What was the beginning pint for your music career? How did it all start?
For me, it all started in 7th grade, Everyone poked at me was a little bullied, But I decided there and then to go my own way, if you do not want to be my friend, you do not deserve my friendship, I borrowed my dad’s old Hagström guitar and started playing Punk rock
Was there any bumps on the road?
There are always obstacles along the way, you just have to learn from it and move on
What kind of challenges did you have to deal with?
To find right people and friends to play with, Real friend like my band mates, People you can trust honest guys
that’s the biggest challenge for me
What was the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far?
In fact, it was with my previous band when we supported Blaze Bayley in Strängnäs 2018
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
When I write the songs, it gets close to my heroes, Judas Priest from the 80’s just love the way they wrote the songs
What is your creative process like?
Oh, that was a difficult question, usually I sit with the guitar. I have a drum track on in the background and the magic emerges hahahaha
If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
To give back the bands the opportunity to be involved in determining their music and income so musicians can live on the whole product you have and not just on merchandise at concerts etc. because you can not make money on record sales
If you were asked to give a piece of advice to upcoming bands, what would that be?
Do your thing, play what you think is good not what others think you should play, practice practice practice boring, yes I know but it will pay off in the end
What has been the best performance of your career so far?
Has not happened yet! With Northern Redemption I will get to experience all my dreams (I hope) We are a good bunch of guys who have found each other and together we create the future for this band
If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing now?
hmm truckdriver for sure
What is new with the band at the moment? What are you currently working on and would like to share with the world?
We are currently working on promoting the band as much as we can, because in March comes the next single called Pandemic and we hope it will be liked and accepted as the debut single Spiritwalker
