John Halvorsen is a legend in the Flying Nun camp, from his founding of The Gordons, to his core involvement with Skeptics and Bailter Space, so there is no doubt that his still-relatively-new trio, Vörsen, is pretty fantastic too.
Made up of Halvorsen on vocals and guitar, Hayden Ellis on bass and Steve Cochrane on drums, Vörsen are based on the past 30 years of songs written and recorded by John Halvorsen.
