N*GrandJean mixes pop with afrobeat into a unique kind of laid back singer-songwriter style which reflects Nikolaj Grandjean as a playful and curious person wanting to move borders.
Danish Nikolaj Grandjean has a musical past in the grammy nominated band Luke where Nikolaj began his musical career. He has also written songs for various Top 10 Danish artists such as Kenneth Bager, Thomas Troelsen and Marie Frank.
During recording with Luke on a mountainside in Brazil, Grandjean became quite handy with recording devices and with his close friend, the opera singer Mikkel Lomborg, by his side, Grandjean decided to start recording his own material. This partnership defined a radical change in Nikolaj Grandjean’s life and career.
N*GrandJean released his debut album in 2009 called “Carrying Stars”. “Heroes and Saints” from the debut album became a huge hit in Brazil and remained as Top 10 on the official sales chart for more than three months in 2009. During the summer of 2010, N*GrandJean played in front of 15,000 people in the Portuguese capital Lisboa.
N*GrandJean has released three albums, the last of which was released in 2012 called “Rivers and Oceans”.
