Ole Paus (born 9 February 1947; full name Ole Christian Paus) is a Norwegian troubadour in the Swedish-Norwegian ballad tradition, an author, a poet, and an actor. He is widely considered one of Norway's most popular singer-songwriters.[1]

Background[edit]

He is the son of General Ole Otto Paus and a member of the Paus family. He is the father of composer Marcus Paus.

Work[edit]

Ole Paus debuted as a singer-songwriter in 1970 and as an author the following year, after he was discovered by Alf Cranner and Alf Prøysen, respectively. He was one of the central figures of the so-called visebølgen i Norge, i.e. troubadours in the tradition of Evert Taube, Cornelis Vreeswijk and others.
