Tomorrow (Friday), Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche will be coming to the radio station as part of Live Music Week. Quickly gaining success in the United States since his 2002 release of Faces Down, he is currently on tour for his newest album, Heartbeat Radio, which was released last month. Lerche is also known for composing the soundtrack to the major motion picture, “Dan In Real Life”. Be sure to listen tomorrow morning at 7 AM if you want to wake up to some lovely, jazzy tunes!
Here is a video of him performing “Good Luck” off of Heartbeat Radio at the Mod Club in Toronto last month; check out the album version, which incorporates a beautiful segment of strings.
