Samuel Hällkvist

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.

”Samuel Hallkvist would give a psychologist making a study of guitarists’ behavioural patterns no end of research material.” Rob Adams, Herald Scotland

“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.” Teresa Sampson, sentimentalistmag.com
