Steso Songs

Date: Thursday 26 March
Time: 12:10-12:50
Vardagsrummet, Humanities Building

Steso Songs (Karolina Stenström) resides in Hultsfred in the province of Småland. She claims it to be a place where there is little else to do than looking at pine trees, playing piano and losing your mind.

Her new EP titled "Lilies on fire" was released in December 2014, and it's her first release since the critically acclaimed debut "Now it's Dark" from 2010. The musical style is dark as a thick pine forests with shimmering melodies and dramatic lyrics.

Winhill/Losehill has been universally praised for their debut album ”Swing of sorrow” (2012), a double-album packed with 19 tracks.  The album is dedicated to Jonas Lundberg's mother Karin who had died of cancer a few years earlier. It went to #36 in the Swedish Albums Chart in its first week of release. The debut single from the album is 'Tell Her She’s the Light of the Worl

After the success of ”Swing of Sorrow”, the band has worked together with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of Norrlandsoperan, which has had a great influence on the sounds and tones in their new songs.  ”We have really been able to take the music and arrangements to new heights," says Henrik Nybom, percussionist and arranger in the band.

Winhill/Losehill recently released the single ”Working on the side”, from their second album "Trouble Will Snowball." All of the songs on the album were recorded and mixed at Decibel Studios in Stockholm by Måns Lundberg (brorther of Jonas Svennem), who has also mixed Veronica Maggio's album ”Handen i fickan fast jag bryr mig”, and mixed and co-produced  Håkan Hellström's album ”Det kommer aldrig va över för mig”.

Jonas Svennem (vocals, keyboard)
Henrik Nybom (percussion)
Carl Åkerlund (lyricist)
Petrus Sjövik (bass)
Sofia Högstadius (violin)
Kalle Lundin (keyboard, guitar)

In April 2014, the bluegrass quintet G2 once again returned on a flight to Nashville, the legendary city that has grown to be a second home for several members of the band. This time it was to record a new album. The result is Mind Over Matter, which demonstrates a more diverse musical range including a personal sound and sounwritin.

When performing live, G2 delivers energy and dynamics, as well as a feeling that your are sitting in their living room. It's acoustic music as it can best be experienced. G2's unique sound consists of a mix of pop and American roots music - a recipe that managed to capture both a younger and older audience and is the basis for their success, not least in the US, where they have toured extensively and in just a few years have become synonymous with world-class European bluegrass. They have performed in major music festivals in the company of artists like Merle Haggard, Sam Bush, David Grisman, Del McCoury and the Punch Brothers. They are the only non-American band that has ever played at the prestigious IBMA Awards show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
