Musikchansen and Confirmation of Concepts

Due to the recent events in Musikchansen and my prior work on Erika’s Song with Aleco and Mathisson, it has given a lot of confirmation to my ongoing concepts. That is important to have;

The music that comes forth may or may not be perfect, but stay true to my core!

Enjoy the songs from Musikchansen and there will be much more of the piano music from now. I’ve said “new music every month”, but that may change due to focus. I hope I will have the time to promote my piano music during the summer since my current piano projects are moving steadily forward now and released piece by piece:

  • Insomnia
  • Rowan and Elder
  • Nordic Piano
  • Melancholica

Here is Musikchansen:

On Air 4-26: Interview with Twelve

My partner Tommy Karlsson and I was interviewed in the radio on Friday morning since we’re participating in a national wide musical contest called P4Nästa with my song Where I First Belong (the semi final of Blekinge is in Karlshamn on Östersjöfestivalen Friday 19/7) – Note: The interview is in Swedish.

Is it hard to sing a love song to somebody else’s wife?

Here is a link to an abstract:

Or you can listen to the full interview from here:

The voting will start in the end of June so you’ll may hear about it more as we go and before that there I’ll be on air a few times, just as the music now and then.

Contest time: P4Nästa 2019!

It’s celebration moment!

It’s been a really hectic April so far with a lot of things going on in my start-up production company, and to me and my friend Tommy yesterday’s big news was that P4Nästa* have picked out my piano and voice singer/songwriter country/folk love-ballade Where I First Belong to be part of the regional semi finals which will take place in Karlshamn on July 19th this year. It’s a great song but Tommy’s voice is awesome and makes it stand out, and I’m so happy that our song got picked out amongst all the others! Yay!!

Read the full page and listen to the program here!

BUT it’s still more than two months before the voting sets in. Anyway, the preparations are in full speed – the starting field is great, and the competition is hard and long. So you will probably hear a lot about this the next two months or so on Facebook … but I’m still in the middle of starting up my long-lasting piano project, which I hope you all enjoy as much as I do. However this weekend there will be a break!

So let’s celebrate; Thanks Tommy for giving this song something extra! This will be a lot of fun! Share and follow for the progress. And now lets, have a relaxing weekend: Happy Easter!!

*) P4 Nästa is a yearly occuring national song contest in Sweden with a lot of new music coming this way, in 2019 a total of 1260 songs was participating. In each county there is a regional final before the national final takes place and there can only be one winner. The winning song normally gains a lot or air time in radio and the songwriter may appear on the show in the national Eurovision Song Contest the year after.
