JANUARY 27th, 2014 -
After his critically acclaimed debut album, The Future, which catapulted the Greenlandic singer/songwriter from obscurity to the #1 spot on Amazon UK charts (besting The Rolling Stones), major TV & radio appearances on BBC Breakfast and Sky News, features in The Sunday Times, Scotland Herald and Rolling Stone, touring with Emmylou Harris and a gig at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, Simon Lynge is getting ready to release his second full length album, The Absence Of Fear.
Recorded in Hollywood at Bell Sound and funded by fans through Kickstarter, it showcases Simon Lynge as a world class songwriter and singer and features the talents of some of today's finest musicians, including a special appearance by legendary guitarist, Steve Cropper, on Simon's version of the classic (Sittin' On The) Dock Of the Bay.
It is a warm and lush album, which reflects the stage of life Simon is at with a wife and two young kids at home; a mature, yet playful snapshot of a human being alive in a time of great change and turmoil.
Simon Lynge will be touring worldwide throughout 2014, in support of The Absence Of Fear.
