Interview:

What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your
surroundings?

Could be anything really, all from other music or cultural events, books, plays, movies, but also everyday things like relations, society and politics. I like old swedish folk music and let myself being influenced by polkas and hambo songs as well as drone music like didgeridoo rhytms, and old medieval bag pipe music.

What type of music did you listen to growing up?

My dad was a classical music fanatic so I grew up with all the 17th and 18th century masters that marked me with melodies and harmonies as well as the Swedish folk music. Mom listen to lots of Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and other pop/rock acts but I started to listen more and more to rock and heavier music in my teens. All from AC/DC, the Doors, Pink Floyd, to Iron Maiden, Metallica and Slayer and Death/Black metal acts as well.

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?

Not really, I am not that kind of person having idols or heroes, but I was heavily influenced by Phil Rudd in AC/DC and John Bonham in Led Zeppelin when starting to play drums (among other fantastic drummers of course).

If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

I am working as a scientist making new drugs, good combo with being a musician I think – you get the best out of two worlds; lots of thinking and planning and not so much thinking and planning, just the feeling of the music allowing you to create songs. If you´ve had a rough day in the lab or with people there is nothing better than heading to the rehersal room and beat the shit out of the drums together with the band!

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create
music?

Just start playing, start creating. It doesn´t have to be dead serious – the most important thing is that you play the music YOU enjoy and have tons of fun doing it! It´s a lifestyle more than anything else.
