Bernhoft: Looping With Style

Jarle Bernhoft hails from Norway with the apparent mission of pushing the limits of what a one-man band can do. With a long history in the Norwegian Opera and a handful of rock groups, he brings out a soulful mix of elements varying at random, typically leaning in a slightly avant-garde direction, which has earned him a growing fanbase in the past few years. He has notably established himself as a captivating live performer, in which he renditions complex studio song versions by looping acoustic guitar and vocals. Following the release of his latest album, Islander, he will be performing at the Bowery Ballroom on June 24.
