Hi, if you can watch it – don’t miss Andra chansen, the fifth melodifestivalen contest, tonight. Andreas Johnson will perform our song “Lovelight”. Please vote for us!! I suspect it’s going to be nervewrecking…

Stuck in Leksand with the broken arm blues again


If you consider to start playing icehockey in a mature age – listen up! Don’t do it! Last thursday I broke my arm during a promotion icehockey game between local team Leksand and the artists of the third melodifestivalen contest. Trying to score against Leksand paid off with a badly injured arm and a visit to the hospital later the same day. Anyway – I can still play guitar if I put the capo way up on the neck. So for six weeks on, you will only hear me write ukulele-style songs!

The song that I co-wrote with Andreas Johnson for the festival, “Lovelight”, ended up in Andra chansen (in Nyköping, March 3, 8pm in SVT1). If you watch it, do vote for us! We really want to make it to the final!

Hmm… I heard that Nyköping has a good hockey team too… And I’ve still got one arm left…
