Diamond No 1
Andreas lives in Stockholm, Sweden and has been in the music business for a number of years now. Been working as a keyboard player or backup- vocalist with many great Swedish artists. This including both performances live and recordings. Andreas has had the opportunity to develop in various genres and styles. He's been producing gospel albums, performing on jazz clubs, doing backup vocals on commercial pop albums etc. He has been seen on national television, been heard on the radio but also at smaller venues doing intimate concerts featuring just him and the piano. Andreas also has a publishing deal with Warner Chappell as a songwriter. After many years recording and writing songs for others he finally released his first solo album 'Diamond no 1'. Since the release in Sweden and Scandinavia Andreas has been all over playing on clubs, in hotels, churches yeah everywhere. As well as playing live on radio and doing interviews for magazines. He's now looking for opportunities to spread his music abroad. 'This record is something I needed to do. The process of doing it was quite long and lasted a few years. At the beginning I didn't even know whether the songs would be released or spread in any way. I believe that was important. It made it become something that was truly me and not something that I had to do to please anyone or anything. The lyrics are dealing with issues of life like love, relationships and faith. Many of the songs talk about the presence of God and about wanting to know him more. I think of the songs as prayers.'
