Music has always been a big part of my life. The fascination of good melodies and how they can affect moods etc drives me forward. The music I create today is not a part of a ”project” yet. I’m taking tunes from inside my head and try to put them on tape instead of hiding them in my drawers. Some parts are good and can be used to write songs – Some parts are just bad.
What song of yours is the one you like the most?
Like trying to say which one of your kids you like the best is of course impossible. But I really like a song I wrote for my firstborn child. Just Because ->
I wish I could have told you
That you´re the reason why
I get up in the morning
Just to see your smile
That is why I wrote this song for you
– Just because I love you more than you know
When you stand there smiling
Whispering to me
The smallest words for you now
Are the biggest ones for me
How do you write your music?
In my profession I travel a lot so I try to make the best out of every situation so therefore I record all demos in different hotel rooms which you of course also can hear effecting the quality. Normally I have an idea or story that I want to capture and then I set the framework in Garageband. Nothing complicated.
What is music?
Music is great thing going in through your ears and body, creating magic.
What influences do you have?
I listen to all kinds of music, my passion is good and simple melodies.
I love everything from The Beatles to Mötley Crüe.
What´s the best experience you have had with your project?
Best experience is probably getting feedback from friends and folks that listened to the songs and have comments to them. I don´t care much if you think it´s bad, I put them down to get them out of my head.
What plans do you have this year?
The plan was to write and ”release” one demo every week throughout this year but I realize that I will fail.
Mention something you don´t like about your project.
I don´t really like to record bad songs but sometimes you just have to finish some of them to be able to move FORWARD.
When songs/melodies (for me) get stuck in my head, they hurt.
Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project.
As this not really is a project and there is nothing on the line so to say, there have been none actually.
What band, music project or solist from your city do you like?
I think the band Easy October is fantastic. They have great songs and are very professional.
If your project was a word, what would it be?
What´s your full name? Where were you when you answered the interview?
@jerkernilsson74, sitting in a hotel room in Son, Norway looking out my window and see a fjord. Have to go write another song…
