Lukas Graham Lukas Graham on LP
Lukas Graham, 2016's breakout artist, is already topping charts worldwide with single "7 Years." Hailing from Christiania, an autonomous, artistic community in the center of Copenhagen, Graham developed his natural talent for honest and gritty songwriting and quickly captivated the European audience, earning widespread overseas acclaim.
Classically trained with the Copenhagen Boys' Choir, with a musical scope widened by his Irish folk roots and passion for hip-hop, Graham possesses a distinct, poetic ability to capture the full range of emotions in his music. This is showcased perfectly on lead single "7 Years," filled with Lukas' impeccable lyricism and infectious hooks, and already making huge global waves.
Known for a phenomenal live show, Lukas has played countless sold out shows and festival main stage slots alongside his bandmates - Mark "Lovestick" Falgren (drums), Magnús "Magnúm" Larsson (bass), and Kasper Daugaard (keyboard) childhood friends who play an integral role in both the songwriting process and the live performance. "7 Years" sets the stage for the release of Lukas Graham's self-titled North American debut, which will arrive in April 2016.
"Lukas Graham...writes neatly turned songs that merge the lilt of pop-soul with the quick cadences of hip-hop, and he sings about earnest striving that gets its deserved reward." - New York Times
