumed most of my time for about two years. This album contains 10 selected tracks recorded in 1993-94. I was the band's songwriter, and made every sound and note (synths, samplers, vocals) on this album.
My debut album (MC) released in 1994. The music style was a great contrast to what I was normally doing at the time (teknopop with "The Kingdom X"). These 10 romantic ballads have el-piano and vocals as main instruments. Unfortunately, the master DAT-tape is lost. The MP3-files are digital copies from one of the MCs.
