I have been writing music since about the age of 11, and have found that I like to work on things in a project-based manner. I am constantly writing new stuff, and as soon as something cohesive gets completed, I plan to release it digitally in some form.

My most recent releases (via Record Union) include:

Older "albums / musical projects that are cohesive" can be experienced via the player above. Information about each project as well as lyrics are available below. Enjoy!

After (or probably also during) the production of Introverted I started thinking about getting a band together based on some old material that I had written while in the band Heart Killer Team. Talk about re-vamping some of that old stuff had been going on for a few years, and in 2001 I even went so far as to try to put the old band back together again, but it didn't work out.

This time however (the summer of 2004), I felt that I wanted to really figure out what the core sound was, find the best songs, and then run them through my "Max Martin" filter; that is to say that I wanted to reduce them to the bare essentials of what they were trying to communicate. I recorded all the basic guitar, bass and drum tracks myself at home, as well as the vocals, but then got seriously sidetracked by moving to Stockholm to start working at DICE.

It wasn't until I had figured out that I didn't really want to work at DICE anymore that I started thinking seriously about finishing this project. I talked to Tobias Carlsson in Malmö about having him and Daniel Olsén help me finish it, acting as producers/engineers. It turned out that they were available very soon, and so I rushed to finish laying down all the basic tracks, in the process actually wearing a hole in my main guitar-solo finger.

After a week of intense final arrangement and mastering, Funk Revival turned out very much to my liking, and I felt that this was a good basis for a new band; after moving to Gothenburg, this became the basis of UP...
