Christoffer Høyer started out as an artist in the band Envelope. From 1999 through 2008, he toured a lot with the band and they released two albums, “Stay” (2001) and “Open Roads Lonely Trains” (2007).
As a songwriter he had honed his craft since he started writing songs at the age of eight. During his time in the band, gradually, he got more and more into writing, producing and recording music and songs for various film/TV projects as well as other artists.
By 2009, he spent most of his time working as a composer, songwriter, music producer and multi instrumentalist.
However, there was still time to make music in his own right and in 2012, he released his first album as a solo artist – the album “Silent Songs About Things That Don’t Hapen (Warner Music).
More songs of his own keep piling up and a second solo album is planned to be released at some point during 2017.
Silent Songs About Things That Don’t Happen
Signed by Warner Music Scandinavia, the album was released in November, 2012.
The album contains 12 new songs and has been recorded in the legendary STC Studio in Copenhagen NV, produced by Chris’ mates, Tomas Høffding (“Who Made Who”, “Bon Homme”) and Frank Birch Pontoppidan (Howe Gelb, John Parish, Tina Dickow, Tim Christensen…).

“Open Roads Lonely Trains” (2007)
The second album Envelope album, “Open Roads Lonely Trains” was released in Denmark in early 2007. Produced by Chris and Danish producer, Boe Larsen.
The album received massive airplay on Danish radio. One of the songs on the album was translated and covered by Finland’s fourth best selling artist, Simo Silmu. Another song from the album, “Open Window”, was featured on the American TV show “One Tree Hill” (Warner Bros.).
Envelope’s debut album, “Stay”, was released in 2001. It was a success through-out Scandinavia and was A-listed on 26 radio stations in Sweden, rotation on Danish P3 and P4 and lots of airplay in Norway and Sweden.
In 2004, two songs from “Stay” were picked to feature on the American TV show, “Good Girls Don’t”.
This offered a new scope and potential for Christoffer’s abilities as a songwriter and producer and, eventually, led him to pursue working more in Los Angeles where Chris is now, regularly, collaborating with writers/producers, music publishers and supervisers…primarily focusing on songs and music for film and TV.

Chris wrote and composed 40 minutes of music and songs with classical composer, Peter Bruun (awarded with “Nordisk Musikråds Pris”). The music features Chris on vocals, guitars, harmonium along with a string quartet, marimba, xylophone and percussions.
Chris toured with the production through-out 2011, 2012 and 2013.
