About

Hi there! I’m glad you found your way to my world of music. 

I grew up in the little village of Sundborn in the heart of Dalarna with the wilderness around the corner. I use to find inspiration in the life stories of others. I love to connect to those artists who have the ability to tell stories. As a kid I used to listen to my Dad’s vinyl records from the 60’s and 70s. That’s how I discovered the great music of Bob Dylan, The Eagles and Elvis Presley among others. Listening to good storytellers encouraged me to become a singer-songwriter. 

During my childhood days I used to dream about becoming a trapper in the wilderness like Davy Crockett, or to become a professional boxer like Muhammad Ali and sometimes I dreamed about becoming a kind-hearted gangster, but honestly I didn’t have a clue. I’m glad to tell you my dreams are different now. Confusion is the price you pay when you walk in the ancestral traces without knowing why, at least that’s my experience. Where I grew up we never talked about searching, finding and walking your path. Taking a chance like that wasn’t worth the risk of failure but I didn’t care. Or let me say I had no choice.  I’ve been through some rough periods in my life where I really had to stand my ground. Confronting my checkered past made me come alive and through this process I gained a lot of inspiration to write new songs.  

Through the years I’ve been playing live at all kind of venues and 2018 I did my first tour in the USA. I did several gigs in the North Carolinas and I have to say that I was amazed by the great response. The Swedish touring 2019 was a pleasant experience as well. I performed at the Malungsfors visfestival, Hijazz and Hotel Hulingen to mention a few. Right now Covid-19 is messing up the world which means postponed gigs etc. I was able to play six gigs during this year which is pretty good in this crazy times. 

As you might know I’m not on the Billboard charts yet but I do feel great about the increasing numbers of listeners who discover my music. I like to end this self-biographic text by telling you that my new album “Highs and Lows" just got released. I hope you will enjoy listening to it.  

Love & light, 

Mattias
