Posted Mon, 04 Sep 2017


For fans of... Honne, Shy Girls, Bruno Major, HUNTAR

“...a lucid, engrossing, and highly

personal piece of work."


- Clash



"... a track filled with impassioned soul and an uplifting grace."
- Gigslutz



Danish electro-pop artist Lucas Berner, AKA The Chairman has unveiled his latest single Masquarade In The Radio, taken from his lucid sophmore album The Strange Life, out 29th September 2017 via
Danish Music Entertainment (DK).

Masquerade In The Radio, combines elements of old school soul with electronic production, premiered on Fame Magazine and is now available to stream on The Chairman's Soundcloud page.



The Chairman has also released a lyric video to accompany the track which is available to view on his YouTube channel now.



Masquarde In The Radio follows the release of singles
Dandelions, which premiered on Gigslutz and Animate, with the video for the track premiering on Clash Magazine's website. This was Lucas’ first foray into the UK music scene garnering instant acclaim from the likes of Amazing Radio. The Chairman’s deep, affecting soulful vocal range is what marks him out from his contemporaries, evoking memories of singers from the smooth-soul era of R&B music such as Al Green, Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers. Elevated further by the grand sweeping electronic production, as well as the addition of gospel-like layers of backing vocals, The Chairman has produced another dreamily exquisite electro-pop single.

First introduced as a bedroom project, Lucas found writing music as a cathartic release from the anxiety and depression he suffers from and, along with producers Mathias Bang Madsen and Jakob Løkkegaard, has continued to expand and develop The Chairman’s sound year on year. His debut album 2064, was unveiled to critical acclaim in his native Denmark, with the record receiving a huge amount of national airplay. Now, having recently released three singles, and with The Strange Life due to drop later in September, The Chairman is aiming to continue to pick up even more recognition here in the UK and beyond.

The Strange Life by The Chairman is out on 29th September 2017 via Danish Music Entertainment (DK).

The Chairman releases new single ‘Animate’!

Posted Tue, 14 Mar 2017


For fans of... Honne, Shy Girls, Aquilo, Bon Iver

“...a lucid, engrossing, and highly

personal piece of work."
- Clash



"... an emboldening exercising exorcism of elation..." - Gigslutz


Originally starting out as a bedroom project by singer songwriter Lucas Berner, The Chairman has grown into something exponentially bigger than even Lucas could have imagined. Now, The Chairman has released his new single Animate via Danish Music Entertainment (DK).

The video for Animate premiered on Clash and is available to watch on YouTube.



You can also stream Animate via the DME Soundcloud page.



The Chairman has built up an impressive amount of recognition in his native Denmark having released the critically acclaimed debut album 2064. A huge amount of national airplay followed and, as a result, The Chairman’s music has seeped into the creative consciousness of the country. Lucas found writing music as a cathartic release from the chains of anxiety and depression, using the outlet to develop both on a personal and creative level. The result of this process is an emotive, deeply personal sound that anyone dealing with modern life, and the many obstacles we have to overcome, can relate to.

What marks The Chairman out from many of his contemporaries, such as Honne and Shy Girls, is his rich, soulful vocal range; a mature singing voice combining seamlessly with the slow, incessant beat and atmospheric, yet intimate, synth soundscapes, the depth and warmth enveloping you as you listen. Animate is a perfect example of what The Chairman has to offer and has the ability to resonate with a youthful, contemporary audience as well as seasoned music lovers.

Written exclusively by Lucas with the aid of producers Mathias Bang Madsen and Jakob Løkkegaard, Animate is the first track to be released from forthcoming album The Strange Life. Aiming for a busy 2017, The Chairman will follow Animate with the release of a second single in April before unveiling his second album after the summer’s festival season.

Animate by The Chairman is out now via Danish Music Entertainment (DK) and is available to stream on Spotify or buy from iTunes.
