I’m a lineman…

Everytime I need to do something, like recordings for a new album or something. I get this urge to do something else, something that I don’t need to do. That’s how I started doing the Christmas singles and all the other stuff that I do, just me, just by myself. So I guess it was no surprise that instead of going through the recorded files last week, I picked up the guitar and learned the old classic “Wichita Lineman”. Years back I had a brief collaboration with Swedish artist Niclas Frisk (Atomic Swing, A Camp). He was the one who first played me this song and I still love it. So thank you Niclas! And here’s how it turned out sounding in my kitchen…

Don’t bother with the video? Listen to the mp3.

Banjo duel anyone?

Hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I bought myself a Banjo for Christmas. It’s a bit tricky to play, but I’m trying my best. Next album I’ll try to use it on a few songs. Yeeeehaaa!

This year’s Christmas single is dedicated to all those people who need a helping hand, whether it is the lonely teenager or the homeless man on the street. This single is a free download, but I urge you to use the money you would have spent on it on iTunes to help someone less fortunate. My donation is to Stadsmissionen who helps homeless people in Sweden. If you give a gift to them by text message you will receive this Christmas single as a cellphone signal. Use it and let your friends know that you care for those who need it.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time to do good deeds and I’ve stocked up on them this year! MQ (one of Sweden’s largest clothing companies) has joined forces with the Red Cross this Christmas in the campaign “Give a little bit” and I’m very happy to be a part of it. There will be a commersial on TV with 16 Swedish artists and we’re all giving our fees to the Red Cross.

I’m also, as usual each year, releasing a Christmas single. But this time I hope you will all visit Stadsmissionens website (Stadsmissionen helps homeless people in Sweden) and donate a gift by text message. If you do that you will get my Christmas single “A Carol for the Lonely” as a cellphone signal directly to your phone. The single will be available as mp3 here on my website as well.

God Jul!

Jag brukar ju alltid ge bort en jul-låt när det börjar närma sig december. Kanske lite tidigt att tänka på det nu kanske tycker ni, men grejen var att jag faktiskt började tänka på det idag och det slutade med att jag skrev årets jul-låt idag. Gjorde en liten demo-inspelning och konstaterade snabbt att det var den bästa jul-låten jag skrivit hittills så nu har ni nåt att se fram emot om ni redan tröttnat på skivan. 🙂
