Upright and electric bass player from Stockholm, Sweden. Originally from Uppsala, Niklas has studied Jazz & Improvisation at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm and at the Conservatoire de Paris (CNSMDP).
Besides playing with many of Sweden's finest musicians - Gösta Rundqvist, Lina Nyberg, Fredrik Ljungkvist, Joakim Milder among others - he also runs the record label Maine Coon Productions, whose first CD “Cembra”, by Swedish piano trio Graden/Agnas/Fernqvist, is released in August 2012.
It's not often that a young Swedish jazz group captures the listener's attention
so completely as the trio Graden/Agnas/Fernqvist do on their debut album. (...)
One is struck by the contrasts, from the rampant and wild, to the delicate
melodies of 'Zarja'. It's full of expression and relaxation, with an imagination
that knows no genre limitations. And all well-worked in a dynamic interplay,
where the instruments appear on equal terms.
