Kygo Biography (Wikipedia)

Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (born 11 September 1991), better known by his stage name Kygo, is a Norwegian DJ, songwriter and record producer.

He garnered international attention with his December 2013 remix of the track "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran, and his March 2015 single "Firestone".

In late 2015, Kygo became the fastest artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify and by June 2016, he had reached 2 billion streams on Spotify.

Kygo has since released several singles, such as "Stole the Show", "Here for You", "Stay", "It Ain't Me", and a remix of "Higher Love" performed by Whitney Houston, all of which have debuted on several international charts. Kygo's debut album Cloud Nine was released on 13 May 2016.

He made history on 21 August 2016 at the 2016 Rio Olympics, when he became the first house music producer to perform at an Olympics closing ceremony.

In March 2018, Billboard ranked Kygo 3rd on its 2018 ranking of dance musicians titled Billboard Dance 100.

Kygo has studied piano since he was 6 years old and considers himself more of a pianist than a disc jockey. His music is generally around 100 beats per minute, compared to 128 beats per minute for traditional house music.
