Daniel Norgren Ends U.S. Tour with Two Shows in NYC This Weekend

October 11th, 2017

Inspired by his dad’s local rock career—and by the romantic picture of America portrayed in movies—Swedish singer-songwriter Daniel Norgren (above, performing “People Are Good” at last year’s Pickathon) has been doing his own winning take on Southern-fried Americana, folk rock and bluesy country for more than a decade. (NPR Music says, “His rock-steady ragtime piano playing has a chooglin’ ease, and his voice would be right at home echoing off the walls of Levon Helm’s barn.”) Thanks to his engaging live performances and his recorded catalog, including 2015’s The Green Stone (stream it below) and Alabursy (stream it below), Norgren has already made a name for himself in Europe, and he’s currently out on the road doing the very same thing in the United States. His American tour closes out in New York City this weekend with two shows, on Friday at The Bowery Ballroom (with William Tyler Band doing a full-quartet appearance) and on Saturday at Rough Trade NYC (with Odetta Hartman).
