With the record release close at hand, we have our first gig of the spring! Come join us as we initiate the new and almost full band at In Suburbia on April 7! Find more info in the ‘Gigs’ menu. Come, come!
The second and last single, a (likely to be) familiar story with a strange (?) name, is now available! You’ll find it on a number of music services; Spotify, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Deezer, Soundcloud and TIDAL to name a few. I couldn’t be more excited, as one usually is, about bringing you the whole collection of songs in late March/early April! Before The Creek And the Carving, have a listen to the singles!

Trying to keep pace here, the second and last single preceding the up-coming album The Creek And the Carving appears on familiar electronic platforms next Friday! Look out!
And here we are! The first single of The Creek And the Carving is up for grabs! Released on my own label Strange Light Music, there is obviously no promotional machinery behind it, So!

On Wednesday of February 10:th, folks, my first single The Mutual Strain will be available on electronic sources of which some you are certainly familiar with; Spotify, iTunes and Google Play to name a few. ‘Guest appearances’, or session musicians if you will, are the brilliant Poul Amaliel on drums and and the equally brilliant Isabelle Andö on violin, thank you friends! Added to this yours truly on song, bass, guitars and tambourine. Cover design was made by my dear friend Richard G. Lindström from the artwork of his dear wife (oh dear), the presently and distinctively rising painting artist Emma Lindström. Here starts the journey toward the album and spring gigs!
Two mixes away from completion and the first song sent for test-mastering. Soon time for this little bundle to leave the nest for an, obviously, uncertain future. First in line is a single, hopefully to arrive at the end of this month/early February, called “The Mutual Strain”. Hang in there with me!
A mix of an instrumental to arrive on the album in edited shape. Happy listening!
On a thoroughly positive note, sound man Poul is back on track in both senses and we’re rolling again! Mixes and comments are tossed around between the two of us, with results I’m increasingly anxious to share with you all. Unless something extra-ordinary occurs during the weeks/month to come, The Creek And the Carving will be released in February of 2016! Before that, and in relatively close succession, there will be two singles released during January and February. And before that again, you’ll hear from me!
Wet kisses /k
Bad news first, thus leaving space for the possible psychological impact of ending on a happy note. Mixer and notorious working-horse Poul, have sadly experienced some personal difficulties during the past months, prompting him to take a break from his projects to get back on his feet. In the case of my record, this means a delay of the release, probably to sometime during the beginning of the year to come. At best the two singles will be released before 2016, but that can’t be, as things are, a promise.
As for the Good note; my dear friend Richard is presently fiddling with covers (singles and album) and booklet, making drafts that, believe you me, look brilliant already at this early stage. The Creek And the Carving will be dressed in a fine costume for you all, or three. Differing from the lack of follow-up to the release of my first album, the present one will be accompanied by live-performances, videos and activities of that sort.
Friends, I’ll keep you posted on the traffic, whether you want to or not. Cheers!
My solo album of this year is presently, and since some time, in the oven. If one is always concerned with the intricacies of appropriate spicing, the finish seems a matter of hope or sticky aftertaste in musical bakery. The buns are no longer solely on my table, but are sent back and forth between yours truly and mixmaster flex Poul Amaliel, sharpening his tools with great precaution.
Mumbo jumbo. The Creek and The Carving will (most) probably be released in November with two singles preceding the thirteen unit-cake. For the moment I want to send out my greatest gratitude addressed to a number of people, namely a small group of hope-giving enthusiasts formally called crowdfunders and, surely not secondly, the brilliant musical contributors! In particular disorder:
Thank you friendly funders!
