You might know him for his 10 year long relationship as the guitarist for Glenn Hughes, but the mid forty Dane SOREN ANDERSEN is much more.
Producer, co-owner of famed Medley Studios in Copenhagen, ambassador for world class equipment like TC Electronic, Yamaha Guitars and Line 6 and of course playing the six strings with a bunch of other great musicians.
SOREN ANDERSEN releases the first single and video from the upcoming solo album today.
“City Of Angels” was filmed in… well, L.A., of course. On the 4th of October Soren Andersen’s new solo-album “Guilty Pleasures” will see the light of day worldwide through Mighty Music on LP, CD and digital.
The album features guest appearances from, among others, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Glenn Hughes, Marco Mendoza and fellow Dane Ida Nielsen (Prince). The sunsoaked “City of Angels” is a fitting first single, about his beloved Los Angeles with a music video shot around Venice Beach and Hollywood. The video can be seen below or in one of our official press partners for it’s premiere:
The list of people Soren Andersen have worked with include Mike Tramp (ex-White Lion), Marco Mendoza and Tommy Aldridge (ex-Whitesnake / Thin Lizzy), Joe Lynn Turner (ex-Rainbow), Pretty Maids, The Dead Daisies, The Answer, Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), Eric Martin and Billy Sheehan (MR. Big), Artillery, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Phil Campbell (ex-Mötorhead), Electric Guitars, Jesper Binzer (D:A:D).
His work as producer and guitarist on the Glenn Hughes album “Resonate” made more people take notice of the brilliant Danish guitar player. For instance the maestro Joe Satriani who had this to say to the music site Music Aficionado: “I’ve been listening to this record a lot. The songs go by and I go, “Wow, listen to that!” This guitarist is somebody I don’t know who’s also the co-producer, Soren Andersen, and man, he’s so good. It’s always cool when you hear somebody new who really impresses you. […] A guy like Soren Andersen is totally into the future. His playing is very natural-sounding, and he manages to perform to the songs while still putting in some crazy textures. His choice of notes is interesting—every time I put the record on, I go, “Hey, I didn’t hear that before.” I love when an album does that to me. Glenn has always played with great guitarists, and he’s got another one with Soren Andersen.”
