 Location:England, London

Thomas Dybdahl, one of Norway's most popular singers, returns to London for yet another concert following last month's successful gig in Camden. This time he brings his own band as well as special guest singer Sadie Jemmett.

His debut album '…that great October sound' was released in October 2002 and included 11 songs that were practically written, produced, played and recorded by Dybdahl himself. He provided the vocals, the guitar, the bass, the organ, the harmonica as well as other instruments on the record. The album was mastered by Scott Hull (Miles Davies, Uncle Tupelo, Bruce Springsteen, etc) in Classic Sound Studio, New York.

The second album, 'Stray Dogs', was released in Norway October 2003. The album was written in New York and at other “exotic” locations where Thomas could go and find the time and space to write. Once again the reviews were overwhelming, the tours were sold out and the album and the singles off the album did great. He was nominated for two prices at both the Norwegian Grammy Award and the alternative Grammy again that year.
 
Thomas Dybdahl is a hard working artist and has the last year found time to write songs for other artists, movies as well as writing and recording his third album, producing a film soundtrack and contributing in other various projects. He is also the lead singer of the new platinum selling Norwegian band The National Bank, featuring members from Jaga Jazzist and Big Bang.

His third album in three years, 'One Day You’ll Dance For Me, New York City', was released in Norway in October 2004 and went straight to No. 1 at the official album charts and sold to gold in a couple of days. It has now sold to platinum in Norway.
