Jens Lysdal was born in Sweden by danish parents. Following a year in New Orleans 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.
Both as a writer and instrumentalist, he covers a wide range of genres - that he often mixes - always using it for making lyrical and musical points. When performing - unlimited by genre - he draws from all sorts of influences and is comfortable with whatever that takes him.
Nationally and internationally he has received tremendous reviews for his songs and recordings and
is one of scandinavias top guitarplayers. 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".
Both his newer and older songs are frequently played on air and are featured in numerous danish and international films.
He has scored several films himself and lately worked with five-time Emmy-winner filmcomposer Jakob Groth ("The girl with the dragon tatoo") as vocalist and musician.
What makes him stand out as a performer is the combination between his songs and voice and his high level as an instrumentalist. Making his music and concerts unique - the focus shifting between the songs and his guitar-playing, reinforcing each other.
