GRAMMY Award-nominated multiplatinum Lukas Graham will embark on a 2019 U.S. tour, in support of the forthcoming album, 3 (The Purple Album). Hailing from Christiania, an autonomous, artistic community in the center of Copenhagen, Lukas 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, Lukas 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: it's been streamed an incredible 100 million times worldwide since its release, is rapidly climbing the charts globally, and is propelling this Danish artist into the spotlight as more listeners connect with his soulful vocals and raw talent. 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 March 25, 2016.
With a resume of experience dating back to a very young age, Lauren has developed into a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and performer. Originally from Gaylord, Michigan, she has been performing in front of audiences since the age of 7. Several local performances in her hometown led to many years of traveling across Northern Michigan with a band, performing classic country hits. Those shows allowed her the opportunity to open for acts including: Lonestar, Randy Travis, Confederate Railroad, and Bill Anderson.
She began songwriting in middle school after getting her first guitar. She started posting videos of original songs and covers on Youtube while in high school, gaining significant views worldwide. Later as a student at the University of Michigan, Lauren focused more on songwriting but managed to keep up with local performances opening for Gloriana and Thompson Square. After graduating in the spring of 2013 with her Bachelors of Science in Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience, she put her plans of attending dental school aside. She spent a few months in Chicago after graduation with opportunities to record original and commercial material, but Nashville became home in early 2014. Lauren appeared on Season 12 (2017) of the hit NBC show The Voice, finishing as runner up. Her sultry voice and heartfelt vocals helped her earn this honor, and she's looking forward to sharing her new music on tour soon.
