Kygo in June 2020
|Birth name||Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll|
|Born||11 September 1991|
Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (born 11 September 1991), better known by his stage name Kygo (Norwegian: [ˈkỳːɡuː]), is a Norwegian DJ, songwriter, and record producer. He garnered international attention with his December 2013 remix of the track "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran and his December 2014 single "Firestone". In late 2015, he became the fastest artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify, and by June 2016, he had reached 2 billion streams on Spotify.
Kygo has since released several singles, such as "Stole the Show", "Here for You" and "Stay" in 2015, "It Ain't Me" in 2017 and a 2019 remix of "Higher Love" performed by Whitney Houston, all of which have debuted on several international charts. His debut album, Cloud Nine, was released on 13 May 2016.
Kygo became the first house music producer to perform at an Olympics closing ceremony on 21 August 2016 at the 2016 Rio Olympics. In March 2018, Billboard ranked Kygo 3rd on its 2018 ranking of dance musicians titled Billboard Dance 100. In 2018, he was ranked 32 on DJ Mag's top 100 DJs of the world, and in October 2019 he was ranked 42.
Kygo's stage name is derived from the first 2 letters of his first and last names, and he got the idea for the name after a school computer system automatically generated the word "Kygo" as his login username.
Kygo was born on 11 September 1991 in Singapore and raised in Tønsberg; he is the son of Kjersti Gjerde, an actress in Norway, and Lars Gørvell-Dahll, who was working abroad in the maritime industry. He has an older stepbrother Mads, two older sisters Johanne and Jenny, and a younger half-brother Sondre. Throughout his childhood, he lived and traveled with his family in Brazil, Japan, Kenya, and Egypt.
Kygo started taking piano lessons at the age of six, and considers himself more of a pianist than a disc jockey. He stopped when he was 15 or 16 and started producing music with Logic Studio and a MIDI keyboard while watching several tutorials on YouTube. When he decided to pursue music full-time, he was halfway through a degree in business and finance at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. He has cited Swedish DJ Avicii as his main inspiration.
On 15 May 2013, Kygo released his first single called "Epsilon" on the Romanian record label Ensis Records. On 1 December 2014, he released the single "Firestone", featuring vocals from Conrad Sewell, which gained international recognition and debuted on several charts worldwide, being streamed 700 million times on YouTube and 715 million times on Spotify, as of 2 January 2020. After receiving over 80 million views on YouTube and SoundCloud, Kygo was contacted by Avicii and by Chris Martin of Coldplay to create a remix of the song "Midnight". He has also supported Avicii at Findings Festival in Oslo, Norway, in 2014. On 19 September 2014, it was confirmed that Kygo was to replace Avicii at mainstage in TomorrowWorld, due to Avicii's health concerns.
He was also featured in an interview for Billboard magazine, where he talked to writer Matt Medved about his remixes for Diplo and Coldplay, and talked about his upcoming tour in North America. In July 2014, Kygo entered into a partnership with EDM lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a collaboration bracelet for which one hundred per cent of the proceeds are donated to Médecins Sans Frontières. In the same month, he signed a record label deal with Sony International and Ultra Music.
2015–2016: Cloud Nine and Kygo Life
In February 2015, Kygo's song "ID" was featured in the official trailer for Ultra Music Festival. The same track is also featured on FIFA 16, a popular association football video game by EA Sports. On 21 March 2015, he released his second single, titled "Stole the Show", featuring Parson James, which as of 2 January 2019, had 326 million views on YouTube. On 31 July 2015, he released his third single, "Nothing Left", featuring Will Heard. "Nothing Left" reached number one on the Norwegian Singles Chart. In August 2015, Kygo was a featured headliner at Lollapalooza in Chicago, one of the biggest music festivals in the world. On 4 September 2015, he released his fourth single, titled "Here for You", featuring Ella Henderson, which was revealed to be the vocal version of the song "ID" that was released as part of the Ultra Music Festival. He made his U.S. television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden in October 2015.
Three months later, his fifth single, "Stay", produced with fellow Norwegian record producer William Larsen and featuring vocals by Maty Noyes, was released on 4 December 2015. In December 2015, Kygo became the fastest artist in history to reach one billion streams on Spotify.
After the release of the single, Kygo announced that he was embarking on a worldwide tour to promote his debut studio album.

He, instead, released a teaser of the songs that he was working on that were on his debut studio album and released it on SoundCloud.
In the beginning of March 2016, Kygo announced that his debut studio album was going to be released on 13 May 2016, under the title Cloud Nine.

He performed "Carry Me" with American singer and songwriter Julia Michaels at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics on 21 August at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, as part of a segment that promoted the new Olympic Channel service launching after the Games.

Kygo, via his socials, teased an unreleased Avicii track known as "Forever Yours".

Golden Hour was released on 29 May 2020.
His stage name Kygo can be pronounced as (Norwegian pronunciation: [kyːɡuː]) for Norwegian speakers, and // for English speakers. Both pronunciations can be used interchangeably. Kyrre got the idea for his stage name through a username he received in high school for the digital learning platform itslearning. The service used parts of his name to create a nickname, thereof "Ky-" standing for the first two letters in his given name "Kyrre", and "-go" for the first two letters in his last name "Gørvell-Dahll". The letter ø is usually replaced with letter o in computing. In an interview with newspaper Fanaposten, Kyrre quoted; "Kygo [as an artist name] has been absolutely perfect. It is very easy to say, in both Norwegian and English. [And] I have no need to change the artist name [in the future]".
In June 2016, NRK said that Kygo is "giving 50 000 USD [...] of the profits [of his sold-out festival on 20 August]" to Frank Mugisha; Kygo was quoted: "Everyone should be permitted to live with one's sexual orientation. That is not the situation in Uganda and quite a few other countries across the world".
