Jarle Bernhoft, also known as "Bern/Hoft" or simply "Bernhoft," is a multi-talented musician hailing
from Norway. Bernhoft has worked as a singer, composer, lyricist, and instrumentalist, and his live shows often feature him
playing as a one-man-band, with a sampler and a guitar. This soulful singer released his debut solo album, "Ceramik City Chronicles,"
in 2008, which quickly generated buzz on the scene. The debut album delivered Bernhoft's powerful voice laid over funky tracks
like "On Time," and perhaps one of his most popular songs, "Streetlights." "Ceramik City Chronicles" reached the number 4
position on the chart in Norway, and it gave listeners a taste of what Bernhoft was all about.
Following his debut solo
release, Bernhoft released a live album in 2010 called "1:Man 2: Band." The double album consists of one half that includes
recordings for his show at a jazz venue in Norway, with the other half featuring recordings from his performances at the Molde
Jazz Festival and at Rockefeller Music Hall.
Bernhoft returned to the studio to begin recording his second solo album,
titled "Solidarity Breaks," which was later released in 2011. The album took Bernhoft's success to the next level, and it
reached the top of Norway's record chart for seven weeks, and it also charted in France and Denmark. While most of the instrumentals
were performed by Bernhoft, the album also featured a number of guest musicians, like drummer Ed Harcourt, harmonica player
Knut Reiersrud, bassist David Wallumrod, keyboardist Torstein Lofthus, and vocalists Kwame Ogoo and Audun Erlien. "Solidarity
Breaks" produced the single "Choices," and the Tears for Fears cover "Shout," which proved to be one of the most popular tracks
on the album. Bernhoft recently performed for the first time at Glastonbury Festival, and shortly after, he released his third
studio album, "Islander."
Bernhoft's Breakthrough Album
Prior to embarking on his solo career, musician
Bernhoft was a member of the band Explicit Lyrics. From 1996 to 1998, Explicit Lyrics released the albums, "Fleshpulse," "Flow,"
and "Lipshave." After Explicit Lyrics disbanded, Bernhoft's next project was his work with the band Span. After releasing
two albums, "Mass Distraction" and "Vs. Time," Span also disbanded. By 2008, Bernhoft had released his first solo album, "Ceramik
City Chronicles," which marked his breakthrough as a solo artist. The unexpectedly soulful album was a hit, and songs like
"On Time" and "Streetlights" became fan favorites. After his breakthrough solo release, Bernhoft followed up with his second
studio release, "Solidarity Breaks," which was an even bigger hit. Topping Norway's record chart and landing on the charts
in France and Denmark, the album resonated with fans all over. Bernhoft continued to attract attention in the United States
as well, and he made appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on Conan. Bernhoft's most recent record, "Islander," was
released in 2014, and it has already been met with praise.
