Select Captain

Select Captain is the alter-ego for singer, songwriter and guitarist Kristian Gaarskjær. With a fondness for the 50’s beat-poets and the American songwriting tradition, The Captain takes the listener on a road-trip through a catchy, yet fragile musical universe, with an emphasis on melody and songwriting in a soundscape of acoustic instruments and ambient reverbs.

Since 2014 Select Captain has released two albums, an EP. Had 11 songs on national danish radio, and played more than 150 concerts in Denmark and Germany, solo and with his band.

Select Captain is working on his third album at the moment, and has already released two singles from it, where the song "If I Should Go" has reached more than a half million streams on Spotify.

Select Captain delivered a very intimate house concert in Anne's living room the other night - beside filling the room with lovely vibes he also shared some interesting stories about his music. He even demystified his Octopus icon - not that many knows about it so we all felt an extra little special :)

From the button of my heart I can highly recommend all to try a house concert with him!

Det var en sand fornøjelse at have Kristian på besøg! Han formåede at drage os alle ind i hans univers og hans nærvær og intimitet passede sig perfekt til en huskoncerts format.

Vi kan varmt anbefale alle at tage med Select Captain på en rejse gennem melankoliens verden!
