Norwegian pop, indie rock and jazz singer-songwriter and guitarist Sondre Lerche was born on September 5, 1982 in Bergen, Norway. Lerche learnt how to play guitar during his childhood. He was disappointed in classical guitar and his teacher introduced his Bossa Nova and some other Brazilian music. This influenced him a lot resulting in creating complex melodies and using complex chords. At the same time, he was listening to popular 1980s acts like A-Ha, the Beach Boys and Prefab Sprout. Lerche began his professional music career in 2001 releasing his debut album Faces Down. The album was released in Europe at first and later in the United States and in Japan. This release earned Lerche Norwegian Grammy for Best New Act. You can download Sondre Lerche’s debut album in mp3 from our site.
