Select Captain is the alter-ego for singer, songwriter and guitarist Kristian Gaarskjær. With a fondness for the 50’s beat-poets, the American songwriting tradition and Scandinavian melancholy, The Captain takes the listener on a trip through a catchy, yet fragile musical universe, with an emphasis on melody and songwriting in a soundscape of acoustic instruments and ambient reverbs.
With 10 new songs, Kristian Gaarskjær is now ready with his third album under the moniker Select Captain. October 12, 2018 will see the release of the album dubbed “Off To Save The World” on his own label Soundchest Records.
"Off To Save The World" is a mature album with well-crafted songs that will grasp you from the first listen.
Over the past 4 years Select Captain has released 3 albums and 1 EP. Played more than 150 concerts with his band and solo, supporting acts like George Ezra, The Lone Bellow, Ed Harcourt, Jonny Lang, Sivert Høyem, Joan Shelley and many more along the way.
