Bio

Danish Tobias Elof has in few years gone from a life as a hopeful young musician to have achieved more than most - touring Europe, Asia and Hawaii, won Danish Championship in Folk Music, nominated for two Danish Music Awards and admitted to the Academy as the first in world - with the 'ukulele in his hands.

 

Nordic 'ukulele sound

Tobias Elof began to play the 'ukulele when he was 8 years old - at that time because the fingers were not big enough for bass. Although his fingers grew, the desire to play the distinctive instrument, only increased and today it has become his livelihood.

 

Elof has his musical roots planted in Scandinavian folk music. With virtuosity, intimacy and passion he challenges the genre by experimenting with the music and adjusting it to the 'ukulele.

 

The 8th of June Elof will be releasing his long-awaited debut album as a solo artist. The album title, 'Ukulele Meditation, presents a way of playing the instrument that takes you to a to a new dimension. The album has come together over 5 years where Elof has collaborated with many artist like the duo Bremer/McCoy, vocal quartet Ã…kervinda, and sound engineer Jonas Nakel, whom are releasing the album on Toneart Rec.

It's the sound of the forest, it's the sound of crystal clear stars on a winter night, it's the sound of ear sharpening melodies, it's the sound of flow, it's the sound of being present in the moment, it's the sound of a deep breath.

 

A unique live performer

Tobias Elof has performed at venues and festivals in places such as Sweden, the UK, Estonia and Hawaii and has shared the stage with some of the world's biggest 'ukulele icons - including the Hawaiian legend Kimo Hussey and Canadian James Hill.

 

In addition to the international success, Tobias Elof also frequently visit Danish venues across the country, and is known for his intimate and charming liveperformances.
