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." - Stargate 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.
