Spread the word!
On November 10th I’m utmostly proud to present the release of the album Skuggpoeten. A constellation consisting of my dad, writer Roger Bergkvist and singer/componist Esmeralda Moberg.
It’s been over two years since I got a mail from Esmeralda inquiring me for a collaboration with her as folk singer. I sent one of my dad’s poems from his book “Dikter från världens mitt med omnejd” and got a quick response in the shape of a noisy Garage Band MP3-demo of the first melody sketch of Stilla Landskap. I started writing music for the acapella the same night. And the result blew us away. Ten demos later we finally met and started recording sessions in Svenska Grammofonstudion. When we had ten tracks done I finally presented the project to Roger.
The music takes off within traditional swedish folk music’s bittersweet melodyline and blends with big city beats, jazz, soul and electronica. A genre we describe as Urban Folk.
Urban-Folking it out!
