William Torp (DK)

He has been hailed as a new, promising talent on the Danish music scene, and it’s not empty talk.  26 year-old William Torp grew up in Aarhus, but moved to Copenhagen some years ago. He has made a couple of singles, but it is his autumn 2022 EP release Still U’r All I’m Thinking About that has garnered attention. The EP is a collection of personal songs by a songwriter well-equipped with a guitar, a good singing voice and some well-honed lyrics. The EP’s title song was inspired by the TV programme Alene i vildmarken (Alone in the Wilderness), and in an interview, William Torp explained that the TV programme ‘lit the campfire’ for the song. William Torp claims folk and roots music as his inspiration, with a bit of indie rock thrown in: he mentions names like Bon Iver, Big Chief and Fleet Foxes. He has an audience, and has played several sell-out shows in early 2023. The Soundvenue magazine has noticed William Torp as well, and listed him in Breaking Sound 2023: the 15 most promising new Danish musicians.
