Envelope is a pop/rock band from Denmark that has been very much influenced by bands such as The Beatles, The Doors, Burt Bacharach, Sergio Mendez, Simon and Garfunkel, The Kinks, Air, Kean...to name a few inspirations. Envelope was formed in May 1998 by Christoffer Hoyer and has to this day been actively involved in performing. For a very long time, the band had three permanent members - Christoffer Høyer, Jesper Valentin Holm and Sune Ørvad - and various bass guitarists. But, eventually, it became a Christoffer Hoyer solo project.
Envelope was founded by Christoffer Høyer. Together with Jesper Holm, for a long time, he formed the 'core' of Envelope.
Christoffer Høyer, in the meantime as being the frontman, is Envelope's songwriter, guitarist, pianist and, most important of all, vocals. He has long been collaborating with such songwriters as Hiroaki Serizawa of Japan - who has had more than 50 No. 1 hits in Asia and sold in excess of 15 million singles - and Adam Argyle of Britain - who has written the single "Next Best Superstar" for ex-Sporty Spice Girl, Melanie C.
Jesper Valentin Holm became a member of Envelope in February 1999 and has since been the drummer and percussionist, as well as the co-frontman.
