Growing up in Christiania – an autonomous artists’ enclave in the center of Copenhagen with no cars, streetlights, or police, and few personal luxuries – shaped singer Lukas Graham Forchammer’s dynamic sound. “Our scope away from home was so huge,” he says. “Instead of making up a pretty little love story about some girl I like, I end up singing about my boys in jail and how I feel. It’s easier for me to be honest about who I am than to start making up some fairytale.” 
For the debut album, that honesty is centered largely on remembering his father, as Lukas turned to his writing as a means to cope with and understand that loss. The result is 11 tracks filled with emotion, powered by Lukas’ soulful vocals and pop melodies but with his engaging and heartfelt lyrics always at the core.  
From his early Scandinavian success to what has rapidly become widespread acclaim across the globe, Lukas is always alongside his “boys” in the band – Mark “Lovestick” Falgren (drums), Magnús “Magnúm” Larsson (bass), and Kasper Daugaard (keyboard) – childhood friends who play an integral role in both the musical process and the live performance. See below for the list of confirmed U.S. tour dates to see Lukas Graham and his band live this spring.
