Jens Lekman
Jens Lekman
Jens Lekman, born and reared in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a songwriter, adventurer and retired bingo hall employee. Traveling our globe as a wide open receptor of all it has to offer, Lekman repurposes for his own oeuvre the world’s great, lost pop hooks of past and present. He breathes into them his droll senses of humor, romance and melody and gives them a newfound buoyancy. Since his 2004 trifecta of EPs (Maples Leaves, Rocky Dennis in Heaven, You Are the Light) and right on through his acclaimed 2007 full-length, Night Falls Over Kortedala, Lekman has made hopeless romantics of us all. In a musical language that has roots in the work of Arthur Russell, The Magnetic Fields, Calvin Johnson and Modern Lovers, Lekman’s songs serve as a reminder to look closer at the world around us, to appreciate the beauty when it’s both in and out of context; at its most heartbreaking, its most loving, and its most absurd.

Sorcha Richardson
Hi guys. I'm Sorcha Richardson. I'm a singer/songwriter from Dublin, Ireland living in Brooklyn. I started my first band with two friends from school when I was ten years old and have been making music ever since. I write songs in my bedroom about the days and nights I spend with my friends, the places we go, the people we meet, the things we say and the things we don't. I love to hear from the people who listen to my music. If you want to send me something you've made - art/photography/music - or just say hello, my email is sorcharichardson@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by"
