Skaug is a singer/songwriter, musician, and one of Norway's best-selling poets. His texts are widely shared. The poetry collections «Følg med nå» (Pay Attention Now, 2019) and «Ikke slipp» (Don't Let Go, 2020) have been printed in over 42,000 copies.

Later collections, such as “Hjemmekamp” (Home Game, 2020), “Oppsykk” (Promotion 2021), and “Dikt til navngitte menn” (Poems for Named Men, 2022), have also become remarkable successes. In an interview with VG, Trygve Skaug himself says about the success: “That people find comfort in my words, comforts me too. My texts are written very nakedly, honestly, and unpretentiously. Therefore, it hits me hard when I can be there for others.

He was the vocalist in the band St Morritz from its start in 2006, but in 2012 he went solo. After this, he has released four solo albums, and in 2017, the beloved poet and artist was nominated for the Spellemann Prize for the album “Songs You Will Get When I Die.”

In the spring of 2021, he participated in Norwegian TV2’s popular program “Every Time We Meet.” Later that same year, he was awarded the Bjørg Vik Prize for “…the ability to reach out, touch, and provide literary experiences for many with his poems. By using new channels of communication such as Instagram and other social media, the prize winner has brought new generations to read poetry.”
