In 1996 Nielsen formed Colorblind, which was a five-member band featuring a female, lead singer. Colorblind subsequently landed a deal with Iceberg Records and Iceberg Publishing/EMI Music Publishing. Henrik "Hylle" Nielsen wrote 90% of the songs and lyrics on the two "COLORBLIND" Albums. This includes a No.1 hit in Scandinavia as well as 6 radio singles and two videos. The band released two albums, and had two Top 10 hits in Denmark (which also received airplay in Germany); including the #1 hit “Sentimental Fool.” However, when Colorblind broke up in 2003, Nielsen decided to focus on writing songs for other artists. He continued to receive good support from execs at EMI/Iceberg, who believed in his potential as a pure songwriter and has since written and placed songs with several artists. Altogether he has written and recorded more than 100 songs.
Has won several international songwriter-awards - among others UK Songwriting Contest 2005
Hylle has been co-written with among others No Angles (DE), Glen Aitken (UK), Sarah Burgess (US), Monkey Of Sion (UK), Christina Rombol (DK), Misha Williams (US).
