Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Bernhoft is prepping for a new solo album release ‘Islander’ (release date 28 April), set to follow up on the success of his sophomore album ‘Solidarity Breaks’ (2011).
Bernhoft’s new video for album taster ‘Come Around’ features a submerged artist accompanied by three synchronized swimmers. Pretty cool:
Since releasing his sophomore album ‘Solidarity Breaks’ in early 2011, Bernhoft has thrilled crowds around the world with his stripped-down yet amped-up one-man-band act. Largely on the strength of his looping-enhanced and wonder-inspiring live show, Bernhoft racked up more than 250,000 sales of Solidarity Breaks and earned more than three million views for “C’Mon Talk” (a beatbox-infused, acoustic-guitar-laced single that Bernhoft performed during his September 2011 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show). With his irresistibly of-the-moment approach to classic R&B and soul, Bernhoft also nabbed the Best Artist and Best Male Artist of the Year awards at the 2012 Spellemannprisen, which are the equivalent to the GRAMMYs in Norway.
May sees Bernhoft touring the UK, the Be-Ne-Lux countries, Switzerland, France and Germany.
