Lasse Matthiessen is a singer and songwriter living in Berlin and Copenhagen.
At times, he is sensitive and fragile, at times intense and forceful. The music of Lasse Matthiessen holds a distinct duality – fragility and wildness; a duality that can also be found in his voice. With his lightly melancholy songs, he creates a poetic universe that moves between the coordinates of slow motion, melancholy and sincerity. Lasse’s lyrics are imbued with wanderlust and melancholia and are conceived in a collage of impressions from books, text, others’ conversations, visits to bars and photography.
Lasses sophomore album ”Dead Man Waltz” is set to be released in fall 2011. Music from his debut album “Stray Dog” (2007) has been released in different countries, for instance in Austria on a Universal compilation with, among others, Elliott Smith, Rufus Wainwright, Beirut, Sufjan Stevens and Bright Eyes.
