Sondre Lerche to tour the US

This September, Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche will tour the US in support of his new album, “Heartbeat Radio”.

Born and raised in Bergen, Norway, Lerche has been living in New York for several years, and has by now established himself as one of the most interesting songwriters of his generation.

Inspired by bands like A-ha, the Beach Boys, and Prefab Sprout, Sondre Lerche began taking guitar lessons at age eight. As a teenager he performed acoustic sets at the club where his older sister worked, before eventually being “discovered” by Norwegian producer HP Gundersen.

By the time Lerche had released his major-label debut, the then 19-year-old Norwegian was already something of a veteran in the music business. Signed to Virgin Norway in 2000, Lerche released a chart-topping EP, “You Know So Well”, in February 2001. His easily recognizable voice and songwriting abilities quickly drew attention throughout Europe. In recent years, he has used New York as a base for extensive touring throughout the US, which has created a loyal US fanbase as well.

“Heartbeat Radio”, which will be released on September 8, is Lerche’s boldest and most challenging record so far, mixing acoustic guitars with eclectic orchestral pop. Don’t miss out on the chance to witness this talented songwriter debut these new tunes.
