Lukas Graham stunned last week with a breathtaking performance of “7 Years” on CONAN. Though this was his debut TV appearance in the U.S., Lukas Graham has already enjoyed massive success back home in Scandinavia, where his raw and personal songwriting quickly captivated Europe and is now sparking worldwide attention. The single has been streamed an incredible 60 million times since its global release and is earning over 600,000 listens in the U.S. alone each week. An impeccable lead single, “7 Years” introduces the singer’s distinct blend of soul, pop, and alternative and sets the stage for the release of Lukas Graham’s full-length U.S. debut, coming in 2016.
Born and raised in Christiania, an autonomous, artistic neighborhood in the center of Copenhagen, Lukas Graham got his musical start with the Copenhagen Boys’ Choir when he was just eight years old. That classical training, combined with his Irish folk roots, passion for hip-hop, and natural poetic abilities allows Lukas to create a distinct musical style that comes alive through the stories he tells, with his engaging lyrics always at the core.
