Born in Linköping, Sweden with a father and a brother playing guitar I started playing guitar at a young age. Starting out in rock and funk bands in Hammar(Askersund) and later Vänersborg I found my way into jazz through jazzfusion. I studied jazz 4 years at folkhighscools in sweden and then moved to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Intitute were i could play and learn from my heroes, such as: Scott Hendersson, Steve Cardenas, Carl Schroeder, Sid Jacobs and Ron Eschete. Later i moved back to Stockholm to start diffrent jazz and fusion projects playing in the jazzclubs of stockholm. And i attended the Royal school of music for 4 years. My latest release is Johan Grim Band, Dedications.
