Award winning artist Sivert Høyem will be touring the UK in June to support the release of his new album “Endless Love”, which entered at #1 in the Norwegian Top 40.
1st June – Sound Control, Manchester
Sivert has a successful career having released four solo albums to acclaimed reviews and recognition. He has received Grammys (Norway) for his debut album “Moon Landing” and has successfully toured across Scandinavia, France, Germany and the Netherlands.
Sivert has also played such high profile shows as the Nobel Peace Prize Concert and the Manchester Cathedral alongside Peter Hook & The Light and Tim Burgess. These two new shows are not to be missed and should be emotional, following bravely from a recent personal tragedy.
Strong influences for his music come from Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Chris Isaak and his style has been labelled ‘majestic and hypnotic”. Working with Michael Ilbert (Cardigans and The Hives) this album is certain to send Sivert’s career to the next level. Sivert’s fifth solo album, “Endless Love”, is centred around Sivert’s unique qualities as a singer.
The second single from the album, “Handsome Savior” especially shows off these qualities. The production of Ulf “Rockis” Ivarsson (well known as the producer of Sweden’s best known rock musicians, Thåström) really pushes this brooding blues ballad forward, but it’s the hope in the form of a gospel choir that makes this one of the loveliest tracks on the album.
