About this project
Finally I'm fulfilling the dream of producing a solo album with my own music. I've written and performed music, mostly for my self but also in bands, for about 20 years. Until recently I've been very self consious about my voice, but as I'm getting older that's changing, both because I got better at singing and because frankly I don't give a f...
When I started playing music, in my late teens, I was facinated by punk rock. I think that suited me very well since I wasn't very good at playing, and more or less of an accident I ended up singing in a punk rock band.
The old punk rocker still lives, but life has worn me down. It's not about screaming my lungs out to cry down the marshall-stack anymore. It's just me and my acoustic guitar, but still delivering the same kind of socially critical lyrics.
As mentioned earlier, I used to sing and play the guitar in a punk rock band called Sverkers. Here's one of our songs
Recently I recorded a cover of Rolling Stones "Paint it Black", with my son playing the guitar. Here's our video
Om jag får bestämma...
The album, with the working title "Om jag får bestämma..." (translates to "If it's up to me..."), has grown in the back of my head for years. Now I have made a plan for my album. It'll be an acoustic album. Less is more, as they say, but if I want to add a little brass of strings to a song, I will.
The lyrics will reflect my view on life and society. My deep concerns about the racists in the right-wing extremists Sverigedemokraterna growing in Sweden, as well as my concerns about the unjustices and growing economic gaps.
Risks and challenges
There aren't really any risks or challanges in this problem. I'm writing all the music on my own. I'll record on my own.
My goal is to have the album ready by November, and officially released in December, meaning I have a lot of time to finish the work.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
