Biography: Kwan was formed in 2000 from Pauli Rantasalmi's and Antti Eräkangas's initial idea to make hiphop with a live band. The band's debut album Dynasty went platinum quickly, and Kwan also won two prizes at Finland's equivalent to the Grammies, the Emmas.

Second album Die Is Cast sold double platinum, and Kwan didn't get a chance to catch its breath until after the end of their tour in the summer of 2003. Another Emma came their way.

After a short and refreshing break the band returned in 2004 with Love Beyond This World, which sold gold, and included the hits Unconditional Love and Decadence of the Heart. And another acceptance speech at the Emma gala.

Kwan's fourth album called Little Notes was released in Finland on March 22nd of 2006. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
