Primary Instrument: Bass, electric

Born: May 7, 1969

Born in May, 1969 I grew up in a small town called Mal√•. That¬'s in the north of Sweden where the winters are cold and the summers are short... At the age of 13 me and my twin brother formed a band together called Boogart. Before that I was learning to play guitar and drums, but then I switched to bass. The band Boogart turned out to be quite a successful band over the years, and it¬'s still up and running. I also studied in a music school for one year when I was 17 and then worked as a music teacher the year after. After finishing my military service at age 19, I toured all over Sweden with Boogart for 2 years. I then decided to leave the band and move to Vienna where I began my studies at American Institute of Music back in -91. I studied electric bass for G√ľnther Kirchteiger and upright bass for Wayne Darling. Other inspirational teachers for me were Les Wise, Wayne Brasel an Jeff Boudreaux. In Vienna I also played on records and did concerts with various bands. It was at that time I was introduced to the music of John Patitucci and he has been the biggest inspiration ever since. I graduated with a professional diploma and moved back to Sweden where I have the opportunity to be working a lot as a freelance musician. I¬'m also a full time member of some bands; Regnrock, BugariBasso, Two Brothers, Hylands and the fusion band Ominox. Learn more about these exciting projects on the “musicproject”-menu!...
