N°118 He is tall.Nú Ninja Helga Mjöll
He is tall. is the artistic name of a Copenhagen based singer-songwriter Troels Thorkild Sørensen. Born in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1993 into a family of sport enthusiasts, Sørensen did not discover his passion for music until he was around 15 years of age. At that point, he learned that musical expression was a great tool as an emotional outlet, and in many ways an easy and natural way for him. Later he learned the guitar, which is his main instrument today.
First single released by He is tall. was the song Open your mouth pt.2 in 2018. Since then, four more singles have followed, the latest one New York was released just this Thursday. The song is a tribute to a North-America trip that the artist took when he was young and the friendships he made in his twenties. Legendary artists like Harry Nilsson, Schott Walker provided the musical inspiration, as well as Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver.
The artistic name He is tall. comes from Sørensen’s feeling of playing his music. He has said it makes him feel like the tallest man on earth. This year, he has played a lot of live shows around Denmark, including festivals, and later this fall he is set to tour Germany for the first time. Moreover, a debut EP is expected to be released in October, so keep a close eye on He is tall. on social media and on music platforms.
