Bjørn Eidsvåg (born 17 March 1954 in Sauda) is a Norwegian singer, songwriter and ordained priest in the Lutheran Church of Norway. [1] He is a graduate (cand. theol.) from the MF Norwegian School of Theology. He has released more than 25 albums since his 1976 debut, and received the Norwegian music award the Spellemannsprisen at least three times.

His list of good songs is very long. He is probably best known for his melancholic 1983 song "Eg ser" (I see).
