Mads Langer


Mads Langer has been likened to an amalgonation of John Mayer and Rufus Wainwright. With the ability to write epic, heart-wrenching songs and deliver them with his soulful voice, Mads Langer draws his audience close and befriends them. Mads Langer is a world-class singer-songwriter in waiting.


Mads Langer first played the piano that adorned his childhood home in a tiny Danish town called Skive. It is true to say that he was bitten by the music bug before he could take his first step. It wasn't just the ebony & ivory of the piano's decor that fascinated him, there was also his fathers vast record collection that lured Mads like a siren where he would plunder through and sing along with his unique fresh, soulful voice that would effortlessly switch between smooth and rough tones. ”I knew from the start that music would be a vital element in my life" says Mads. Something else was awaiting him and and it came in the form on an acoustic guitar, the instrument that would help him carve out his songs, and this guy has songs. Dedication to music drove Mads to pack his bags, right after finishing secondary school, and head to the big city, Copenhagen.
Having conquered his native Denmark, an achievement he talks with with great pride after five years of hard graft and has achieved great success with his critically acclaimed previous albums 'Attention Please' and 'Mads Langer', the 25 year old Dane has now set his sights on the big wide world, basing himself in London to focus on an international career. Says Langer "I love to let my music take me where it may and play to as many people as possible. If I had lived in the faraway past, I would surely have been a wandering troubadour who braved the highways and byways of the realm, telling tales through my songs, about the breezes and storms, and singing heartfelt love songs to the beautiful noble ladies in their unreachable towers. Anyway, I like to think that I live my life like a modern troubadour. Where it leads, time will tell. There are countless stories to tell, and I want to tell some of them through my music.", songs about broken hearts, isolation and dreams versus realities ”A minute doesn't go by, not even a second, without a stream of new musical ideas or familiar phrases running through my head. My songs spring from that source.”
Langer's live performances are noted for leaving many in the audience in awe of his commanding performance and singing abilities. Treating the audience as his friends, Mads will take you up and down and through the intimate journeys threaded throughout his melodic songs. He's obviously doing something right as he is currently undertaking a sold-out tour where he will play to 8,000 people.
