ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

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 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). It 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 top-level musicians - among them:
Greg Leisz (Joni Mitchell, KD Lang, Bill Frisell, Ryan Adams, Emmylou Harris) Tim O' Brien (Mark Knopfler, The Chieftains), Danny Frankel (Rickie Lee Jones, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Marianne Faithful), Hugo Rasmussen (Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins) , Glen Fukunaga (Dixie Chicks, Robert Plant, Bob Dylan)

On Jens Lysdal's music:

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

Jens Lysdal has created one of the most solid works in newer danish popular music-history:

"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

"A solace to the soul" Jyllandsposten

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