For the past 10 years, Jacob Bellens has been at the forefront of the Danish music scene earning a great reputation with duo-project Murder, fronting I Got You On Tape (see I Got You On Tape’s session here) along with several external collaborations. His signature is his strong, deeply emotional vocal performances, coupled with highly poetic lyrics and tightly calibrated musical arrangements. He recently released his debut solo album ‘The Daisy Age’ receiving critical acclaim in Danish media. On a blustery/chilly Saturday morning in Copenhagen he came and performed lead single ‘Heart Of Africa’ from ‘The Daisy Age’ and also gave us a sneak preview of things to come with two new tracks, ‘Another Lung’ and ‘Northern Lights’.

Schultz and Forever’s lead man Jonathan Schultz captured the attention of the Danish media in 2011 after releasing his debut EP ‘Odd Stories‘. He continued to build hype by playing popular sets at SPOT festival and across Denmark, in May 2012 he was placed number 1 on the highly regarded DR P3 ‘Det Elektriske Barometer’. With mature gruff vocals comparable to The Tallest Man On Earth/Mumford and Sons/Dylan and song writing credentials to match at only 18 years of age.
