Thomas Dybdahl

Thomas Dybdahl made a splash debut with his first album "That Great October Sound" (CCAP 2002). Dybdahl seemed to emerge from nowhere - suddenly he was just there. The album's captivating opening track From Grace, with its beautiful Jeff Buckleyesque falsetto vocal line, immediately secured Thomas Dybdahl a place in the spotlight. Some very positive live and album reviews further solidified Dybdahl's position as one of the strongest contenders in the Newcomer of the Year awards. His second album “Stray Dogs” (CCAP 2003) picked up where its predecessor left. This is soul in its most modern idiom – tunes that are destined to last for a lifetime.

Also look out for the latest supergroup to emerge on the Norwegian scene, The National Bank, that features members from Jaga Jazzist, Susanna & The Magical Orchestra, Big Bang and notably, Dybdahl on vocals.

Thomas Dybdah’s third album, “One day you’ll dance for me, New York City” is scheduled for release in October 2004.
