For Swedish singer-songwriter act ‘a strAnger’, music has always been an eclectic undertaking. Starting out playing in bands ranging from thrash, to heavy rock to grunge and punk-rock, while at the same time honing his acoustic skills on his own and appreciating a wide range of other musical styles; ‘a strAnger’ does not worry much about genres. Being influenced by a wide array of music based on electric-, electronic- and acoustic instruments spanning various decades, it is quite natural to use them all as compliments to each other in his music as he sees fit. Lyrically ‘a strAnger’ songs are in many ways a social commentary or reflection, both on things unfolding in close proximity and in the distance. 7 years was spent in China during the first decade of the 21st century, exploring and taking part in the emerging rock scence, as a solo artist and with his heavy rock outfit “The Roadkills”, but also performing with various international constellations – consisting of anything from jazz musicians to dj’s. This musical journey took him to festivals, events, rock clubs, dance clubs and outdoor stages all over mainland China and to Taiwan. With “The Roadkills” 2 EPs were recorded, and after having moved back to Sweden he released the solo album “Volatility” in 2010. In 2012 the single “Enough said” was released. The last couple of years have been alot about finding a path for music in Sweden and the West, coming back from the dynamics of China. And finding a path in the changing landscape of music. Which in turn impacts the way to release music, as well as finding a balance between where and when. ‘a strAnger’ is delighted to finally be sharing the fruit the last couple of years’ hard work with his new collection of songs “Insatiable”, which is being released on a song-by-song basis throughout the course of 2016-2017.
