Erlend Bratland


Erlend Bratland is a chart-topping Norwegian emo pop singer who rose to fame in 2008 as the winner of the television talent show Norske Talenter (i.e. "Norway's Got Talent"). Born on October 27th 1991 in Kvinnherad, Norway, he won the second season of Norske Talenter at the young age of 16, and much was made of how his emo fashion sense (e.g. coloured hair, facial piercings, black clothing) contrasted sharply with his fairly conventional musical style.

Erlend Bratland is a chart-topping Norwegian emo pop singer who rose to fame in 2008 as the winner of the television talent show Norske Talenter (i.e. "Norway's Got Talent"). Born on October 27th 1991 in Kvinnherad, Norway, he won the second season of Norske Talenter at the young age of 16, and much was made of how his emo fashion sense (e.g. coloured hair, facial piercings, black clothing) contrasted sharply with his fairly conventional musical style. Upon signing a major-label recording contract with Sony BMG in the aftermath of this first-place finish on Norske Talenter, Bratland made his commercial debut in 2008 with "Lost", a song written by Dutch pop singer Anouk.

A number one smash hit on the Norwegian charts, "Lost" was followed by another chart-topping hit, "Still Water". In the wake of these smash hits, Bratland released his full-length album debut, "True Colors", an English-language effort laden with well-known cover songs, among them Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box", Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors", Joni Mitchell's "River" and Queen's "Love of My Life". "True Colors" charted in the Norwegian albums Top Five for seven weeks and peaked at number two. After 5 years of self-imposed break from the singing career, Bratland was back in 2014 with two singles, "In My Head" and "Silent Sister". Sporting a new and tougher image, he's going to participate in Melodi Grand Prix, the Norwegian final for the Eurovision Song Contest, in March 2015. He's going to perform with the song "Thunderstruck", which he wrote with Swedish songwriters, Linnea and Joy Deb.
