This summer has been exciting in an unusual way
:John Olsson of Olsson Amps has built a fantastic guitar amp to my specifications! It is a combination of the two amps that he has already built and I am extremely happy with it!
It has a rich, full and warm tone over the whole register and it makes it extra fun to play again! No matter how long you work at something - it is always good to get new inspiration, and this amp is definitely doing that for me!It makes my Yamaha SA2200 sound even better!
The tour with Lew Soloff, Lou Marini, Per Lindvall and Lars Larry Danielsson was a hugh success! Sold out gigs and enthusiastic crowds. We hope to do it again next year!
In June I finished recording a new Christmas album, titled "Jul på Norska" with Arild
Andersen and Jan Lundgren. The album will (together with "Jul på
Svenska") be released in the fall of 2013 in Scandinavia, Germany,
Austria, France and Switzerland.
The CLEO Band (with Per Lindvall, Lars Larry Danielsson, Jesper Nordenström) will tour Finland and Sweden in November. Watch out! - this band is smokin'! We are also planning to record another album, which hopefully will be finished early next year!
In the fall, I will also tour with Helen Sjöholm in October and "Jul på Svenska - Jul på Norska" in December.
I am also continuing my collaboration with Lotta Olsson, writing the music for an album with children's songs. Our musical about dogs, "Bakgårdens Orkester", was just picked up by Skottes, a Theater Co in Gävle, and there is interest for it in Germany.
