Spotlight: Søren Hansen

  

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Søren Hansen to the Museum’s intimate 200-seat Clive Davis Theater for an evening discussing his latest music, creative process, and more, with a performance to follow.

Søren Hansen, who co-founded platinum-selling alternative pop band New Politics, released five fan favorite records, and toured around the world for over a decade. Eventually, the vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer wound up in Nashville where he planted roots and carved out a lane for himself behind-the-scenes as a songwriter and producer, collaborating with a bevy of acts across genres. As he kept writing and recording music, he couldn’t help but hold on to certain tunes for himself. They felt a little too close to his heart as he reflected on the ups and downs of childhood, the loss of his mom, and how he got here. He fashioned those songs into his 2024 self-titled full-length debut album, Søren Hansen [ENCI Records].

“I never thought I would be on stage ever again,” he states. “Suddenly, I started getting the urge. I created some songs I really loved, and I was proud enough of this music to want to play it live. That was the whole reason for getting into this project—to process all of those thoughts. There were things I was sorry about and things I was happy about. Finally, there was a place I could put them. Even if it was merely a folder on my desktop, that was enough for me. It was incredible to go back and be an artist again.”

For Søren, music served as an anchor in the midst of a turbulent childhood in Denmark. By his high school graduation, he had lived in 13 different places and attended eight different schools. As the perennial “new kid,bullies often targeted him. In fifth grade, he received a small keyboard as a gift from the family of a friend. At 18-years-old, a guy in a bar approached him and said, “You look like a singer. A few beers later, he started singing alongside his new buddy and recognized his latent talent.

In the end, Søren is doing exactly what he what he’s meant to.

“I’ve come to a point where I’m proud of the person I’ve become,” he leaves in. “I’m able to tap into who Soren is. Nothing else really matters. A lot of the music come from a real place and a lot of hurts. I didn’t give up, no matter what though. I always get back on my feet and keep moving. That’s who I am today.”
