Inspired of the work of Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm, a few months back I got the idea- and suggested to my friend Johan aka Sleepy Songs, that since we connect deeply with the piano music, we could try to do some cooperative work.
I suggested the names Rowan and Elder as the name of the project, and soon enough the first single Rowan was finished. A little more than a week back we got it released with some help from The Sonder House, and it’s hitting the playlists by now and is gaining some attention.
Single: Rowan – Planned release date: July 5th, 2019
“Rowan and Elder” is a collaboration of Sleepy Songs (Johan Eckman) and Rikard Mathisson, with two pianos and four hands. Both pianists have over 50,000 combined streams each month. Releases together with the New York brand The Sonder House.
The single “Rowan” is part of a planned series of piano tracks in a collaboration inspired by Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnald’s work.
