Andreas Aase is a guitarist, composer and producer from Trondheim, Norway, whose main focus is the interpretation and renewal of traditional Scandinavian music. His solo records "Maus", "Unu", and "Tre" display meeting points between guitar instruments and folk music, “Fir” is a quartet record in the folk/jazz idiom, and “V. (Bach)" turns baroque music into Nordic-sounding guitar repertoire. Over the years, Aase has played at festivals such as Olavsfestdagene, JazzFest, VossaJazz, Nidaros Bluesfestival, Osa-festivalen, Berlin Acoustic Guitar Nights, and Ellnora Guitar Festival (USA) . Aase plays instruments built by Arnt Rian in Trondheim, Norway.

He spent his early career as a sideman for other artists in the studio and on the stage, and he was a regular member of singer-songwriter Åge Aleksandersen's various bands between 1997 and 2004. Aase has contributed to ensemble works and commissions such as Frode Fjellheim's "Biejjien Vuelie - Solkvad" , Svein Folkvords "Across" , Tom Steinar Lund's "Trio de Janeiro" , and Ola Kvernberg's film music for "Nord" . He has collaborated with fiddler Sturla Eide since 2003, and the duo's recording "Glimmer" , was nominated in the folk category of the Norwegian award Spellemannprisen in 2004.

In 2009, he completed the Ph.D.-level artistic research project "Improvisation in Scandinavian Guitar Tradition" .
