Born in Copenhagen, moved away for 15 years, and then moved back again. Started playing music when I was 11 years old. Never really stopped. However, I got to admit that it wasn’t before a gig at The Bitter End in New York City in 2014 that I started taking my music serious, which is weird, because everyone else did long before I did myself. Re-discovered an old 1985 Phil Collins record at my parents place about a year ago. This kicked off Favor in a massive way. It was exactly the sound I’d been looking for. Bombastic drums, cheesy melodies, high pace songs and utter joy of music is what I found right there among my dad’s dusty records.

Favor, the neon-synth-pop ensemble led by Danish songwriter and performer, Jeppe Gade, made its debut with “Hole In The Heart” in October 2017. After his first live show supporting Norwegian pop star Sigrid, Favor now releases the contagious 2nd single “Slowly Dancing”. The music draws inspiration from pop influences of the 80es and has been referred to as “a contemporary lovechild between Phil Collins and Cyndi Lauper.”
Since January 2016, Favor has been writing and producing songs with playmates of a Copenhagen music collective. A gathering who all shared the passion for gated drums, Yamaha DX7 keyboard and melodic synth-pop compositions sharing vibes with artists such as Future Islands, Blood Orange, Ekkah and The 1975.
Danish P3-radio host, Mads Gundersen describes Favor like this:
“Favor is delicious synth-pop, that gives you an urge to change all your bills to cents and use them all at the nearest arcade. It’s positive, enlightening and to be heard in purple neon-light with a drink in your hand that you don’t know the name of, and it really doesn’t matter, cause you are going to spill it anyway when you are dancing”
Favor released the first single “Hole In The Heart” on October 13th.
Favor released his second single “Slowly Dancing” on January 26th.
He is planning to release an EP in April 2018.
