Jens Lysdal

Singer, guitarist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Jens Lysdal was born in Sweden by danish parents. Following a year in New Orleans, USA the family moved to Denmark.

His songs and albums - unaffected by trends - are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners.
His style is often subtle and poetic, but at the same time with an unmistakable sharpness in playing and writing.

Rooted in scandinavian and american folkmusic, he covers a wide range of genres that he often mixes - always using it for making lyrical and musical points.

What makes him stand out as a performer is the combination between his songs and voice (he is often referred to as “The danish Leonard Cohen”) and his high level as an instrumentalist - the focus shifting between the songs and his guitar- playing, reinforcing each other.

Nationally and internationally he has received tremendous reviews and is regarded one of scandinavias top guitarplayers.
His 2014 album “Easy Heart”, was nominated “Best Folk Album” in Germany and in 2015 his song “All right here” was nominated for an american Grammy in 2015 with the album “Nocturne Diaries” by Eliza Gilkyson – an album on which he also plays guitar.

When he recently re-released an updated version of his debut- album "A matter of time", danish press called it: "One of the most solid works in newer danish popular musichistory".
