Singer/songwriter - got his first guitar at the age of 9.
Started classic guitar lessons at the local music school in Helsingør, about an hour’s drive north of Copenhagen.
“My interests now lie much more in the synthesizer than the guitar. I feel it gives me much more room in which to be creative. There is a certain nerdy aspect to synthesisers, especially the older analogue ones from the 70’s and 80’s – the ones where you manually have to turn all these big knobs to make the sounds. But then you can do so much to this music once you then get it onto a computer.
When I was younger I wanted to be like Slash from the Guns & Roses – everybody wants to be that sexy. But with time I have mellowed and I’m much more in my own skin being the nerdy type on the synthesiser or Rhodes. The good thing is I am now part of three bands which means I have three different ways in which I express my work.
In My French Friend I am the singer and guitarist. Fabrice Jacobsen is my other half in this band. It’s dark pop slash indie pop. Our first EP is called ‘1366’ and will be available on idiot disc records and also on Spotify and Wimp by May 2015.
The Late Bloomers is my second band, straight indie, I’m on the synthesiser. Then finally I have a new faster 70’s beat band called The Tennis Club which is a new project I started with songwriter Krisoffer Blom.
Come take a listen."
