Sondre Lerche/JBM

9 p.m. Monday, February 15. The Old Rock House, 1200 South 7th Street.



Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche released his first "mature" pop album, Faces Down, in 2001. Since then, he's reinvented himself with each of his five additional albums, hop scotching from indie pop-rock to jazz to the soundtrack of 2007's Dan in Real Life, which found him collaborating with Regina Spektor on the track "Hell No." His most recent album, Heartbeat Radio, was released in September and has received mostly positive reviews. Late last year, Lerche's cover of Animal Collective's "Bluish" blew up on the blog scene, which added yet another audience to his demographic. His current tour is a solo affair sans backing band, which should make for an exceptionally intimate affair. JBM, a.k.a. wintry folkie Jesse Marchant, will open the show.
