I am a Danish artist with always a guitar nearby me. I’m inspired by all kinds of music, but as bluesy elements always seem to sneak into the music I make, I guess that Contemporary Blues is the name of my genre.
In my career as a soloist, I have released three albums: the debut “Troels Skovgaard” from 2003, the double album “No Matter How Far I Go” from 2006 and “The Album – Songs of Life, Love and Lies” from 2013.
From these releases, several tracks have been played regularly over the years on Danish Broadcasting Corporation (Danmarks Radio). Also the newest released single “Wash My Blues Away” has found its way to Danish Radio’s playlists.
Internationally some of my songs have found their own ways to independent radiostations in countries like Japan, Australia, Finland, US and UK.
I have reached the final three times in two different international songwriting competitions. First time in 2007 at the legendary Finnish Lakeside Blues Festival in Järvenpää with the song “They talk too much“. Second and third time at the UK Songwriting Contest. In 2014 with the song “Me and Manhattan and You” in the category “Open” and in 2017 with the song “That open Door” in the category “Adult contemporary”.
