Born and raised in Bergen, Norway, Lerche was inspired by the music he heard emanating from his older sibling's bedrooms – be it A-ha, or classic rock. Inspired, he picked up the guitar at the age of 8, and as a teenager performed at open mics at the club where his sister worked. Before his 16th birthday, he was signed to Virgin/EMI. "I had to start singing to get all these songs out there," he says. "No one else was going to!
Among the fans of Lerche's work was director Peter Hedges, who was looking for someone to provide music for his 2007 film Dan in Real Life -- someone to be hisCat Stevens (Harold and Maude) or Simon & Garfunkel (The Graduate). He chose Lerche, and the soundtrack featured a mix of songs from his back catalog and some newly recorded tracks. [Roxanne Blanford & Tim Sendra, All Music Guide]
