Lukas Graham - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Lukas Graham
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.
Daye Jack - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Daye Jack
While old folks lament the younger generation's disappearing attention span, 19-year-old Daye Jack is busy creating album-length experiences that overflow with vibrant soul and acute focus. If Daye Jack's independently released Hello World is his broad introduction, then his forthcoming Soul Glitch further explores the depth and nuances of an artist beyond his years. Due June 30th on Warner Brother Records, Soul Glitch is a soulful showcase of the songwriter's sage wisdom and remarkable versatility. Be it snarling raps or soaring melodies, the hip-hop vocalist continually finds new ways to express his exploration of both the world's oldest truths and its newest technologies.

Pronounced dah-yay, Daye Jack was born in Nigeria before moving to Atlanta at the age of six. He credits the slow, soulful vibe of Atlanta's suburban sprawl for the genesis of his sound, but also fled its boundaries the minute he was of age. Daye's father, who spent his own formative years in San Francisco, always counseled his son to escape Georgia. New York City became the destination — by way of Computer Science studies at NYU — and blossomed into an inspiration for Daye's music.

Fascinated by how the destruction of data sets can warp technological worlds, Daye Jack has embarked on a journey to apply the same distortion to hip-hop, pop and soul music. His debut mixtape, Hello World, collected his first four years of material, taking its name from a computer program and introducing Daye Jack to the world. The Village Voice said his "experimental hip-hop will make you swoon" and Complex said he "has no trouble standing out," while The Fader announced that Daye Jack "defies the traditional boundaries of genre." Even as major labels came calling, he focused instead on his studies at NYU and the inspiration provided by his first winter in an actual winter climate. The resulting Soul Glitch continues his quest to create worlds and listening experiences that demand top-to-bottom immersion — and finally became reason enough to put school on hold and focus solely on music.

It also became reason enough to leave New York and move to Los Angeles, where he's recording his debut album for Warner Brothers. Under the umbrella of Max Martin's MXM Publishing and Mike Elizondo's executive production, Daye Jack is expanding his craft under the tutelage of veterans with countless classic records and dozens of chart toppers. In truth, it doesn't matter who Daye Jack is working with or the auspicious number of years he's been alive, he aims to dirty soul music, warp hip-hop and create unforgettable pop music without ever compromising his ideals. Daye Jack's music will always be his, regardless of what the old folks think.
