Every red moon, month or when the bright golden lights make you feel magic, Ether Site will recommend a band or singer/songwriter that you might like… Today we recommend Thomas Dybdahl.
Thomas Dybdahl is one of the most popular singer/songwriters in his home country Norway and has gathered critical acclaim all over Europe since. After his latest record Science went straight to number one in Norway, he is now ready to conquer the UK with his great blend of soft-spoken vocals and thoughtful melodies. This week he releases a digital EP, called B A Part, with his debut UK release, simply titled Thomas Dybdahl, following in the Autumn. His UK album will feature the best songs he’s released so far, which can be previewed on his Myspace profile.
Thomas Dybdahl has gained a growing international following for his elegant and expressive songs of love and loss, which have earned him comparisons to Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley.

Thomas will play in the UK and Europe several times in the upcoming months. His live shows have a more laidback but professional feel to them (often slowly building towards a climax during songs), as can be experience here.
