Album Notes
"A master piece! A wonderfully swinging low-keyed record". Ekstra Bladet

"An unusually fine record. An attentiveness and intimacy which goes deep into the heart". Politiken

"The lyrics are sly, wry, shrewdly compassionate, & beautifully crafted, as are his arrangements". The Planet” Radio National

"The partnership of Lysdal & Rasmussen is a solace to the soul" Jyllandsposten

"On all levels– harmony – in the best sense of the word" Berlingske

Jens Lysdal is one of Denmarks best reviewed singers, composers, and guitarists and a triple award-winning producer.
His music is featured on numerous danish and international film- and TV-productions.

On "Keep the light in your eyes" he has teamed up with icon bassplayer Hugo Rasmussen (Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Cornelis Vreeswijk) and on several tracks - a symphony orchestra
Twelve beautifully crafted and arranged songs, among them three swedish classics.

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 many of both his newer and older songs, are featured in numerous danish and international films and TV-productions.

What makes him stand out as an artist - also live - 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.

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)
