Profile Anders Frandsen started his career as an actor and later he was one of the tv host in a famous morning show at a local tv-channel. Beside the tv work he was also having a career as singer also. In 1991 he came to fame when he won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (the Danish national final for the Eurovision Song Contest) with the song “Lige der hvor hjertet slår”, composed by Michael Elo.  In 1992 he released his self titled debut album. At this album he had worked together with Michael Elo (leadsinger from De 5) who produced the album and wrote 4 of the songs. Another team mate from the band “De 5″ the guitarist Torben Johansen wrote 2 songs and also plays on the album. 

Those who’ve heard the two brilliant DE 5 albums will know what this means qualitiy wise. They were called the danish TOTO in the mid 80’s and this is also what it sounds like one some tracks here. Frandsen got a fantastic classically trained voice and sings half the songs in english and half in danish. On other songs it’s pure old school David Foster Westcoast sound with fantastic guitar solos and a production that sounds a million bucks. Just listen to the awesome opener “Abent Hav” – what a sound… it makes you believe that the whole Toto band is featured here, or the uptempo song “Mit Klaver” that comes along with great guitar fills and a mood lifting chorus. “Baby I Want You” is a typical David Foster-like ballad while the catchy “Har Du Held Kaerlighed?” brings some Parber/ Kerstein to my mind….Unfortunately Andrers passed away on 1st  January of 2012.
