We wanna send you and a friend to see Sondre Lerche!
Sondre Lerche is a Brooklyn-based Norwegian singer/songwriter/composer/guitarist. His eclectic and richly melodic debut, ‘Faces Down,’ written and recorded at 16, was named among the best albums of the year, and listed as one of the most remarkable debuts of 2002 by Rolling Stone Magazine. Follow-up ‘Two Way Monologue’ was an Album Of The Year in Uncut Magazine and solidified Lerche’s global momentum. He toured extensively across the world both solo, with his band, and opening for artists such as Air, Stereolab and Elvis Costello, appearing on stages such as Carnegie Hall, Hollywood Bowl and Royal Albert Hall.
In 2006 Lerche released the jazz-inflected Billboard Jazz Top 5 album, ‘Duper Sessions,’ followed by ‘Phantom Punch’ — his first album not recorded in Norway — as well as his acclaimed Original Soundtrack for the 2007 Steve Carell/Juliette Binoche hit movie ‘Dan In Real Life,’ where Lerche also appeared in a cameo as himself. In 2010, Lerche co-wrote the song “Dear Laughing Doubters” for another Carell hit comedy, ‘Dinner For Schmucks.’
Having relocated to Brooklyn, Lerche’s countless dynamic live performances, often completely alone on stage, continued to reach new listeners, while his music continuously explored new themes and styles. And if all of that wasn’t enough, Lerche appear on an official postage stamp in Norway.
