Sondre Lerche Auditioned for “Spider-Man” Musical

The impending Spider-Man musical (Spider-Man Turn on the Dark) makes me giggle with delight. It seems like possibly the worst and best idea I’ve ever heard.

Sondre Lerche’s Secret Inspiration: Alex P. Keaton?

Sondre Lerche Gets a Little Movie Magic

I was so thrilled when I heard that Sondre Lerche was coming out with a new album in October. I was even more thrilled when I heard that the album was actually the soundtrack for a major motion picture by Peter Hedges (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape) called Dan in Real Life, starring Steve Carrell and …
