Simone Eriksrud – front singer of D’Sound 

Simone Larsen Eriksrud was born in Freiburg, Germany and raised in Volda from the age of nine. She started singing in bands when she was 13, and has a background in jazz, soul and pop. After high school she moved to Oslo, where she sang with The Dingleberries before she met Jonny and Kim. The trio began playing together the summer of 1993. The idea was to create melodic pop with jazz and funk inspired rhythms. Elements from groovy funk, acid jazz and modern dance music mixed with the trio’s penchant for the melodic, and from this arose a unique sound – a “sound”. They chose to name their band The Sound. The drummer, Ofstad, suggested a more eye catching spelling;- D’Sound. (ref.: Rockipedia )
In June 2018 Simone Eriksrud announced her departure from D’Sound.
