It’s hard to not make comparisons between the music of Ed Sheeran and the band Lukas Graham – there’s something raw and real about the stories they tell in their songs. But Lukas Graham frontman Lukas Forchhammer (Graham was his dad’s middle name) is pretty insistent he’s not a Danish Ed Sheeran.
In an interview with ABC Radio News, he made a point of trying to get people to stop making the comparisons.
“I don’t mind Ed Sheeran but I wouldn’t want to be compared to a guy that builds his song around a guitar, since we do not have a guitar in our band,” he points out. “Great songs, but no thank you. We’re somethin’ different!”
Fair enough, Lukas!
Check out this great live performance from Lukas and the boys of their latest North American single Mama Said from last night’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
