Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I’ve been writing music for a long time. Started the musical journey when I played as a trubadour at the student pub in Västerås and from there started a band called Bonfire Sun. Now the band is put to sleep but I felt a need to continue writing. About two years ago I found inspiration to make a full length album.
