Lukas Graham, award-winning Danish artist poised for global crossover success, is marking his official U.S. debut with single "7 Years." 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.
