The best combination of strong vocal and great songs, that´s Søren Sko…

Soren Sko released 5 albums together with guitarist Palle Torp as the band Sko/Torp. This duo re-released the west coast music sound on the danish musicscene and Soren Sko was by day one a comet on the music arena in Denmark and has since then been one of the top singers in Denmark.

After the Sko/Torp days he started his solocareer, kicking off by 2 pop releases on Virgin Records. The albums “Sko” & “Shine” were the straight popmusic with touch of west coast sound, but not the strongest side of Soren Sko.

In 2002 he released the album “Unpolished” were great pop- and westcoast songs were recorded like Soren Sko like them. The album was excellent and great duets with Rick Astley, Curtis Stigers, Anders Blichfeldt (Big Fat Snake), Poul Krebs and others.

Late 2002 the new recordlabel Noiz Music released the followup album to “Unpolished”, and this time the recordlabel actually gave Soren Sko free terms to make an album that with a mix of poprock and westcoast musicstyle, a place were Soren Sko is strongest.

So the album “Faith Hope Love” has been the best release so far from him, if you like his vocalworks back from the Sko/Torp days. “Faith Hope Love” is also produced by another wellknowned musician from the westcoast scene, “Boe Larsen” the keyboardplayer and songwriter from the band Jonz.

In 2004 the album “One For My Baby” was released, an album with covers of classic songs and recorded in N.Y.C.
