Originally formed in 2009 by bassplayer and composer Jens Mikkel, I Think You're Awesome dove into an indiejazz ocean, combining afrobeats, country-licks, free improv, contemporary classical music and pop in a thrilling mix.


Their first LP Løft Mig Op Så Jeg Kan Nå from 2014 was followed by Books & Books Live in 2016 and Kiss Your Darlings & The Acoustic Kiss Your Darlings EP in 2018. All releases have achieved massive airplay in danish national radio P8 Jazz and helped the band sell out concerts throughout all of Denmark. They have performed on the Copenhagen and Aarhus Jazz Festivals, played live on national television, collaborated with among many others Aarhus Jazz Orchestra, Danish Radio BigBand, danish trombone-legend Ole Fessor Lindgren, saxophone-master Christian Vuust and bigband-arranger-wizard Signe Bisgaard. All in all they are one of the most exiting bands to emerge from the vibrant danish jazz scene within the last 10 years.
