Bio / Resumé
Struck’s passion for music goes back to his childhood. Struck grew up in a small town on the island of Falster. He quickly chose music over mopeds and at the age of ten he started his own band, The Silverstars. At the age of fifteen Struck hosted his own radio program at the local radio station dedicated to modern jazz, and the following years he played hundreds of live gigs featuring many genres such as surf music, rock ‘n’ roll etc.
Struck is a graduate from the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen. He has worked for more than ten years as a film composer scoring and supervising eight feature films, three national TV-drama series, and a large number of documentaries and short films.
Struck’s inadmissible talent has not only served the Danish film industry. For several years he was part of the hugely successful Danish rock band Swan Lee, with multi-platinum selling albums. Today, when he’s not composing for the movies, Struck is working on his own projects, as well-received Cours Lapin album, released in the UK and France or reinventing modern jazz with Thunderstrucks, nominated for the prestigious Nordic Music Award or the newly released album by Worn Out Sun.
Struck has been nominated for his score in ”Idealisten” in the category Best Electro-Acoustic in the prestigious Möet & Chandon Grand Scores 2016. The soundtrack is also nominated in the category “Best film score” at The Harpa Nordic Film Composer Award and for the Robert Prisen 2016 “Score Of The Year”.
