Music Programme 2018
Danish Søren Huss has made a name for himself, both as a solist and as a songwriter, as one of Denmark’s most important artists. He has underscored this status with his new album Midtlivsvisen (Mid Life Verses) from autumn 2017 and the subsequent long series of concerts throughout the land. Midtlivsvisen is his third solo album and grows out of the Danish folk song tradition. The album’s intimate musicality had the critics reaching for superlatives, and it won Album of the Year at Steppeulven 2018, the Danish music critics’ prize. Søren Huss (born 1975) was known as the singer from Saybia, when the band, a bunch of school pals from Funen, had a huge hit in 2002 with the album The Second You Sleep. The album took first place on the hitlists and Saybia were stars. The band made a series of albums subsequently, and has a parallel life to Søren Huss’ solo career, with the occasional break. Søren Huss won further success, this time solo, with his first solo album Troen & Ingen (Faith and None) from 2010, which deals with sorrow and bereavement.
