American songwriter composes honest and poetic indie pop

Minneapolis-based songwriter Jonathan Edward Sunde, better known as J.E. Sunde, released his fourth album ‘Alice, Gloria and Jon’ in June of this year. On this record, he delves into the fascinating concept of coming of age in his lyrics, accompanied by groove-centered arrangements filled with synths and acoustic instruments. Together with his trusted musical companion Shane Leonard, he created this new album, drawing inspiration from krautrock, J.J Cale, and 80s synthpop. After performances at venues like Paradiso, Muziekgieterij, and Lutherse Kerk, Sunde will come to De Kromme Haring in November for a poetic and intimate concert.

Support: Roofman (solo)
The music of Roofman is a refuge for indie folk with metaphorical lyrics, often characterized by slowly building climaxes. The ambitious project surrounding the promising songwriter Thijs van der Meulen could already be spotted during try-outs at Club 3voor12 in dB’s and at De Nijverheid and was in the opening acts for Walter Martin and Matt Perriment. Roofman celebrates life in his hometown with his new single ‘Hometown Song.’ Roofman about the song: “Hometown Song is for all the people who choose to spend the rest of their lives in their small hometown. He wrote the song after attempting to move to Amsterdam a few years ago, which ultimately wasn’t for him: ‘I love the city, but I love my worthless hometown even more.'” The band has previously played at EKKO, but now the frontman is coming solo to De Kromme Haring as the opening act for J.E. Sunde.
