Rules are meant to be broken, though we don't recommend using this as an excuse to a Judge.
However, we're about to break one of our own rules by including a debut single by duo Luxe For Fun - despite neither artist/musician hailing from these Scandinavian shores!
In our defense, your honor, their music was recorded in the excellent DeltaLab Studio, Copenhagen.
Danish singer Kamilia Amélie releases her new 5 track EP Devil which features a collaboration with Swedish rapper Lazee on the title track Devil.
Young people today only listen to what’s ‘hot’ in the pop charts and dream of being the next Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus. Perhaps we’ve all been guilty of thinking like this, but maybe it’s time to think again. In 2012, five young people between the ages of 16 and 19 crossed musical paths and decided to form a band called ‘Naked Ivy’, and the result gives us real hope for the future.
We last saw Amanda Wium giving a scintillating performance at Soulful Tuesdays at Mojo’s Blues Bar earlier this year. Clearly this young Danish singer has started to find her voice as we listen to her on two videos recently posted.
The first is a soulful teaser of her forthcoming single 'Energy'.
The brilliant debut single ‘Windy’ is taken from Scarlet Pleasures forthcoming album and has been immediately picked up by Danish Radio P3. Despite being classed as ‘ScaniPop’ we feel there’s a lot of soul in Scarlet Pleasure, especially in lead singers Emil Goll's vocals.
Now signed to Copenhagen Records (Veronica Maggio, Lukas Graham, Bo Kaspers Orkester) we’ll be listening closely to how their sound develops as they inevitably grow in popularity.
2400Sessions are small acoustic music experiences where known and unknown artists are asked to perform in a small intimate setting - a humble, private apartment in the postcode 2400, in Copenhagens Northwest neighborhood.
Danish soul singer Jonas Rendbo recently paid them a visit accompanied by a string quartet with stunning results.
From 5 - 7 September 2013 Scandinaviansoul.com and Horsens Ny Teater, a modern theatre in Horsen, near Billund in Denmark, present the first "Scandinavian Soul" festival, which brings together more than 120 young musicians from all over Scandinavia.
“I also thought they'd made a mistake when I read the event start time was 24:00,” says vivacious, 5’11” singer Alex from Okapii. We are strolling along the busy streets of Copenhagen together on her way to do a sound check at the venue KB18, in Copenhagen's own meatpacking district.
I’d been looking forward expectedly to Saturday night.
No, tonight I wouldn’t be out showing my dancing skills (which, by the way, have deserted me years ago) instead I sat with a cup of Coffee resting beside me, a pen and paper poised, and my phone fully charged. Tonight I’d be interviewing the compelling Danish Singer Sahra da Silva whose EP 'Sahra da Silva and the Jagged Soul' has been extremely well received here on Scandinaviansoul.com.
As she answers my call I hear her voice float in my ear and it’s distinct but not as raspy as one might expect. We began by discussing her name, background and influences.
