R&B and alternative rock has been giving each other flirtatious looks for quite some time. Truls Heggero has taken the final step and decided to get into bed with urban, glittery pop music. The celebrated songwriter, vocalist and composer won the appraisal of the audience working with Lukestar, who played at Roskilde Festival in 2011. The Norwegian falsetto towered above guitar-laden power pop with a Nordic feel. As of now the guitar strings are less prominent and replaced by booty shaking electronic pop and soul. Judging by initial responses this brave change of clothing will continue to please fans of the big man’s former bands.
Label: EMI Norge / Parlophone
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
