Kygo, 24 year old Norwegian global sensation, is the biggest breaking star in the world right now. What’s more, he is on course to become the fastest artist ever to reach one billion streams.

His current single ‘Firestone’ featuring Australia’s Conrad Sewell, is a permanent fixture in the UK top ten and has already gone Silver with over 200,000 sales. His forthcoming single ‘Stole The Show’ is already a global top 20 hit.

Earlier this month, Kygo closed the Mojave tent at Coachella both weekends.

He has been streamed over 225 million times worldwide on Spotify and is streamed 3 million times a day. He’s been top 3 UK Shazam for the last month and does a Radio 1 live lounge next Tuesday with guest vocalists Conrad and Parson James.

Kygo first rose to prominence with a remix of the Ed Sheeran track ‘I See Fire’ having previously remixed Coldplay’s ‘Midnight’ after being asked by Chris Martin.

Born in Bergen, Norway, Kygo is an accomplished DJ, producer and is a classically trained artist who has played the piano since he was six. A new EP will be released this summer, with an album coming in the autumn.
