Swedish Songwriter Daniel Norgren
September 22, 2017 @ 9:00 pm$20
KEXP & Pickathon present Swedish songwriter Daniel Norgren, performing at Tractor Tavern on his first-ever North American tour with special guest William Tyler. This event is 21+.
Touring outside of Europe for the first time this Fall, Daniel Norgren & band prepare for stateside introduction. Although his name may be unfamiliar in North America, Daniel Norgren has built a notable career over the past 10 years in his home country and across much of Europe. The combination of a deep catalog and a live show that cuts to the core have been the fuel for a steadily-growing audience where fans are currently lucky to catch him at a venue smaller than 1,000 capacity. A multi-instrumentalist whose live performance includes guitar, piano, harmonica, and accordion. Included also as part of this live band is longtime music companion Anders Grahn on bass and drummer Erik Berntsson. Norgren’s sound is distinctly homegrown and authentic, and his songs are incredibly powerful with a knack for catchy melodies and vocal harmonies. This is a rare, first opportunity to see Europe’s best kept secret and undoubtedly most captivating live performer – don’t miss it.
