The Chairman – Danish singer/songwriter Lucas Berner – releases ‘Animate’, a soundly emotional, modern love song, which is out on 10th March via Danish Music Entertainment (DK).
Hi ’The Chairman’, how are you today?
I’m great! Busy trying to finish my record, but all good.
Please introduce yourself and let us know what you play.
My name’s Lucas Berner, I write, play and live lovesongs.
What’s ‘Animate’ all about?
Over the last couple of years I’ve developed this very real fear of ending up alone. I’m scared that I’ll put too much effort into pursuing my professional goals and ultimately missing out on what really matters. For the past year I’ve been trying to balance it, but there’s still a long way to go. ‘Animate’ is a fast-forward scenario, to a life where I’ve achieved those goals, but am left alone and lonely.
Growing up, was music always your main passion?
Very much so! I’ve indulged in a few other creative fields, but music has always come around and drawn me back in. Now, there’s no way out, and I absolutely love it.
If you could write any other genre, what kind of artist would you want to become?
I’m very happy where I am artistically, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
If you could date any artist, current or not who would that be and why?
Flo Morrissey! I’ve been head over heels for her since I discovered ‘Pages of Gold’ a few years back..
Describe your sound in 3 words.

Finally what can we expect from The Chairman in 2017?
I’m releasing my new album, ‘The Strange Life, worldwide around September 2017, and a bunch of singles leading up to that. Hopefully we’ll fill our Fall calendar with a bunch of shows and the summer with festivals around Denmark, Uk, US & Germany!
