About me

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

In December 2018 I released the EP The Beauty of Bare Branches. The EP has been produced by Simon Toulson-Clarke, London, and contains the three tracks Carved in Stone, A Tale of Two Hearts and Land of Swallows.

On live gigs I am accompanied by Aldo Donatello on guitar and vocals.

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 which was released in September 2019.

Now and then I do studio work for other

singer-songwriters and artists, which is something 

I very much enjoy. Have a look at Studio for a listen.

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