I’ve just arrived in Hawaii to do my first gigs! The weather here is awesome and as the sun thirsting Swede I am I have already got a little sunburnt. It’s been almost 7 months since I saw any sun so who can blame me.
I’m really looking forward to all the gigs that we have lined up, a little sad that we’ll only be in San Francisco one day as that is one of my favorite cities and there’s so much there that I’d love to show the guys in the band. I’m thinking I have to at least take them down for a clam chowder at the Warf.
I’m also really looking forward to coming to San Diego (buy tickets here!) where I’ll be playing at Acoustic Music San Diego. When my latest album “Jonestown” was released in the US last year I was interviewed by “The Jonestown Report” which has its officie in San Diego. After the interview was published a former member and survivor of People’s Temple and the Jonestown tragedy contacted me personally, which you can imagine was quite overwhelming but also one of the sweetest and most heartfelt feedbacks I’ve ever had to my music. You can read the interview here.
Here’s a few photos from the tour so far!

Tired, but happy to arrive in Hawaii after a 22 hour flight!
Pretty view from my hotel room window! (don’t you just love the Histamatic app for the iPhone)
Jocke is thinking of buying a Ukelele!
