Upfront presents Erlend Øye & The Rainbows - March 23, 8 pm @ The Bee, Publika

Since the late ‘90s, Norwegian singer/songwriter Erlend Øye has been a prolific force of nature, releasing numerous albums, EPs, and singles with his two primary bands, the acoustic duo Kings of Convenience and the more electronic-based The Whitest Boy Alive. Outside of these two projects, he has acted as a collaborator with a wide array of pop and electronic acts, most notably apprearing as the vocalist on Röyksopp’s 2011 debut album Melody A.M. A native of Bergen, Norway, Øye is also the founder of the independent label Bubbles Records. Officially announcing the end of his Whitest Boy Alive project in 2013, he shifted his focus squarely on his solo work, traveling to Reykjavík to record his long-awaited second solo album with Icelandic reggae band Hjálmar. The resulting album, Legao, was released in October 2014.
