Thomas Regin lives in Denmark, and his style is very similar to that of Elton John. He's been a composer practically all his life, and his power ballads soar with a vitality and emotion very rare and precious. He works predominantly with keyboards, be they piano or computer.
I recommend the songs Always, Less Than Asleep and Love Ain't What It Used To Be. His works build with a lot of energy, has a rhythmic use of piano chords, some lovely synthesized strings, and the lyrics really strike a chord with me.
