Pål Moddi Knutsen is a Norwegian musician and author. His music has been described as a blend of folk music and pop, although he refers to himself as a singer and storyteller. Moddi is famous for his interpretations and translations of other artists, such as Vashti Bunyan, Pussy Riot and the Norwegian poet Helge Stanges.

Pål Knutsen was born 18 February 1987 and grew up on the island Senja in Northern Norway. He debuted 5 years old on the local radio station Draugen, singing a traditional sea shanty. At 18, he adopted the old family name Moddi and started writing his own songs under that name.
