Norwegian neo-soul crooner Bernhoft continues to set the groove with his jazzy tunes and sultry vocals. At his live shows Bernhoft's throwback performance style and virtuosic backing band recall the craftsmanship of a bygone musical era, transporting fans back to the golden age of soul while remaining firmly oriented to the future with slick production elements. Whether he's nailing the falsetto harmonies of "Streetlights" or treating fans to his unique rendition of Tears for Fears' hit "Shout", the charismatic singer’s confidence and showmanship make for an unforgettable experience on his must-see tours.
Norway-born, New York-based Jarle Bernhoft got his start with the Norwegian band Explicit Lyrics before forming the rock band Span in the early '00s. After several successful releases -- including two Top 5 albums in Norway -- Span called it quits, and in 2008 Bernholdt made his solo debut with the soul-influenced album Ceramik City Chronicles. The album marked a new stylistic direction for the singer and proved popular with audiences, landing at No. 4 on the Norwegian charts. His next two albums landed at No. 1, and in 2014 he topped the Norwegian charts a third time with the critically acclaimed Islander LP. A passionate singer with prodigious performance chops, Berhhoft continues to thrill on his electrifying tours.
