Read more about Van Norden's EDM projects:
“Van Norden is clearly crafting something truly special. With lush production and a strangely epic quality to the music, and lyrics with a few layers of complexity. Love At First Sight is a beautiful tune ... Van Norden is crafting tunes at the absolute highest level, truly EDM for the thinking man.”

“This guitarist and songwriter has showed his readiness to branch out in recent years, but few in the folk world could have predicted his move to pop-driven EDM and house. With his very first single, Love at First Sight, this new producer has shown his electronic chops with no mistaking”.

“Van Norden could easily be a new master of EDM. While he normally hails from our neighbors in the Great White North, Norden is much more an LA folk star at heart. You can hear this in the radio edit of “Love At First Sight”, as hidden among all of the delicious electronic beats is a cautious yet well crafted acoustic guitar. You just have to listen for it.”
