Thank you!

Drivin' & Dreaming - THE BOOK & CD

Two months ago I put up a Kickstarter project for a live album and a book about the US tour “Drivin’ & Dreaming”. I didn’t know if any of you would be interested in reading about it, after all, I posted a lot on Facebook and my website along the way. But not only did you show me that you wanted to read more about it, you showed me that you support me in what I do and want me to keep on doing it!

The book and the album was funded within 24 hours and now that the project is closed we almost tripled our goal. This has helped me to expand the book from the original planned 200 pages to 300 pages, filled with stories, pictures and recipes – and believe me I could have filled 1000, but 300 is not bad either. So this is me saying THANK YOU for your support, on the tour and now – after the tour.

The whole thing was such an amazing experience and I got to relive it all through making this book. I hope you will feel like it was you going on tour when you read it, and I hope you will love every story just as much as I love them and try all the recipes (especially the Swedish ones).

Some final editing is left for me to do before I send it off to the printer and it should be ready to ship to you in September. I hope you all have enjoyed your digital bonus album and have checked out the videos for all the songs (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL291E31BFD5CB9723). 

If you haven’t watched it already, here’s the video diary I did while on the tour, ten episodes of gigs, driving, breaking down and having fun:http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL77033D15B65E7C84

Well, I suppose I need to get to work finishing all so you can get your goodies ūüėČ

Thanks once again for your immense support!

Drivin’ & Dreaming – BOOK & LIVE ALBUM

From November 2011 to March 2013 I did the adventure of a lifetime. I toured America in an old RV and played my music in every little town I could find.

Many of you followed my tour through Facebook and my website and I met and became friends with so many of you along the way.

I’ve now decided to collect all my personal memories, pictures, stories and concert recordings from the tour in a coffee table book and a live album so that I can share all the fun I had with you. This is an excellent way to re-live the tour, as well as to be a part of it even if you didn’t get a chance to come to any of the shows.

Needless to say it’s a massive project that will take all summer for me to complete. That is why I’m asking you for help, and for some of your dollars to fund this huge undertaking.

Click Here
I’ve decided to make this book and album it into a Kickstarter Project. That way I’ll let YOU choose how much this project is worth, how much you are willing to support my passion and work to continue to create art and music. If you don’t know how Kickstarter works, I will send out some tutorials later, but to in short you choose a tier and a reward to help me fund parts of the production costs.

Once aboard you’ll get updates on the progress, see how the book grows and get to listen to previews of the songs from the live album. Everyone who joins will also get an exclusive download of an acoustic version of my latest album “The Owls Are Not What They Seem” that I recorded out in the nature in beautiful locations along the way.

By becoming a part of the project you will help assure that the book and album becomes reality, and it will also be the only way to get your hands on it. It will be very exclusive and only printed for the ones who join, you won’t be able to order it on my website or in any other store after the project closes.

Drivin' & Dreaming - THE BOOK & CD

This is my way of thanking you for helping me out along the way, for making my tour possible and for your support and friendship.

My Drivin’ & Dreaming tour is nearing its end but President Obama wouldn’t have it that I didn’t have any more shows in Washington, DC ūüėČ so I had to schedule a show at the House of Sweden on February 24th (I didn’t want to be responsible for the US invading Sweden after all).

Happy New Year everyone!

2012 has been an amazing year. My tour has taken me to 35 states and I’ve done over 200 shows. I’ve met wonderful people and made new friends all over the US. In January and February I’m wrapping up my Drivin’ & Dreaming Tour here in the US before moving it to Europe. I’m touring my way back to Florida where it all started over a year ago and by that I’m completing the circle around the US. You have all been such a big support this year, helping me through flat tires and new releases. I have a bunch of shows booked in the Southern States in January and February and I hope to see both new as well as familiar faces on the shows. Here’s a list of my upcoming shows, more dates to come, see all details on my GIG page. Happy New 2013!
