Tomorrow: Sondre Lerche @ Grog Shop

I know I’ve seen Sondre Lerche before, but I believe it was pre-blog years (aka pre 2005).  So, it’s been a while… While I was in love with his early stuff, he’s never been known to stay in one place too long, and we kind of went our separate ways for a while.  Now, his music has evolved over the years and I feel like his new album has come back to the place that originally made me take note.  Check out some of the the new videos he’s release, and some articles below!

"Influenced by exotic Latin American music, singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche started writing songs in his early teens; growing up in Norway, his influences were much more varied than they might have been if he had been born in the U.S., where radio stations adhere more strictly to formats.

Living on what he has called the 'outskirts of popular culture,' he was introduced to a wild mix of music that has subsequently informed his pop sensibilities."

I also hope he covers this at the show!


"Norwegian musician Sondre Lerche has had a career that most artists would kill for. In his early thirties, he released eight studio albums, composed a film soundtrack and embarked upon numerous international tours. He got his start in the early 2000s, making the sort of smooth indie pop you would expect to hear in a coffeeshop or a bookstore, but after his marriage dissolved in 2013, he started to reinvent his music and style.

Lerche isn’t known for making dramatic changes from album to album, but his new album, Pleasure, features electronic sounds and unusual arrangements. The new release builds on Lerche’s jazz and pop background while drawing upon electronic influences from the '70s and '80s. "
