The Danish / Polish act Squares to Bend was formed in 2009. The duo consists of multi-instrumentalist and producer Piotr Fronek (age 23) and vocalist / poet Mikkel Konyher (age 20). The two members met each other at a Contemporary Music College in Denmark where Piotr asked Mikkel to lay down vocals on one of his tracks. After a few hours in the studio their first track titled “Moms Juice” was finished and the seeds of “Squares to Bend” were planted. From this point everything happened fast. 4 out of 12 tracks were finished after only one month.
Polish born Piotr has been active on the Warsaw music scene since 2003, starring in multiple bands as well as his solo projects. He is a gifted charismatic guitarist who knows no boundaries and breaks all stereotypes. He headlines bands like Funky Niepokalanki, Fronku Jazz Trio and collaborated with Laki Lan, Cool Kids of Death and various other musicians. He has also played jam sessions at the famous Club 55 in Warsaw.
Mikkel Konyher grew up in Odense, Denmark and found his musical talent at the age of 11. He too has been in many bands throughout Denmark, but put his major focus on a band called Mindcall which was awarded third place in Emergenza the biggest music contest in Denmark. His single with Mindcall was released in 2005 on EMI Records Denmark. Moreover this bright youngster is also an actor who starred in the movie Young Andersen which won an Emmy Award in 2005.
