Thomas Dybdahl has been announced as the first signing on Larry Klein's new label, in partnership with Universal Music, Strange Cargo.

Manager Nick Mander today revealed that Norwegian singer and songwriter Thomas Dybdahl is the first signing on Lary Klein’s new record label, Strange Cargo. With three platinum albums to his credit in his homeland, Thomas Dybdahl will launch “Songs” with a series of concerts in Europe, beginning in early May. Before the European dates, he will be showcased to the US market during March.

- We are incredibly excited to be working with Larry Klein and the Universal labels around the world. Thomas has an ever increasing following in Europe and the US who have been patiently waiting for releases to be made available and to see him live. We now have the opportunity and support to make sure that this happens starting with the European dates in May and US and Canada dates in June, says Nick Mander in a comment.

Critically acclaimed

Larry Klein has produced critically acclaimed work by Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, Melody Gardot, Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux and Steely Dan’s Walter Becker, among many other stellar artists.  He has been recognised with five Grammys, including those for Mitchell’s 1994 “Turbulent Indigo” and Hancock’s 2007 “River: The Joni Letters,” which he co-produced.  Klein has also worked with such superstars as Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, Don Henley, and Bonnie Raitt. 

After the first signing on his new label Lary Klein said:

 “I'm honoured to be a part of bringing Thomas' music to the rest of the world.  His work has an intrinsic emotional power, and reflects an attention to subtlety that I rarely hear.  I couldn't imagine a more exciting artist to be Strange Cargo's first release, as I'm a passionate evangelist when it comes to what he does.  I'm grateful to Max Hole and Universal Music for giving me the opportunity to create a home for music that I love, and for creating a situation where I can work with the talented people at Decca/Universal to do so.”
