Since their debut in 1997 (Spice of Life), the Norwegian trio D’Sound has had an impact on the Norwegian & International pop-jazz scene. The band’s line up of drums (Kim Ofstad), bass (Jonny Sjo) and vocals (Simone) and their various musical backgrounds (jazz, gospel/r&b, singer/songwriter) led the band to create their own distinct pop-jazz sound.
Every album they’ve released (“Spice of Life” 1997, “Beauty Is A Blessing” 1998, “Talkin’ Talk” 2000, “Doublehearted” 2003, “My Today” 2005) contained a new interpretation of D’Sound’s current musical influences over time - be it acid jazz, drum’n’bass, R&B, etc. Still D’Sound consider themselves, first and foremost, to be a pop act and they’ve always focused on what they call “the good song”.
With the release of their latest CD “Starts and Ends” D’Sound emerges as a duo, now consisting of Simone and Jonny Sjo. More melodious than ever and a new interpretation of what D’Sound was, is and will always be – songs that will stick to your brain and move your heart! Produced by Jørn Dahl (Lene Marlin, The Corrs), the new album includes "How Could I Forget", "If You Dream", "All Of The Time", "Almost Was Never" plus a Philippine bonus track "We Live We Love".
