Henrik Lindstrand has managed to compile an equally impressive and eclectic resume, in which a lengthy and diverse post-conservatory list of sideman positions lead to him being adopted into Danish act Kashmir, one of Scandinavia ́s most prominent and acclaimed bands with seven albums to their name.
During his tenure in Kashmir and until the band ́s recently initiated hiatus, Henrik worked with seminal profiles such as Tony Visconti, Andy Wallace, David Bowie and Lou Reed, all the while maintaining a career as a composer for television and cinema.
Henrik’s work as a proven composer for film and television picked up speed in 2007 where he did the score for Zentropa feature film “Ekko”.
He was nominated for Danish Cinemas prestigious Robert award for his efforts and has since composed for animation, commercials, documentaries, short films and an ever-expanding list of feature films from directors such as Ole Christian Madsen, Jesper W. Nielsen and Anders Morgenthaler.
A piano player since age 3 and an accomplished multi instrumentalist, Henrik is a graduate from the Rhythmic Conservatory in Copenhagen to where he relocated from his native Sweden in 1994.
Apart from gaining him a degree, the school also served as a gateway into the Scandinavian music scene where Henrik laid down the groundwork for his career, lending his skills to a multitude of acts as a studio musician, live player and string arranger.
More often than not, Lindstrand ́s live and studio work would push him towards multi-instrumental roles which called for an alternative approach avoiding the simple and the obvious, seeking out abstract sonics.
In 2017 he released his debut album “Leken” named after the forest lake he grew up nearby. In 2019, Lindstrand was signed to iconic label One Little Indian and his second album “Nattresan” was released and followed up by selected solo concerts in Denmark, UK and Germany.
