Laust Sonne could barely speak when he first picked up drums at the tender age of 3 and as today, years on, hes still out there doing his thing, not only playing drums, but also guitars, piano, synths and keyboards and doing vocals. Now he is ready to hit the charts as a solo act, releasing his very personal debut album completely under own name.
This album is the result of his own vision, his own songwriting, and his own production. Its played by him and has a modern electronic pop sound that suits his beautiful voice so perfectly.
Its an electronic sounding album, that embraces everything that is great about the 'European sound, its catchy, its fresh and feel-good.
I started playing drums nearly as I learned to walk Laust explains, and I have since played thousands of live concerts, from small clubs to huge stadiums, have been in famous bands, had my own projects on the sideline, picked up guitar and piano, even saxophone, but I somehow feel that in the last few years I have found what I finally can call 'my sound. This is me, after years as a professional, with a production that completely suits my vocals, it feels like everything is coming together.
I have played music in all different genres, and with this album I ve allowed myself to embrace them all, you can hear things in there that is not the average modern electronic pop, and that makes me really happy
At the age of 20 Laust left for first London then Los Angeles, USA , and on his return four years later he became a real personality in Scandinavia, not only because of his massive musical talent, but also as the public figure he is, a real, nice and approachable pop star.
Laust Sonne has toured all over the world, played 1000s of concerts in metropoles such as Beijing, New York, Paris, London and Berlin along the way. He has had 3 albums to reach the top of the Danish charts, and 3 albums peaking at no. 2.Hes had 5 no 1 singles on the airplay charts including Everything Glows og Spell on You, all of them receiving the most played this week tag on the biggest radio station in DK.His releases has both received rave reviews and topped the Danish radio charts for long periods of time. Hes won 4 Grammy, a Nordic lifetime achievement award and the 'musician of the year award in Denmark, the most prestigious music award for musicians there.
We are now writing 2016, and it is a perfect time to expand his musical universe, time to present to the world a deeply personal album that is hugely radio friendly, catchy, fresh and absolutely perfect in it s execution. Its mixed by probably the most in demand mixer in Scandinavia, Anders Schumann, he is behind an endless list of hits records.
On why Laust has chosen Germany as the place to start it all he says, Berlin has always had a special ring to me with it s great musical history, especially the era where Bowie and Iggy Pop reigned stands out for me, and the extremely creative electronic scene, coming also from the other big cities and Germany in general, is also very inspiring. I really think that there are fantastic musical things happening in Germany at the moment in my musical field and so I very much look forward to be part of it all.
I know very well that Im in it for the long haul with this album and I look forward to get it on radio, promote it, do radio/TV and be back on stage either solo, with some DJs or with my full band to perform.
