Want to check out an international artist this summer? Swedish folk singer-songwriter Daniel Norgren is racking up the miles as he brings his tour to the United States and Canada for a limited number of shows starting at the end of July. Play the video above to watch a live performance of his new song "So Glad" and see what Norgren is like live in concert.

The tour, which stops in six cities for eleven shows, brings Norgren's international flavor and self-starting attitude to audiences on both the East and West Coasts. Norgren is remarkable because from start to finish, he has his hand in every aspect of his music career. According to his tour's press release, his label Superpuma Records is a label that he started and runs with his wife Petra Wester-Norgren and producer Pelle Nyhage. He's racked up a half-dozen albums on iTunes, the most recent being 2015's The Green Stone. And now he's bringing his music to live audiences in the United States, doing it his way.

There are two East Coast shows opening Daniel Norgren's 2018 tour: one at New York's The Bowery Ballroom on July 26 and a stop at Rhode Island's Newport Folk Festival on July 28. After one stop in Canada, the rest of his concert dates are on the West Coast. He starts in Los Angeles at the Teragram Ballroom on July 31, has a run of shows in San Francisco including multiple dates at Pickathon, and finishes with back to back nights at Seattle's The Tractor Tavern. That means there are only select areas and a limited number of dates where audiences can see Norgren live this year, so you don't want to miss out on the opportunity.

That's because while Daniel Norgren may hail from Sweden, his music has a decidedly American bent to it. He's a storyteller not unlike the great American folk artists and brings his own perspective on the American culture through song. In his live shows, audiences will hear a unique blend of both the European and American music scenes, and that doesn't happen every day. Play the video above to sample Daniel Norgren live, then experience it for yourself this summer.
