It’s been quite a while since Feather and Down (me) made an appearance. I’ve been keeping myself busy working in the background of other artists and been enjoying it a lot. But now comes the time for brushing off my solo project again. Yay! I will support the fabulous artist Linnea Olsson on her coming […]
It’s been a really fun fall so far for Feather and Down!
I’ve been busy travelling back and forth from Stockholm to Tokyo a couple of times and just this week both my albums are finally available on iTunes Worldwide and Spotify. The bird’s nest was released in Japan in 2011 and Revisits was released in June 2012. Click on Albums to listen and get some news!
In August I was invited to the fashion show Pal Fes in Tokyo in a collaboration with the brand Gallarda Galante. It was a great show and the first time I’ve ever played live at a grand piano to a catwalk. Have a look at Media to watch a video from the live performance.
Last week it was time to go back to Tokyo for a collaboration with Japanese composer Yoko Kanno once again. Last time we met was in Malmö where we recorded the music for the Olympus Pen Commercial. This time we met in the studio for another commercial and it was a great experience working with Yoko again. Such a warm hearted and talented person!
So, what’s next?
I am planning on writing some new songs for another album. We will see what the future brings! Until then, take care.
I got a package from Taka in Tokyo asking me to use what was in it to film a little in Stockholm. It was a Lomokino 35 mm camera. Me and two friends got out and filmed at least 15 film rolls…we had a great time but our hands were freezing since it was one of the first days of spring. It turned out this way!
The song is Big Yellow Taxi from my new album Revisits.
Better late than never… Feather and Down’s second album was released in Japan June 6th!
The album is called Revisits and it’s a cover album of songs from the 70′, 80’s and 90’s. Songs that I grew up with and that means something special to me. It is produced by Klas Gullbrand. We had a great time recording these old hits in our own
way and we got great help from Jonas Drejholt who arranged and played piano on two songs.
At the moment you can buy it on iTunes Japan but eventually also on iTunes Worldwide.
So it’s time for me to go to Tokyo again!
I am very happy to announce that Feather and Down will perform live at the Pal Fes Festival in the Hikarie Hall, Shibuya on August 25th. The festival will be broadcasted live by MTV Japan. I am looking forward to meeting friends, eating good food and of course to perform in Tokyo again!
The Dark Mountain Project is arranging a festival where music, theatre and film is combined with discussions and workshops about our future. Read more about this interesting project at www.darkmountain.se Book May 26th in your calendar!
Feather and Down is invited to play, and I am happy to announce that amazingly talented Anders Scherp is going to join me on a few songs. He is also playing with his own band af Scherp.

I came home from a great time in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago. No cherry blossoms…. but Taka from IRMA Records took such good care of me and arranged the gigs in the best of ways. I’m posting some photos from the gigs at the Carlife Store in Naka-Meguro and from Saravah Tokyo in […]
Feather and Down is coming to Tokyo at the end of March!
I am doing two solo gigs and am very, very excited to come and visit this beautiful city once again. On March 30th I am playing at the Carlife Store in Naka Meguro and on April 1st at Saravah Tokyo. If I am lucky maybe the cherry blossoms will bloom….I cross my fingers!
