Simon Lynge, the Greenlandic singer/songwriter managed by L.A. based Yes Dear Ent. (Mike Gormley, Jolene Pellant) has broken through in the UK in a big way. After a year of touring with the likes of Morcheeba, The Secret Sisters and most recently a triumphant tour of Europe with Emmylou Harris, Lynge has had his new single "If You Go" added to the BBC Radio 2. The single is from his debut recording on the UK-based Lo Max Records, "The Future".
Picked personally by Ms. Harris for the tour, Lynge performed for over 23,000 fans and had Ms. Harris praising her new find from the stage. Dates included the Royal Festival Hall in London.
Lynge went from the Harris tour to be the first Greenlandic artist to play the famed Glastonbury Festival in the UK.
YDE will have Simon touring the U.S. in September before returning to headline dates in the UK and Scandinavia.
