What would artists be without people listening to their music? Nothing. The idea of having listeners be part of the song appeals to me in many ways. My song “I Sound Depressed” will be out very soon and you can choose to take part in it by investing a sum of your choice. The money will be spent on future music and new creative ways to promote it. I really do believe this could be the future of independent music, so let us be pioneers.
I wrote the song together with Dennis Svennebäck and Amanda Johansson, two amazing songwriters that I've had the pleasure of working with for about two years now. They've become close friends of mine and this song wouldn't have been the same without them. I am so happy about the way Dennis managed to capture the essence of the song throughout the production. I am also grateful to have had the opportunity to work on the lyrics together with a friend like Amanda. It felt more like we were all just hanging out rather than hard at work writing a song. It's been such a pleasant process filled with long conversations about life, and the feeling of numbness that follows several hard life lessons. What I love the most about this song is that its meaning can be perceived in many different ways depending on the listeners own life story.
