About me

I am a singer, songwriter and violin player based in Uppsala, Sweden.

In December 2018 the EP The Beauty of Bare Branches was released. It contains the three tracks Carved in Stone, A Tale of Two Hearts and Land of Swallows. On November 26th I will be releasing the single Christmas Lights In Every Tree, a song about driving home for Christmas holidays and the moment when you see all the lights shimmering in the darkness of the night. It´s sort of a celebration of the countryside too.

As a violin player I am a part of the instrumental duo Towerlight.  I am also an associate member of the English band Red Box and playing on the band´s album Chase the Setting Sun.

Now and then I do studio work for other

singer-songwriters and artists, which is something 

I very much enjoy.

I grew up on the countryside outside Sundsvall on the north-east coast of Sweden. From an early age I sang and played traditional Swedish music and was also trained in classical violin. Later on I have studied traditional music at Malungs folkhögskola, songwriting at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London and musicology at Stockholm University.
