Samuel has established himself as one of the most creative and fearless guitarists to ever come out of Sweden’s present-day jazz scene. With a contemporary progressive outlook on guitar playing and a healthy sense of lack of respect, Samuel’s flexibility and openness has made him an in- demand musician and award winning bandleader.

Blending jazz, rock and country, with radio
samples in the mix, Hällkvist’s songs have
a cinematic feel, with some sounding as
though they could have been the score to
a David Lynch film.
