Thomas Buttenschøn is a Danish alternative singer/songwriter who made his debut in 2006 with the hit single "Fantastiske Mandag." His musical style is diverse, ranging from pop and rock to jazz and blues, and he generally performs live with a full band in which he plays guitar and sings. His music reflects his youth and an indie mentality, the latter in spite of his commercial success. Born on March 22, 1985, in Zambia, a country in southern Africa, Buttenschøn was raised in Jutland, Denmark. At 21 years old he released his debut single, "Fantastiske Mandag," on the independent label Noob Factory. The song became a hit single and was followed later in the year by the full-length album Fantastiske Mandag (2006), which reached number 12 on the Danish albums chart. "Præsident I USA" is another popular song featured on the album. In 2008 Buttenschøn reached Top Ten success with his second album, Billeder af Min Baggård, and its lead single, "Smukkere End Smuk." Around this same time he released a three-track demo EP, Sovekammer Demoer II (2008), and teamed with producer Mathias Lyhne to form the duo Lad De Små Børn Lege and release Der Er Noget Galt I Himlen (2008), a four-track EP on the label Rust Music. ~ Jason Birchmeier
