"One of my favorite artists who seems to embody brilliance, the quintessential musician, is the one and only Sondre Lerche. His music, his style, his words are combined to create the most unique sound I've ever heard. You may have heard his songs if you watched "Dan in Real Life." He wrote the soundtrack and performed the last number in the "Wedding" scene. This is where I first fell in love with Sondre's sensational sound and from there, I've compiled a growing list of favorite tracks.
His new album, entitled "Heart Beat Radio" debuted today; and Molly and I went to the Bowery Ballroom to see him for his first show of the tour. You can't beat live music and Sondre's performance was nothing short of impeccable. He really has a way of pumping up the crowd considering he didn't have a band, back-up vocalists, special lighting, anything. It was just Sondre and his guitar: raw, pure, real." [In the City]
