I am a Swedish musician/composer/educator/actor currently residing in Hastings. I have a Master of Education in Music specialising in Jazz Saxophone from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. I play a number of instruments, all sizes of saxophones (I own soprano, alto, tenor and barytone), all sizes of clarinets (I own soprano Bb and A, alto and bass), piano and keyboards and I also enjoy playing Flute, Ukulele and Accordion.
I am a founding member several bands. My Friend Lester Quartet – a swing band that grew out of the play My Friend Lester – The Musical Romance of Billie Holiday & Lester Young. Nybakat! is a Swedish/Israeli modern jazz quartet who I have toured Sweden, UK and Israel and recorded 2 albums with. I was also a founding member of world music group Lele Lele and recorded the first album with them and toured Sweden and Bulgaria. I left the group in 2009 when I moved to the UK but they are still going strong.
I am also a member of the swing bands Harry’s Tricks and The Magic Number, London based function band Bloomfield Avenue, the improvisational group The Adventurists and psycho rock band MynieMoe. You might also occasionally see me swing my horns with Flash Mob Jazz and the Swing Ninjas.
Since 2002 I have been working with The Show – A Tribute to ABBA (formerly ABBA the Show), first as saxophonist/2nd keyboard but since 2008 I have played the part of Benny Andersson, playing 1st keyboard/piano and singing. The show has toured all over the world. Some notable gigs are at the Hollywood Bowl, The Royal Albert Hall, O2 Arena Hamburg, Sao Paolo city festival to 80.000 people.
Apart from playing music I also very much enjoy composing in various genres, from jazz via instrumental folk to pop. Several of my compositions have been released on albums. I do arranging for various groups, mostly horn arrangements but also for string quartet, woodwing quintet, choir, big band and miscellaneous ensembles. I have also experience in transcribing music and preparing sheet music using Sibelius.
My father was a teacher and I think sharing the knowledge of music is in my blood. I have around 15 private students that I teach piano, clarinet, saxophone and music theory. I am currently looking for more students in the Hastings in area so please get in touch if you are interested.
I have a music studio in my home and I record music there for a range of different artists. Lately I have been doing a lot of work for house producer Low Deep T, afro-disco-pop sensation Speelburg and blues rock singer Indus Rush. I would love to add my flair to your recording. Get in touch!
