Much-loved and -respected band is out “to conquer the American market” much as they already have in their homeland…
Formed in 2011, lead vocalist Lukas Graham Forchhammer, a 27-year old product of “Freetown” Christiania, and the rest of the band – consisting of bassist Magnus “Magnum” Larsson, keyboardist Kasper Daugaard and drummer Mark “Lovestick” Falgren – possess superstar status back home with their latest release “Lukas Graham (Blue Album)”.
Signed to Warner Bros Records (US) in 2013, Danish born and bred Lukas Graham along with their producers Don Stefano & Morten Ristorp (Future Animals) are currently working on solidifying their soulful funk and pop sounds for a 2016 U.S. album release. (Their latest single, “7 Years” is currently #20 on Spotify’s Global Top 20 and Top 40 on ITunes downloads. In December 2015 they made their first U.S. television appearance on Conan (O’Brien) performing “7 Years” and on TeamCoco / Conan’s website, fans of the show unanimously voted “7 Years” as the best live performance on Conan for 2015. This was accompanied by a #3 placement on Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists for 10 straight weeks combined with a steady add throughout the United States on Triple A, hot adult contemporary, alternative, Sirius XM and other pop formats.)
Fans: they can be seen live on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night, January 27th.
