By the time Sondre Lerche had released his major-label debut (2002s critically acclaimed Faces Down), the then 19-year-old Norwegian wunderkind was already a veteran of the music world. Signed to Virgin Norway in 2000, Lerche released the chart-topping EP You Know So Well in February 2001. A commercially successful follow-up EP, No Ones Gonna Come, was released in June of the same year, accompanied by numerous local performances and increasing industry praise. Lerches distinctive voice and natural talent for writing appealing and alternately sunny and melancholic pop tunes quickly established him as a definite contender for significance throughout Europe and beyond. This is dropping in September so enjoy getting it early.
