Born near near Copenhagen in Denmark, Nikolaj Bjerre has studied drumming since he was seven.

He started playing with bands from the age of eight performing live gigs. In his twenties, Nikolaj moved to London and worked as a session drummer with many major artists and bands including Lamb, the Ian Siegal band, Ella Eyre, Andrea Corrs, Younger Brother, Heather Nova and Z-star. In the meantime, between tours, he is busy recording, producing and writing music for TV.

Nikolaj is an accomplished musician and drummer whose skills include production, programming and writing. He is featured on major labels and independent releases. Nikolaj is renowned for embracing all styles: from organic and rootsy to cutting-edge electronic.
