Ragnar ZSolberg, or else known as Zolberg (Sign) (or Ragnar Solberg) has been making music since he was 1 years old, then playing the guitar. Only ten years later he released his first solo album "Upplifun" with 8 originial pop/rock songs.

Now the 24 year old talented musician and producer has released 4 albums with his band Sign and with whom he has toured with Skid Row, The Wildhearts, Wednesday 13 & Aiden, played at Download's main stage and won a Gold disc in the UK for their daring and provocative tribute version of Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills", released on the Kerrang! compilation album "Made in Heaven".

For the past 4 years though, Ragnar has been concentrating on his solo work again and 2008 saw the release of "The Circle", an album on which he played all the instruments him self.
The lyrical theme on that album was death and love, as Ragnar had recently lost his father in a struggle with the ALS disease, and he had also gotten engaged with his girlfriend.
Musically, it was about going as far as possible from what he had already done with Sign and pushing his own boundaries as a singer, producer, writer and a musician.

2 years later as 2011 is getting near, Ragnar is ready with his next effort "The Hanged Man", an album performed mainly by himself that sees Ragnar expanding his music even further and combining it with the edgier rock elements that had become Sign's trademark.
