Peder Losnegård comes from a gospel/pop-background with a family in music and stumbled into hiphop by accident. He was born in Haugesund on the west coast of Norway and was heavily influenced by his fathers gospel-music. From a very early age, he was known as a talented drummer, but around the age of 10, he started making beats on his dads computer and listened to artists like Kanye West. The sudden change in style happened when an american student (Cody Berkland) moved to Peder's hometown for a short while and was a great influence on him.
The music industry quickly noticed the young talent and through talentshows and concerts around the country, he started to make a name for himself. The first break happened when he performed on a the show "Lydverket" on national tv and signed with Universal Music Norway not long after that. Thing kept rolling and Lido got to be the warm-up act for artists like Snoop Dogg, Bun-B, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Clipse, Madcon and many more.
"LidoLido is the biggest talent to come out of Norway in a long time. His sound is completely current and completely original."
Lido is a selfproclaimed "Good Guy". His lyrics are not explit and he brings a positive point of view into a genre many people concider to be "negative". The most characteristic thing about Lido must be his musical understanding and melodic way of rapping/singing, which makes him appeal to a wide and diverse audience within all ages.
To this very day, Lido does all his own production and writing; a true one-man-band. He also does alot of remixes and production for other artists. His debut album "Pretty Girls & Grey Sweaters" is to be released on Universal Music Norway on February 3rd 2012.
