See Sondre Lerche Live | Troubadour

Sondre Lerche is one of those artists for me that was love at first live show: I love to listen to his albums at home or in the car but his performance is what really grabbed a hold of me. The amount of energy and excitement that emanates from that adorable little Norwegian man is infectious, Sondre was born an entertainer; to use the word instrumentalist would be an understatement. Plus, to have the opportunity to see him in a space like the Troubadour is just ridiculous – it’s a miracle the show isn’t sold out yet so get ya tickets now folks!
