Norwegian Sensation Thomas Dybdahl on Tour With Sondre Lerche and Willy Mason

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- The acclaimed breakthrough artist from Norway, Thomas Dybdahl, is set to embark on a North American tour beginning March 14th at the House of Blues' The Parish in New Orleans in support of his March 13th Rykodisc release "Science." He will join Sondre Lerche and Willy Mason throughout the tour.

At 27 years old, Dybdahl possesses a true strength and maturity in his songwriting that defies categorization. NPR has said of Dybdahl, "His delicate but lush music recalls that of Tim Buckley, Nick Drake and other forward-thinking songwriters." And Jon Pareles of The New York Times states, "Thomas Dybdahl writes songs that move in for extreme close-ups: his acoustic guitar, his breathy voice, his vows of love... the tempos are glacial and the instruments few and pristine, so that every gesture is exposed. Anything less than total grace would turn precious and cloying, but Mr. Dybdahl maintains his poise; each song has the delicate suspense of a drawn breath."

Upon first listen, "Science" draws you in through the bare richness of the music. Delicate guitars meet soul-filled vocals that keep the listener anticipating each gentle nuance. His music is perhaps best enjoyed while open and able to absorb its many sounds, inflections and subtleties.
