ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Most important is the strong integrity in Lysdal’s appearance.
Because even if the frames are wide and the musical possibilities are many, there is a core in Lysdal’s art that is present in everything he does". (Politiken, Denmark)

"The lyrics are sly, wry, shrewdly compassionate, & beautifully crafted, as are his arrangements".
(Radio National, Australia)

"Maybe it’s a sign that this is a big old global village after all, but Lysdal has made a real contribution to the American roots-rock tradition that includes Hiatt, Ry Cooder and the Blasters" (Korean Times)

"Dreamy guitars, discreet accordeon-sounds – the danish Singer and composer spellbounds".
(Hör Zu - Germany)

One of Denmarks best reviewed singers, composers, and guitarists and a triple award-winning producer.

His style is often subtle and poetic, but at the same time with an unmistakable sharpness in both playing and writing.

His songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners, and both his newer and older albums are frequently played on air and featured in numerous danish and international films.

He is known for always playing and recording with the top-level musicians - among them:
Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, KD Lang, Bill Frisell, Ryan Adams, Emmylou Harris) Danny Frankel (Rickie Lee Jones, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Marianne Faithful), Tim O´Brien (Mark Knopfler, The Chieftains), Hugo Rasmussen (Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins)

What makes him stand out is that he is not only a very personal singer and songwriter, but also a high level guitarist (before going solo he worked as a sideman for the cream of danish artists, and backing international artists like The Pointer Sisters, Donna Summer and Sergio Mendes). That makes his music and concerts unique - the focus shifting between the songs and his guitar-playing, reinforcing each other.
