I work both as a lyricist and songwriter, and have co-written with many writers from around the world. I am equally comfortable with toplining a finished track as with creating something new from scratch. If you have a half-finished song idea, I am skilled at finding the essence of it and working it into a fully formed song you can be proud of. I am an experienced arranger and producer, and also have a wide network of musicians that can add their talents to your project. I work in both Logic and Pro Tools, but if you have another DAW it is always possible to export to my platforms one way or the other.
As a live vocal performer, I work mainly with singer/songwriter trio My Quiet Companion and with Ocean’s Five, a quintet that explores the Great American Songbook and finds a new twist on seemingly worn-out standards. As a recording artist, my latest release is Sawdust & Rust. I can put together a live music act for your party/wedding etc to suit your needs and I will provide lead and/or backing vocals on your recording project if that what’s called for.
Moorstream Studios are run by myself and Martin Carlberg. Here we can cater to your recording needs, big or small. Fully equipped and situated about 25 mins from GOT (Gothenburg International Airport), we offer competitive prices and a wealth of experience as producers, musicians and artists in our own right. Our vast network of excellent musicians will cover anything from a basic band setup to the more eclectic. Bagpipes? No problem. And if by any chance you need to record a full orchestra, we have the right connections for that as well.

Below are a few selected videos: First a showreel of music for film, then a promo video for Gingerbread Man the single from my second solo album, and finally a lyric video for Caroline, a song with my folk-pop project Sawdust & Rust.
