 Type:Culture, Music

One of Norway’s most popular singer songwriters, Thomas Dybdahl, will be playing a gig at Borderline in London on 13 May as well as at the Great Escape festival in Brighton on 14 and 15 May.

Dybdahl released his first solo album ‘That Great October Sound’ in 2002. The album received considerable air-time on Norwegian radio and was also praised by critics, resulting in Dybdahl landing a Norwegian Grammy Award for best pop solo act. Norway’s leading newspapers described his debut album as ‘astoundingly powerful’ and ‘a timeless modern classic’.

The following years proved to be very productive for Dybdahl and also cemented his position as one of Norway’s premier singer/songwriters. He released his second solo album, ‘Stray Dogs’, in 2003, quickly followed by ’One Day You'll Dance For Me, New York City’, which came out the following year. 2006 turned out to be a successful year for Dybdahl, seeing him release his fourth album and pick up his second Norwegian Grammy Award, this time being recognised as the best male artist. Dybdahl will assemble a collection of his best songs and release a ‘best of’ album this coming autumn

His live performances are always soulful and the Norwegian press has lauded his concerts on numerous occasions. Susanne Sundfør will be the supporting act at his show in London while Øyvind Jakobsen will perform with Dybdahl at The Duke of York’s Picturehouse on 15 May. Dydahl’s backing band, The Great October Sound, will also accompany him on his mini-tour of the UK.
